Published: Wednesday, Oct. 10 2012 5:18 p.m. MDT

Snow Canyon suffered its first shutout since Sept. 10, 2004, a span of 82 games. That ended the 27th longest scoring streak in state history and eighth longest current streak in number of games. But among active streaks, only two schools — San Juan (1999) and Alta (2002) — have gone longer in time than the Warriors had without getting shut out.

Meanwhile, Bear River notched its first shutout in almost six years to the day. The Bears silenced Ogden 43-0 on Oct. 6, 2006, and took care of Grantsville 21-0 on Oct. 5. Only Taylorsville, Roy, Lehi, Murray and Tooele have gone longer without posting a shutout.

Park City set a state record for scoring the most points in a losing cause in a non-overtime game when the Miners dropped a 51-49 decision to Uintah. The previous high was 48 by three teams:

Dixie (lost to Springville 55-48 in 2010); Provo (fell to Snow Canyon 56-48 in 1998) and Spanish Fork (succumbed to Timpanogos 55-48 in 2007).

Logan’s Passing Game

But Braddy has 123 career receptions, the 10th most in Utah prep history.
