BRIGHAM CITY -- What started out as a barn-burner turned one-sided as the game went on, but both host Box Elder and the rival Bear River Bears showed their firepower in the Bees' 55-21 Friday night football win.
Shad Watson ran for two touchdowns and passed for another as Box Elder crushed rival Bear River. Breckin Gunter added a receiving TD and rushing TD for the Bees and led the defense with a pair of interceptions and a fumble recovery.
Riley Burt ran for 103 yards and two TDs and Bryant Tingey added a late scoring jaunt.
The teams combined for 34 points in the first quarter, but Bear River was held to eight points after that. The game was temporarily halted due to lightning.
