PRICE — After knocking on the door a few times this season, Ogden’s 36-game losing streak is over.

The Tigers (1-3) used two goal-line stands and shut down an attempted two-point conversion to hold off Carbon for a 28-19 victory in Price.

Irving Gastelum returned a kickoff 81 yards for a touchdown, and scored on two Nick Freeman passes of 50 and 90 yards. Sam Lawrence also took a pass from Freeman 51 yards to paydirt.

But it was Lawrence’s interception on Carbon’s fourth-and-goal from the 16 late in the fourth quarter that sealed the victory, allowing Ogden to run out the clock.

Lawrence’s pick came after Ogden stripped the ball from a Carbon ball-carrier as he dove for the pylon on third down; the ball went out of bounds.

The 90-yard Freeman-to-Gastelum touchdown pass came one play after an Ogden interception halted what looked to be a sure Carbon scoring drive that would have given the Dinos the lead.

Freeman, who took over at quarterback after Carson White suffered a knee injury last week, passed for 238 yards and three touchdowns, and also ran for 105 yards on seven carries.

After the game, coach Erik Thompson said Ogden fans joined the team on the field to sing the Ogden High fight song and celebrate what they hope is the beginning of a new streak.
