CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - At this point, everyone knows what happened in the Capital City Bowl.

East (6-1) traveled across town and dominated Central 41-18.

However, in sports win or lose, the most important day is today and both the Indians (6-1) and T-Birds are putting the game behind them.

“The Saturday morning after was pretty tough for a lot of us but, coming in Monday, spirits were pretty high and we’re ready to get back to work and play our opponent this week,” Central Senior James Koenig said.

For East, the game was a dream come true but the Thunderbirds are not going to be complacent.

“[The mindset is to] kind of just get better today," East Senior Graedyn Buell said. "We’re gonna focus on getting better today, we’re gonna have a good practice today. And we’ll focus for Kelly Walsh all week, but we’re not gonna worry about them yet. We’re just gonna get better everyday this week and come Friday we’ll get ready for them.”

As Buell said, East plays Kelly Walsh (3-4) on Friday. The T-Birds get to stay at home for this contest.

Central hosts Rock Springs (4-3) at Riske Field.

Both games are set to kickoff at 6p.m.
