The Park City Miners are looking to improve to 2-0 for the second consecutive season. Following a convincing win over rival Wasatch High School, the 24th-ranked Miners will head to Orem tonight (Friday, Aug. 18) to face the Timpanogos Timberwolves.

Park City sent Timpanogos packing in round one of the UHSAA 5A Playoffs last season, so the also-undefeated Timberwolves may come out looking to land the first punch. Timpanogos made the quick trip up to Sandy and routed Jordan last week in a high-scoring contest.

The Miners will likely have to rely on the efforts of team stars Will McCurdy and David Dellenbach if they want to get the job done. This tandem turned in a superstar effort in the opener, with McCurdy rushing for four touchdowns and Dellenbach adding a school record 58-yard field goal. McCurdy is committed to suit up in the black-and-red for Davidson next fall, while Dellenbach, a top 10 kicker in the nation, still awaits a commitment. 

Timpanogos High is merely an hour drive for any Miners faithful looking to make the trip. Park City will return to Dozier Field on the 25th to take on Dixie High School, in what will mark the second of six home contests this season.
