Prep football: Grizzlies make mincemeat of Lakers

Sep 14 2012 - 11:10pm

WASHINGTON TERRACE -- Note to Bonneville athletic department: scheduling the state's most dangerous quarterback to come play on homecoming maybe isn't the best idea.

The advice comes on the heels of a 54-20 thrashing the Logan Grizzlies doled out to the Lakers on an otherwise lovely homecoming eve at Thomas Budge field on Friday night.

Luke Falk led the Grizzly offense with 395 passing yards and five touchdowns on a 20-of-30 performance.

"We had been hitting the short stuff early in our last few games and we were afraid they would tighten up on that so we tried the deep stuff early tonight and it got us off on the right foot," the 6-foot-4 senior quarterback said. "We have a lot of potential but we just have to keep working hard."

Falk completed nine of his first 10 passing attempts and looked untouchable early on. His favorite target, Hagen Anderson, hauled in four catches for 106 yards and a touchdown while wide outs Taylor Compton and Beau Artist each wound up with a pair of touchdowns from Falk on the night.

Logan's defense seemed shaky at first as Bonneville took the game's opening drive down to the Grizzly one yard line before stalling and having a field goal attempt blocked.

Bonneville QB Andrew Croyle rushed for 104 yards and was 11-of-17 for 102 passing yards.

Laker running back Colbie Bedford scored a pair of touchdowns and rushed for 37 yards on 16 carries as Bonneville had trouble keeping momentum or consistency offensively.

Four turnovers didn't help the Lakers either killing any chance they had of staying close to a Grizzly offense that seemed to score at will.

"Bonneville fought hard and did a great job," Logan coach Mike Favero said. "We played well most of the time. We had a few mistakes, but anytime you come out of a game with a win you've got to be happy about that."

* BOX ELDER 39, ROY 17: At Brigham City, the Royals and the Bees exchanged blows in a heated Region 5 opener, but it was Box Elder who had the last laugh, scoring 19 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to put away Roy.

Roy led 17-13 at the half and trailed 20-17 heading into the fourth quarter, but ran out of gas as a Kasen Flinders 37-yard run and a Tyler Thornton 47-yard interception return put the Bees ahead for good.

Flinders finished with three rushing scores and Breckin Gunter and Matt Williams added TDs of their own on the ground.

Roy got rushing TDs out of Logan Larose and Tyler Skidmore in its first loss of the season.

Flinders, subbing for a suspended player, ran for 94 yards, while Gunter finished with 99 on the ground.

Defensively, Gunter, Jake Brooks and Rasten Yeates had eight tackles a apiece, while Jake Tolman had seven tackles.

* MOUNTAIN CREST 44, SKY VIEW 24: At Hyrum, Jamison Webb fired two touchdowns to Faimafili Laulu-Pututau and the Mustangs lit up the visiting Bobcats to open Region 5 play.

Webb also hauled in a 28-yard TD pass thrown by Eddy Hall and ran for another, a 1-yard run in the second quarter.

* LAYTON 35, WEBER 14: At Layton, Hunter Evans did his part to help the Lancers earn their second win of the season, throwing for 256 yards and two touchdowns and rushing for another score to drop the Warriors.

Layton also got rushing TDs from Willie Uasilaa and Tyler Fox, while Uasilaa and Marcus Kemp each snagged scores through the air.

Zack Noyes rushed for a TD and threw for another -- a 43-yarder to Mitch Mourdaunt -- for the Warriors in the loss.
