Rangers fall to 1-1 after road loss to Thermopolis, 34-0

The Kemmerer High School football team hoped to carry the momentum of their Week 1 victory over Glenrock into their first road game of the season Friday, as they made the four-hour bus ride to Thermopolis. The Bobcats (1-2) had other plans. Taking full advantage of a Kemmerer squad that wasn’t quite playing to the potential they showed just a week before, the home team racked up 34 first-half points en route to a decisive first win of the season. The Rangers’ defense kept Thermop off the scoreboard in the second half, but was unable to take advantage of their own scoring opportunities in the 34-0 loss.

KHS football skews young, but hungry for success

Looking to improve on back-to-back 2-6 seasons, the Kemmerer High School football team will rely on a Youth Movement to make that happen in 2023, though head coach Bart Jernigan likes what he sees so far after a full week of practice. “We look all right — young, in a lot of spots — but the kids we have coming out definitely have a pretty good base underneath them, and are pretty aggressive,” Jernigan said. “Hopefully, we’ll be able to ease them into contact where we need it and — outside of that — our older guys can step up and take the lead, and show them [the younger players] the things we want and need done.”
