OGDEN -- Region 11 took to the field early this week, and gridiron Thursday suits the Ben Lomond Scots just fine. The Scots bulled over the Tooele Buffs 15-0 on Thursday at McAllister Field.

Senior night for the Scots doubled as homecoming. Trey Brown, donning the homecoming crown, watched his Scots do something that has not been done in around a decade: win a homecoming football game.

Scots coach Don Kenyon showed a lot of emotion talking about his team's efforts.

"These boys played great. I am so happy for these kids and what this means for these great kids," Kenyon said.

Scots quarterback Alex Craft stole the show for most of the night, accounting for both Scots touchdowns. First, Craft found Robert Morales slashing down the middle of the field for a 36-yard touchdown pass.

In the fourth quarter, Craft powered in to the end zone from 2 yards out for the game's final score.

The Scots' defense, paced by Trevor Ross and the rest of the defensive line put the Scots on the board causing a safety and holding the Buffs offense in check not allowing a Tooele first down until the third quarter.
