    I was at this game and I can truely say MC never gave up. They fought the entire game and if it wasn't for that call that was made by the ref conveniently on the Lone Peak sidline, MC would have won. That call killed us and Lone Peak shouldn't be happy about walking off the field with the game pretty much handed to them.

    Wow! This was an amazing game and such a heartbreaker as a die hard MC fan. When Hall's punt return was called back for 12 men on the field it gave Lone Peak an automatic first down? I was shocked. Also, the one second being put back on the clock was a questionable call as well. That being said, both teams played an amazing game and as much as it sucks, Lone Peak got the victory. The great thing that both of these teams can take away from this game is that just when it looked like the game had been won by the other side, they never gave up. They had the heart and the drive to literally battle to the last second of the game, and in my mind, that is the true heart of a champion. This is why High School football is so amazing! Good luck to Lone Peak on the rest of your season, and good luck to MC who has a tough battle next week against a very good WX team.

    In the article by Mr. Hollis he says Mountain Crest had two touchdowns called back. This is incorrect. Only one TD was called back (the excellent punt return by Eddy Hall), the other one mentioned in the article was never a touchdown at all. The ball was caught nearly two yards out of bounds and was never ruled anything but an incomplete pass. The way it's stated in the article is very suspect and misleading, Mr Hollis needs to improve his accuracy.
