I hate to see this kind of score in high school sports. All this tells me is the coach allowed the score to be run up to fuel his ego.
Just remember that when someone runs up the score on you. Karma

@we wear blue- I agree with you! And I can guarantee if a school would of done this to Stansbury last year in 4A, Stansbury coaches would of thrown a fit!
@masta55- I am curious who is your jv quarterback and 2nd team jv quarterback?

Ogden ran the score up 56-0 against Ben Lomond in 2009. Hop down from your horse. You can't tell the second string not to score.

I'm a starting varsity player at SHS and was one of the first players pulled from the game; 8 min. left in 2nd quarter. With 6 min. left in the 2nd quarter the varsity was pulled out (except for special teams). Before half entire varsity out and starting JV was in (additionally our JV is mostly sophomores). Third quarter played by JV team. Fourth quarter played by 2nd team JV. "just_me" asked who the jv and 2nd team jv quarterbacks were... JV QB is Alex Mackay (soph) and 2nd JV QB Dallin Diederickson (soph). I would also like to point out that every player on the SHS roster played. You mention "karma"... the score was not purposely "run up," all teams executed plays correctly. Coaches did all they could NOT to run up the score.

I can appreciate We wear Blue's comment.. SHS was in that same boat their first two years and know all to well what it feels like. As for that game last night? Besides trying to throw 'karma' into it you want to take a well played game away from the players. Not just SHS players but Ben Lomond. Ben Lomond boys played HARD, they got into the end zone TWICE, and no matter what Stansbury did or how hard SHS SIDE CHEERED for them to get into the end zone the younger classman did what they have trained so hard to do. There was no malice in what happened last night and SHS coaches did everything possible. My heart went out to Ben Lomonds team. Where was THEIR SUPPORT? I don't know how they do things up there but I know that me along with SHS parents traveled win or lose from the beginning. Don't try to take this from the SHS players or put Ben Lomond down, all those boys put their hard work into every season!!

"Where was THEIR SUPPORT? I don't know how they do things up there but i know that me along with SHS parents traveled win or lose from the beginning."

Wow! thats a bold statement. What exactly are you trying to say? That BLHS parents don't love and support their children? Is anyone else from Ogden offended?

That is my point. Until you walk a mile in someone elses shoes please keep comments like that to yourself. I happen to know that BLHS has families that are not as affulent as some. With work schedules and extra cost for gas, game tickets, ect, some may find it hard to get to games that far away. You are assuming a lot. I am sure most parents would love to spend an evening under the stars watching thier child play football.

Unfortunatly whether it be scores in football games or life, we all will at one time or another will be humbled. Good luck to you.

LOL! I have MORE than walk in those shoes.. I am a SINGLE MOTHER working TWO JOBS!!! I have support FOUR football players on my own since they were 8 years old.. traveled.. paid to get in.. sat in rain.. snow.. sun & more. So get off your soap box and check the boundaries of SHS we are a hard working class community.. SHAME ON YOU!

It sounds like Stansbury took all reasonable measures not to run up the score. Sometimes things like this happen. I think Coach Christiansen would understand this more than anyone as he was the coach when Timpview ran up the score on Provo 63-0. Unlike this game Timpview kept the starters in the whole game, did an onside kick (twice) ahead 42-0 and called time out to try to score again before half, also ahead 42-0. It doesn't sound like this game went like that one. It sounds like the second units/JV units on down got a chance to play significant time and simply executed well.

Congrats to Coach Christiansen and Stansbury for a great season. It will be interesting to see how far the Stallions can go in the 3A playoffs.

The score is a bit much, but you can't ask kids to not try. If BL doesn't like it, do something about it on the field.

Let them enjoy it, they have not played anybody yet. So let the crying begin in the next 2 weeks.

Anyways....good luck to all of the teams in the playoffs! I will be cheering on Stansbury, and a few other teams in other divisions as well. Gotta support family, you know? @ d0wns0uth Hurricane is tearin it up this season. So props to Hurricane.

You can ask any player its more embarrassing when a team doesnt even try against you then when a team runs up the score
