Broncs Blow by Buffalo, to Play for 3rd Straight State Title

Written by on November 5, 2022

Jackson Schroeder had 124 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns and the Cody Broncs ran past Buffalo Friday night to clinch a spot in the Class 3A State Championship game.

Cody has advanced to the title game for the 3rd year in a row and 5th time in the last 9 years.

The Broncs got the ball rolling in the semi-final contest with a 46 yard touchdown pass from Luke Talich to Remy Broussard and Cody led early 7-0.

Talich would leave the game early due to an undisclosed injury and never returned.

Enter Maddox Ball. Ball would be tasked with a tough assignment but rose to the occasion. After a couple of turnovers and some stingy defense Ball would put together a drive to end the 1st.

Cody led 7-0 after one quarter

Early in the 2nd that drive payed dividends as A.J. Baustert scored on a 6 yard touchdown run.

Cody’s 2nd quarter dominance, this season, continued as the Broncs scored 21 in the frame: Matt Nelson and Schroeder also scored in the quarter and the Broncs took a 28-0 lead into halftime.

Cody could taste the title appearance at that point.

Ball would open up the 3rd quarter with his first touchdown pass of the game, a 16 yard pass to his cousin Jacob and the route was on.

Schroeder scored once more to start the fourth and the Broncs secured the title appearance.

Leading the way for the Broncs:

Again, Schroeder had 124 yards rushing and 2 TD’s. He also had an interception.

Luke Talich finished the night 2-3 passing for 51 yards and a TD. He also ran the ball 5 times for 20 yards.

Maddox Ball was 5-7 through the air for 53 yards and a score. He also ran the ball 9 times for 49 yards.

Remy Broussard had 6 carries for 37 yards.

A.J. Baustert had a touchdown run.

Jacob Ball had a touchdown catch.

Grady McCarten and Trey Thomasson combined for 25 rushing yards.

Matt Nelson had 9 carries for 19 yards and a TD. He also had 5 catches 42 yards.

Cody has now won 10 games this season and are riding a 26-game win streak which dates back to the 2020 season.

The Broncs will square up with Star Valley for the 2022 Class 3A State Championship game. That contest will take place at 3 in the afternoon at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie. The game will be carried live on KODI.
