Bear River’s 62-48 score-a-thon win over Tooele saw the most combined points (110) in a non-overtime game since 1972 and the sixth-most ever. Tooele’s effort tied the Buffaloes in second place for the most points in a losing cause. (Park City fell to Uintah 51-49 just last year.)

In guiding the Bears to victory, JarDee Nessen set four school records with 493 yards of total offense, 492 passing yards (the 10th best all-time performance statewide), seven TD passes (which ranks third all-time) and eight touchdowns overall (which is fifth most all-time).

His favorite receiver, Colton Jensen, amassed 283 reception yards, which ranks fourth-best all-time. It’s the most since 2010 when Wasatch’s Keefer Babbitt established the state record with 314 receiving yards.

Jordan’s Austin Kafentzis racked up 569 total offense yards – the fourth best performance on record – even though in came in a losing effort. That’s the most since Logan’s D.J. Nelson set the state mark with 606 in 2011.

Kafentzis’ career total offense – 10,626 yards – is 2,291 away from matching the state record. He’s seventh in career passing yards with 7,047 and has completed 459 passes, just seven shy of moving into the top-10.

Hurricane’s Ethan Stratton became the 21st Utah prep gridder to kick 100 career extra points. But two other active players are ahead of him this year: Duchesne’s Braxton Spencer has booted 119 (tied for 13th all-time) and Juan Diego’s Andrew Montoya has 110 (tied for 18th).

Pleasant Grove’s Spencer Romney returned two punts for scores – that hasn’t happened since 2007.

Bingham tied the state record for Team Interceptions Returned for Touchdowns with three…. Also last week, Juan Diego scored a school-record 69 points in beating up Ben Lomond.
