OGDEN -- The 61st Iron Horse football game combined all the elements of a rivalry game. And while Ogden's 20-17 victory over Ben Lomond on Friday night at Moyes Field won't go down as the greatest in the storied history, both teams walked away with their heads held high.
The Tigers jumped out to a 13-0 lead, but had to withstand the Scots' final-quarter surges to hang on for the victory.
Josh Shackleford got Ogden off to the early lead with a 70-yard TD scamper. Eli Booth's PAT made it 17-0.
In the second quarter, Ogden QB Cameron Mortenson hooked up with Parker Lowry on an 18-yard TD pass for the 13-0 edge.
Just before halftime, the Scots go on the board with a short TD plunge by Damonte Dexter. Victor Galindo's PAT made it 13-7 at the breadk.
Mortenson and Smith again hooked up on a TD pass, this one from 30 yards out to give Ogden its last score.
But the Scots' Jamarhi Colbert plunged in from three yards out and Galindo's PAT drew the scored to 20-14. Galindo added an impressive 42-yard field goal to cut the lead to three.
Ben Lomond had a couple of chances to tie the game or take the lead, but came up short.
