The Lone Peak High School Big Horns football team (2-2) suffered a
disappointing defeat in their home opener 57-12 to Billings Christian on
Saturday, Sept. 28.
Billings (4-0) got off to a fast start with two quick touchdowns that had the
Big Horns in a hole all afternoon. The home team had trouble containing the
faster, bigger Billings squad, which has several returning seniors on its roster
and took full advantage of their size and speed.

Eddie Starz rolls out for a pass

The Big Horns scored near the end of the first half with a 22-yard pass play
from quarterback Eddie Starz to Cooper Shea in the corner of the end zone.
The Big Horns also scored early in the fourth quarter on another pass play
from Starz to Shea, but were unable to convert their extra point attempts.
The Big Horns have been playing on the road since early September and have
two more home games, the Oct. 12 homecoming game against West
Yellowstone and Oct. 26 against Lima.
The homecoming game will feature the coronation of the homecoming royalty
and a community parade with local homecoming floats and other
festivities. For more information on LPHS Homecoming, see section three in
this newspaper.
