HEBER CITY — Timpview rolled to a 35-0 road victory over Wasatch on Friday, earning the T'Birds the Region 8 crown.
Timpview (8-1, 5-0 Region 8) came into the game on a six-game winning streak. With Salem Hills losing to Maple Mountain on Friday, it ensured the T'Birds of an outright region championship with one week remaining in the regular season.
As he has done all season, quarterback Britain Covey led the way for Timpview. Covey threw for three touchdowns and added a 96-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.
After a scoreless first quarter, Covey hit McKinley Wilson for a 4-yard touchdown pass to get the scoring started. Later in the second, Kainoa Tuua returned a blocked punt 28 yards for a touchdown, and with another Covey TD pass, this one to AJ Frank, the T'Birds went into halftime with a 21-0 lead.
Covey threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Holloway in the third quarter before his 96-yard run ended the scoring for the night.
The loss eliminated Wasatch (4-5 2-4), playing its final region game of the season, from playoff contention.
