The Bulldogs are headed to the Wyoming High School football playoffs but it was certainly a convoluted process to get there.
The Bulldogs first wrapped up their regular season with a lopsided victory over conference foe NSI on Friday.
Their 42-0 victory over the winless Wolves, combined with a Southeast victory over fellow conference foes Lingle-Ft. Laramie created a three-way tie within the 1A East conference between Sundance, Pine Bluffs and Lingle-Ft. Laramie for the third and fourth seeded playoff spots.
The three teams travelled to Douglas on Tuesday where they each played one half of a game against each other. Lingle-Ft.Laramie beat Pine Bluffs in the opening half of play then lost to the Bulldogs during the next half-game. Pine Bluffs then took on the Bulldogs for a third half-game. Pine Bluffs came away with the victory in that contest which threw the teams back into a three-way tie.
Officials from the Wyoming High School Athletics Association then went to a coin flip to decide which of the three would go to the playoff games. Ultimately Sundance won the coin flip and was selected as the third-seeded team from the conference. Lingle-Ft. Laramie was selected as fourth-seed based on their regular season win over Pine Bluffs.
As third-seeds the Bulldogs will take on Riverside in Basin on Saturday. Kickoff for that game is set for 1 p.m.
