The football field at Pine Bluffs High School is less than half a mile from the Nebraska border. Wyoming Indian made the long trek to eastern Laramie County Friday and fell hard to the Pine Bluffs Hornets 49-0 in inter-conference Class 1-A football action. The game was the season opener for both teams. Pine Bluffs's Landon Naranjo was a oneman wrecking crew against the Chief's defense. Naranjo tallied five touchdowns on runs of 20, 30 and 11 yards. He added two more scores on passes from Taylor Fornstrom of 20 and 25 yards.Wyoming Indian's offense was nearly nonexistent, as the Chiefs couldn't generate any consistent drives. Wyoming Indian junior running back Ramiro Gonzalez paced the Chiefs with 37 yards on nine carries. Fellow junior Jesse Moss found the going much tougher, losing a total of four yards on eight attempts. Senior tight end Tyler Williamson had a good outing, snagging five balls for 31 yards. The Chiefs tallied just five yards on the ground and only 21 through the air. Wyoming Indian hosts Rocky Mountain this Friday in the Chief's home opener. Rocky blew out Normative Services 36-7 at Cowley. Normative Services host Pine Bluffs next Friday as well.
