Snake River secures playoff spot

The Little Snake River Valley School six-man football team has continued its revival through the second half of the football season and earned a playoff spot.

The Rattlers now are 3-2 on the season and 3-1 in their conference after an 0-2 start overall. Beating Wyoming Indian School, 46-12, on Oct. 11 pushed the Rattlers to a winning record for the first time this season and also guaranteed them at least a three seed in the six-man West conference.

After a 52-7 loss to defending state champions Dubois Saturday, the Rattlers are guaranteed the three seed in the West. Meeteetse, which beat Snake River, 57-8, in the second game of the season, has been a surprise group to go undefeated so far and has locked up the No. 1 seed in the West.
