STANSBURY — Six different players found the end zone Wednesday night in leading the Stansbury Stallions to a perfect Region 11 season in school-record fashion with a 70-13 victory over Ben Lomond.

The Stallions (8-1, 6-0) will make their first playoff appearance in school history when they host North Sanpete (4-6, 3-2) next week.

Against the Scots, the Stallions (8-1, 6-0), whose 70 points was a school record, got things started in a hurry when Stansbury’s leading tackler Colton May stepped in front of a Ben Lomond pass and took it 25 yards to the end zone to make it 7-0 Stallions just over a minute into the game.

After the Stallions recorded a safety to go up 9-0, Chandler Staley added an 18-yard run to make it 16-0, and Jake Witkowski added a two-yard run after a great punt return on the previous play, and Chase Christiansen added a four-yard run to make 30-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Early in the second, Christiansen found the end zone two more times with 39- and 36-yard runs to push the lead to 42-0. One of his scores was set up by an interception by Nick Mackay.

Just before halftime Witkowski returned a punt for a touchdown to make it 49-0.

Ben Lomond finally got on the board with a nine-yard pass from Austin Sullins to Orsindoe Hernandet to make it 49-7 just before half, and that is how it stood heading to the intermission.

The second half saw several new, younger faces for the Stallions.

On the Stallions’ first drive of the second half, sophomore quarterback Alex Mackay led the Stallions down the field and finished off a 64-yard drive with a 24-yard touchdown run to make it 56-7.

Alex Mackay scored again, this time from 44 yards out, and sophomore Jesse Horowitz added an 88-yard burst to make the score 70-7.

Ben Lomond added a 67-yard touchdown from Nate Watkins to make it 70-13.
