Snake River looking to rebound from slow start

The Little Snake River Valley School six-man football team had a rough start to its season and is working on turning things around.

The Rattlers, participants in each of the past three state championship games in Wyoming, were replacing two consecutive classes of seniors and struggled mightily in their first two games. They lost to Saratoga, 58-12, in Week One and then to Meeteetse, 57-8, the following week.

Since then, Snake River has won two in a row, beating Farson-Eden, 38-16, and St. Stephens, 63-0. The Rattlers have four games remaining this season, starting with a game at Hanna Elk Mountain on Friday in Hanna, Wyo.
