The Tri-City Diesel's offensive struggles continued as the Wyoming Cavalry came into town and took home a 41-23 victory.

The Cavalry struck first early in the first quarter, the Diesel were able to answer to tie the score at seven but it was a one-sided battle after that as Wyoming scored 27 unanswered points.  The Diesel were able to add two touchdowns late in the fourth but it was too little too late.

Greg Lathan caught two of the touchdowns with Kevin Rhaburn pulling in the other one, Sherman Jones and Tyrone Thomas each had four catches.

Brian Smith led the Diesel defense with nine tackles including a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.  Luke Kucera and Adrian Watson each had five tackles and one sack also.  John English picked up the Diesel's only interception of the game.
