3 Idaho High School Football Games You Shouldn’t Have Missed in Week 5

Ryan Messerly didn’t hesitate.

The Bear Lake football coach kept his offense on the field after Tayson Neal scored in overtime. Neal delivered again by hitting Tyler Beresford in the end zone for the Bears’ biggest win in years.

They handed the West Side their first loss in 1,113 days in a 28-27 overtime victory. It also ended the state’s longest winning streak at 35 games dating back to September 13, 2019.

“We knew we were playing the No. 1 team in the state, so we just said, ‘We’re going to draw all our cards and here we go,'” Messerly said. “It’s definitely a roller coaster of emotions right now. We know the work our kids have put in and to see it come to fruition, that’s why we play the game.”
