Scott G Winterton, Deseret News,
KINKADE WILDMAN, Logan, football: It wasn't the most efficient performance ever, but Logan's senior quarterback sure made the big plays when he needed to last Friday in a 42-16 victory over Bear River.
Wildman completed 16 of 39 passes for 386 yards and three touchdowns, and rushed for 51 yards and a score, as the Grizzlies overcame a 16-14 deficit early in the third quarter.
Wildman's 74-yard touchdown pass to Chad Artist in the third quarter effectively put the game out of reach for Bear River.
Friday was actually Wildman's second-career start at QB. Because of a suspension to Logan's QB in the 4A quarterfinals last season, Wildman got the starting nod against Olympus and completed 22 of 36 for 260 yards, three TDs but a frustrating four interceptions.
CAMERON TUCKER, Lone Peak, girls soccer: The top-ranked Knights are off to a perfect 4-0-0 start to the 2014 season and the play of this sophomore striker is definitely a big reason why.
Tucker has scored three goals this season, including two game-winners last week against stout competition.
Her first-half goal against Davis last Tuesday was the only goal in a 1-0 victory, and then last Thursday she scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in a 3-2 victory over Maple Mountain.
Big things are expected of the Knights this year, and big reason why is finishing. A year ago coach Heather Dahl's team created the chances but struggled to finish them. Tucker is helping change that with two very timely goals already this season.
