Tooele falls to Sky View

The Tooele football team came in well-rested after playing just over a quarter in its season-opening game against Uintah before lightning brought that contest to a halt.

However, it didn’t seem to matter Friday night on the road against Sky View, one of the top teams in Class 4A. The host Bobcats built a 35-0 first-half lead and rolled to a 38-14 win over the Buffaloes, their second win over a Tooele County squad in as many weeks.

Sky View (2-0) scored 21 points in a span of just 2:14 midway through the first quarter to take control of the contest. The Bobcats’ explosion began with a 20-yard touchdown pass from Tate Ballard to Jacob Zollinger with 6:36 to go in the opening quarter, and was followed just 32 seconds later by a 6-yard TD run by Josh Aller. Tanner Stokes added a 2-yard scoring run with 4:22 left in the first quarter.

Kason Carlsen and Stokes each had 1-yard TD runs in the second quarter to extend the Bobcats’ advantage. Tooele (1-1) finally broke through with 6:43 left in the third quarter on a 75-yard touchdown pass from Kulani Iongi to Conway Hogan.

Kason Erickson booted a 32-yard field goal for Sky View early in the third quarter, and Tooele capped the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Iongi to Austin Meono with 4:38 left in the game.

Tooele’s final statistics were not available at press time Tuesday. 

The schedule doesn’t get any easier for Tooele in Week 3. The Buffaloes will face a long bus ride to St. George before Friday’s game against Dixie, one of the premier Class 4A programs in southern Utah.
