<strong>Logan easily wins the Battle of the Bruins Bill Walter / Ajay Salveson</strong>

Bear River was given a rude awakening to the start of the football season in a 49-14 blowout delivered by the Logan High Grizzlies. DJ Nelson was the catalyst in an offensive clinic put on by the Grizzlies, all of it shown in the first half. Logan went up 21 to 0 one play into the 2nd quarter on the Bears. Logan then went on and scored 21 more in the 2nd to go up 42 to 0 at halftime. The Bears defense shutout the Grizzlies in the second half. Bear River finally got on the score board in the 3rd Qtr. Bear River head coach Chris Wise felt that Wes Fukui was the bright spot for the Bears but it would be one of the very few on the long night in Logan. Logan takes the first game with a 49 – 14 mauling at Crimson Field. The Bears will look to rebound against the Preston Indians next Friday night in Garland at 7pm.
