Wolves shut out Miners in high school football semifinals
The Park City High School football team lost its matchup against the Green Canyon Wolves in the 4A semifinals Thursday night.
The Park City Miners traveled to Rice-Eccles Stadium at the University of Utah for their 4A semifinal game against the Green Canyon Wolves on Thursday night. The Miners entered the contest averaging 36 points per game. However, a stingy Wolves defense held the Miners scoreless in a 21-0 win.
The Wolves took the opening kickoff and marched 80 yards for a touchdown. From there, the two teams were locked in a defensive battle. The Miners struggled to move the ball, but their own stiff defense kept the game close with a halftime score of 7-0.
Fortunes did not change for Park City following the break. Green Canyon dominated the third quarter with two touchdowns and a stifling defense that would not allow the Miners any momentum. Leading 21-0 in the fourth quarter, the Wolves methodically held the ball for much of the quarter as an exhausted Park City defense was helpless to stop them.
The Miners finish their outstanding season with an 11-2 record. Green Canyon advances to the 4A championship game and will take on the winner of Friday night’s Ridgeline/Crimson Cliffs game.
