Prep football: Trojans rough up host Scots

Oct 8 2010 - 11:43pm

OGDEN -- You can sum up Morgan High's performance Friday night against Ben Lomond in just two words: complete dominance. There was no stopping the Trojans who rolled to a lopsided 55-7 victory at Ben Lomond's McAllister Field.

Offensively the Trojans racked up an impressive 462 total yards while picking up 25 first downs, and they scored on all but one offensive possession. If that weren't enough, defensively they limited the Scots to 204 total yards.

"I was really proud of our performance tonight," said Morgan coach Kovi Christiansen. "Our offensive line did a real good job tonight. It helped that we got back our center (Landon Loucks) who's been out for four or five weeks."

Loucks was instrumental in creating holes for the Morgan backfield that rushed for 339 yards. The Trojans' depth in the running game was evident all night long. In all, 15 players had at least one carry with Lawson Toomer leading the way with a game-high 92 yards rushing and a touchdown run of three yards that gave the Trojans a comfortable 21-7 lead on the first play of the second period.

Randon Prochnow had a pair of TD runs from the 34 and 3, and hauled in a 69 yard scoring strike from Colby Skinner. Lantzen Toomer scored on an 8-yard run to start the second half scoring for the Trojans, and closed the scoring with an impressive 105-yard interception return late in the fourth quarter.

Also getting into the scoring act for the Trojans were Chase Peterson who was on the receiving end of a 14-yard TD pass from Skinner, and sophomore running back Bridger Anderson who scored on a fourth-quarter 17-yard romp.

Ben Lomond's lone touchdown came on its first possession of the game when Malcolm Shipmon broke loose for a 55-yard score on a pass from Jacob Werito. The TD tied the game at 7-7 just three minutes into the game.

* JUAN DIEGO 28, BEAR RIVER 7: At Draper, the Bears took an early 7-0 lead when Tayton Rose connected with AJ Sanchez for a 17-yard touchdown, but the Soaring Eagle cruised the rest of the way, clinching the Region 11 championship.

Juan Diego quarterback Nathan Elorreaga threw a touchdown strike to Oliver Weight, Cayden Sanchez made the Bears pay with a 97-yard interception return for paydirt and Cody Berg scored on a 1-yard run.
