EVANSTON — The Evanston Red Devils football team suffered a loss at home to the Jackson Hole Broncs on Friday, marking their seventh straight loss this season. This match-up was especially tough because Jackson is a very strong team, leaving Evanston to try to play catch up after a hard-scoring first half. 

Not content to lie down and take a beating, the Devils were still trying to force plays all the way to the end. “The kids never gave up; that says a lot about their character,” said head coach Jim Burton.

The final score was 62-13, with Evanston scoring both touchdowns in the second half. The Devils also stepped up their defensive game in the second half, trying to stop the Broncs from picking up as many gains as in the first half. 

Next up, Evanston will wrap up the season taking on Star Valley on the road at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25.
