Global Gremlins roll to 56-0 win

Submitted by Jim Brown This past Saturday at the Ecker Hill fields, the Park City Gremlin Global Team, made up of nine-year-olds, played its best game of the year, beating Taylorsville by a score of 56-0. The success primarily was due to a tremendous tea

The offense set the tone with a long scoring run on the first play from scrimmage. The team scored on every possession of the game except the last. The defense also had its most dominant game by not allowing a first down throughout the game. Pressure from all positions led to Park City forcing seven turnovers by the Taylorsville backfield.

After losing its opening game, the team is now 3-1, heading into its highly-competitive Global League games with good momentum. With a few key first-year players at important positions, the team is really coming together and is looking forward to continuing its high level of play when it faces South Summit this coming Saturday in Oakley at noon.
