<strong>Mountain Crest</strong>

Mountain Crest started off slow but ended up dominating the Ogden Tigers, winning 55-14. The Mustangs managed to take a 35-0 lead toward the end of the first half, which in turn put the mercy rule into effect in the second half. Coach Wootten decided to play many non-starters in the second half, including Hall in at quarterback. Alex Kuresa only played one possession for the Mustangs in the second half.


Box Elder 21, Logan 17 final. A controversial play with :08 left. Gunnter for the Bees was tackled near the goal line for no gain. Box Elder was out of time outs. However, the refs stopped the clock giving the Bees another chance. Box Elder scored a TD with :02 left. Logan’s loss means there is currently a three-way tie for first place in Region 5.

<strong>Bear River</strong>

In a battle for the Region 11 title, it was the Juan Diego Eagles coming up with the victory, giving the Eagles a happy Homecoming win 28-7. The Bears struck first, after recovering a Juan Diego fumble on the Eagles’ first play of scrimmage. Payton Wells threw a beautiful pass to A.J. Sanchez to make it 7-0 with less than two minutes gone by. From there it was all Juan Diego. After a slow first half which saw the teams knotted up at 7 a piece, the Eagles would score on their next two possessions. The Bears didn’t help their cause by turning over the ball three of their next four possessions. Bears will now rest with their bye week and then play their final regular season home game against Grantsville on October 22nd.

<strong>Sky View</strong>

The Sky View Bobcats pounced on the Bonneville Lakers from the get-go, and never looked back, as they rolled to a 38-6 victory on Senior Night in front of a large home crowd. Sky View was directed to the win by the play of sophomore quarterback Nick Carver. Carver threw for four TD passes in his first career varsity start, after splitting time at quarterback with Gabe Anderson in the last couple of games.The Bobcat defense was particularly stout, as they only gave up 28 yards of total offense in the first half, and forced numerous turnovers throughout the course of the game. Sky View will have two weeks to prepare for a big game with Mountain Crest, as they have a bye next Friday. With a win over Mountain Crest in two weeks, the Bobcats would force a play-in game for the final spot in the state playoffs, as there would be a tie in third place, with three teams going to the playoffs from the region.
