RICH 26, ALTAMONT 12: The Rebels got off to a slow start, but eventually pulled away from Altamont to pick up a nice bounce-back victory after last week's loss to Monticello. Kaden Thomson and Austin Groll each finished the game with a pair of rushing touchdowns.

DUCHESNE 56, LAYTON CHRISTIAN 12: Macoy Young rushed for touchdowns of five, six and 60 yards while his teammate Braiden Despain added two more scores of his own as the Eagles rolled on the road. In fantastic stretch, Duchesne's McKade Nielsen picked off an errant pass and made a house call from 46 yards out, then scored on 31-yard TD reception on the offensive end. Despain finished with 188 yards rushing while Young had 118 yards.


MONTICELLO 73, WHITEHORSE 8: Monticello routed Whitehorse in the one-sided victory.


AMERICAN LEADERSHIP 21, GUNNISON 14: Gunnison jumped out to an early 14-0 lead before American Leadership rallied in the second half. American Leadership's Briggs Fulton went 13-for-28 for 161 yards, connecting with Jordan Lamb and Adam Davis, who combined for 12 receptions for 98 yards.

MILLARD 36, EMERY 27: Millard had a slight advantage in total offense, tallying 340 yards to 218 for Emery. Jesse Winn rushed for 131 yards on the night, and finished the game with a pair of touchdowns to help the Eagles to another region win.

NORTH SUMMIT 35, NORTH SEVIER 6: North Summit literally ran over North Sevier for the road victory. The Braves tallied 276 total rushing yards as Nathan Rees, Jaxon Vernon, and Dixon Richins each took the ball to paydirt. Richins recored two touchdowns in the second half to put the game far out of reach.

MANTI 30, SOUTH SUMMIT 12: South Summit made a game of it with a 12-point second quarter, but it wasn't enough to derail Manti, which remained unbeaten in 2A North play.


SAN JUAN 27, ENTERPRISE 7: San Juan rolled for 20 unanswered points before Enterprise got on the board. The Broncos are now 4-0 in region play, and lead class 1A with a 6-0 overall record.

KANAB 26, SOUTH SEVIER 22: South Sevier pushed Kanab to the limit before the Cowboys pulled through in the end. Brandon Nielson had seven catches for 156 yards and two scores, and he also returned a kick-off 80 yards for another score. Brandon Jenson went 14-for-24 for 237 yards in the win.

BEAVER 28, GRAND 0: Kendall White helped break this game open for Beaver with his scoop-and-score 27-yard fumble recovery early in the second half. Tyler Roberts was a perfect on all four of his PATs.

RICHFIELD 20, PAROWAN 12: Richfield jumped out to a 20-6 lead before halftime and their defense held off Parowan to maintain their lead and the victory. Josh Henry rushed for two touchdowns in the win.


FREMONT 20, DAVIS 7: Fremont allowed one early touchdown and scored 20 unanswered points to get by Davis. Jordan Preator returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown to help seal the win.
