<strong>SMITHFIELD—</strong> Picking up steam headed into the 4A State playoffs, the Sky View football team rolled its way to a 45-10 win over a winless Weber squad Wednesday at home in Smithfield.

“It was a solid effort,” SV head coach Craig Anhder said. “I don’t think anything stood out as far anything special, but it was just play after play the kids played hard and kept trying to get better. This gives us good momentum going into the playoffs.”

The Bobcat offense could do little wrong in the first half, marching 65 yards on their opening possession to jump in front 7-0 and they’d never look back.

Junior quarterback Braxton Godderidge led the Sky View offense to the end zone on two of Sky View first three possessions, and capitalized on several Warrior miscues to run up the score. Senior running backs Ethan Dursteler and Skyler Hunt each ran for a score in the first half, and Godderidge added two through the air en route to a 31-0 lead at the intermission.

Seniors Mitch Larson and Ethan Dursteler each caught a touchdown pass in the first half of senior night for the Bobcats, and while the offense was moving down the field at will, the defense did everything it could to push Weber backwards with eight tackles for loss in the first half to hold the Warriors to just 42 yards.

“We’ve still got work to do in the playoffs,” senior wide receiver Daniel Lemon said. “It was pretty big, we’ve (the seniors) been playing together for awhile. We’ve really come together as a team, not just the seniors, but to go out on senior night and get a big win, it feels good.”

Lemon had six catches for 87 yards through three quarters, and despite a big play touchdown from Weber to start the second half, the Bobcats continued to stretch their lead on a pair of Godderridge touchdown passes.

Godderridge finished with 278 yards and four touchdowns for the Bobcats before being pulled early in the 4th quarter, but the Bobcats continued to move the ball in his absence to run out the clock.

“It’s great for the seniors on senior night,” Anhder said. “All of them; I’m just proud of all of them. They all played tonight and they played well. We did what we were supposed to do, and finished the game like we were supposed to finish.”

The Bobcats finished the regular season at 5-5 overall, and 2-3 in Region 5 to clinch the No. 4 seed. While the Warriors fell to 0-10 – their second consecutive winless season.

Sky View will have a week off before the playoffs start, as they take on Region 8 No. 1 seed Timpview in the first round of the 4A State playoffs on Friday, Oct 26.
