The Battle Mountain High School football team closed out the regular season this past Thursday on the Nevada/Utah border with a 36-6 win over West Wendover.

The Longhorns improved to 6-3 overall and 5-2 in the Northern 2A and will be the No. 3 seed from the Northern 2A, as the NIAA 2A State Championships get under way this week.

Battle Mountain will travel to Lovelock on Friday to play Pershing County at 6 p.m. 

The Mustangs won the regular season match-up 39-22 on Oct. 20, in Battle Mountain. The Longhorns led the game 13-0 and it was tied at 19 at halftime.

The winner of that game will play at the top remaining seed from the Southern 2A on Saturday, Nov. 12, unless Yerington is upset in the first round.

If the Lions were to lose on Friday, the winner would become the top remaining seed left in northern Nevada

Yerington hosts Incline in the other Northern 2A match-up on Friday. If the Lions win, they will host the lower remaining seed from the Southern 2A on Nov. 12.
