At halftime on Saturday, things didn’t look good for the Broncs.
Down 0-1 to Thunder Basin, the Jackson Hole High School boys soccer team walked into the locker room worried about a shutout in the 4A state championship. Coach Matt Hoelscher delivered a pep talk and the team came out feeling a bit stronger for the first 18 minutes of the second half. Then with 22 minutes left to play, Mother Nature intervened with a lightning delay that gave Jackson a chance to get pumped up.
“It’s still hard to believe,” senior Leo Harland said of how the game unfolded with the Broncs coming back to win 2-1 in overtime. “That game was crazy.”
