Miners watch Eagles Soar after plethora of turnovers
The Park City High School football team is in a 0-2 hole to start off the 2010 season as seven turnovers proved to be its ultimate undoing against the Juan Diego Soaring Eagle in Draper, Utah. The Miners lost 41-21. Robert Cashel started the game with a highlight-reel run, bolting 68 yards through the Juan Diego defense to give Park City an early 7-0 lead. However, the Soaring Eagle ground game took advantage of Miner turnovers to 21 unanswered points. While the Miner offense was severely hindered by the seven turnovers, it showed its ability to make the big play. Park City scored its last two touchdowns on two passes of 59 and 21 yards, both hauled in by wide receiver Jono Schettler. Running back Heath Vincent threw a halfback pass for touchdown to Schettler. The Miners look to get in the win column this Friday as they host the 0-2 Delta Rabbits in the home-opener at Dozier Field at 7 p.m..
