Park City Miners Drop to 0-2, As Wasatch, South Summit Win Second Straight
High School Football continued across the state for Week 2 of the season, with road trips for most Wasatch Back schools.
The Park City Miners fell to 0-2 this week as they traveled to the Cache Valley to take on the Green Canyon Wolves of North Logan. After a slow first quarter, the Miners entered halftime with the lead, 10-9. After halftime, the Wolves answered Park City’s scores, with a touchdown and field goal to take over the lead, 19-10 to enter the 4th quarter. After Blake Tabaracci’s rushing touchdown late in the 4th, the Miners were down by two. The Wolves threw the ball for multiple incompletions afterwards, which stopped the clock, and gave the Miners one last chance to march down the field and score. But as time expired, the would-be game winning field goal went wide left, to end the game 19-17, in Green Canyon’s favor.
The Miners continue their road trip next week to St. George, where they will take on the Pine View Panthers, for their final non-region game of the season. Coverage begins Friday at 7pm on KPCW.
Elsewhere in the Cache Valley, the Wasatch Wasps flew into Hyrum, to take on the Mustangs of Mountain Crest. After a slow first half, the Wasps came out the locker room for a huge second half. Wasatch Quarterback Adarius Edwards threw for a massive seven touchdown passes to lead the Wasps to a 51-3 victory over the Mustangs.
Wasatch improves to 2-0 on the season and continues next week at home to take on the Mountain Ridge Sentinels of Herriman.
Back in Kamas, North Summit and South Summit played each other, with the Wildcats winning over the Braves, 19-6. Wildcats Quarterback Kyler Sudweeks had one rushing and one passing touchdown to lead the Wildcats to improve to 2-0 on the year. The Braves fall to 1-1.
Next week, South Summit plays at home against the South Sevier Rams, and North Summit also plays at home against the Wolves of North Sevier.
