One of my pet peeves is sportwriters' abuse of the phrase 'unanswered
points'. There is a difference between 38 consecutive points and 38
unanswered points, the latter implying that in this case Alta did not score
again in the broadest sense or that even the last score of the 38 point run was
'unanswered' in the most narrow sense.Not picking on this
writer in particular; it is a common (mal)practice.
There is no shame in losing to Timpview. Just about everyone has felt the might
of that schools legendary program at some point. They are considered one of the
most successful programs in the state for a reason. Alta is still going to go
far this year in 5A, but Timpview was just better.I'm looking
forward to Timpview vs Springville this year. The game they had a few years
back that broke Timpview's winning streak was one of the most incredible
football games I have seen in my life. 4A has some solid talent across the
whole division this year. Should make for some great football.
I thought Alta was supposed to be good this year?
