A 27-7 loss to River Valley on Friday evening at Payson High School Stadium has all but ended the Longhorn football team's aspirations of qualifying for the postseason state tournament.
With the defeat, Payson falls to 3-5 on the season and even a win in next week’s 2011 finale probably won’t earn the team enough power points to qualify for a state at large berth.
