Tigers fall at Rangely
They had the lead early, but mistakes took a toll Friday night for the Tigers as the Hayden High School football team traveled to Rangely for a game, losing 32-8.
“It was closer than it showed,” coach Ryan Wilkie said. “It was the best effort we’ve had so far this year.”
The Tigers led nearly to halftime, only giving up the lead with 26 seconds remaining in the second quarter. The score was 12-8 at the break, but mistakes caught up with Hayden as the game wore on.
The team took its first possession of the second half deep into enemy territory, but couldn’t score. It blocked a punt moments later, but once again couldn’t take advantage of the field position.
It got its first touchdown early from junior Christian Carson, and the two-point conversion on a pass from Garret St. Clair to Michael Ferrier, but that was the offense’s highlight on the night.

“We were trying to get back in it and had some turnovers,” Wilkie said. “It got away from us late.”
The team, 1-3, is back in action at 7 p.m. Friday at home against West Grand.
“We were proud of the effort tonight,” Wilkie said. “Now we have to get ready for West Grand and give it all we got again.”
