The Park City Miners rolled to 5-0 last Friday in a 65-7 route of the winless Murray Spartans. The Miners were guided towards this quite comfortable win at Dozier Field by a high-scoring first-half performance, where they took a 51 point lead into half.

Park City will now look to duplicate this success against the much stiffer competition in the Stansbury Stallions. The Miners, who have been an excellent first-half team this season, are welcoming the Stallions in just two days.

Stansbury is riding high on a two-game winning streak of their own. This streak has propelled them to second place in the 4A Region 10 standings, where they sit behind just Park City due to their two non-region losses last month.

The Stallions will also look to rely heavily upon their rushing attack, which features star junior Tyson Ferry. Ferry has racked up 605 yards on the season, good for 10th in Utah and top-150 nationally. For comparison, Miners star senior Will McCurdy has 538 yards, which is 14th in the state and top-250 nationally, despite missing their fourth game and having no stats entered yet from their fifth and most recent game.

This game will kickoff under the lights of Dozier Field at the usual 7 p.m. time. Picturesque, fall weather is currently to be expected in Park City.
