Braves’ football season ends in South Sevier


After a big win over Parowan in the first round of the 2A playoffs last week, it looked like the North Summit High School football team was well on its way to a showdown against county rival South Summit in the semifinals.

The Braves hit the road to face South Sevier on Saturday afternoon in the quarterfinal round. North Summit had already defeated South Sevier during the regular season by a lopsided score of 47-17 in Coalville.

But, on the road and in the playoffs, it was a different story. Though the Braves’ defense again held South Sevier to 14 points, the North Summit offense was stagnant, scoring only six points in a 14-6 season-ending loss.

Alex Baker scored the first touchdown of the game for South Sevier, running into the end zone from three yards away to make it 7-0.

North Summit quarterback Ryan McMichael then added a three-yard touchdown run of his own, but a two-point conversion attempt failed, making the score 7-6 South Sevier after one quarter of play.

In the second quarter, South Sevier’s Avery Healey scored on a one-yard run to make it 14-6 heading to intermission. After the halftime break, both defenses held their opponent scoreless, sending South Sevier on to the 2A semifinals to play South Summit.

The Braves ended the season with an overall record of 8-3.
