Ogden's 35-7 win over Stansbury on Friday improved the Tigers to 3-0 on the season for the first time since 1975, while Brighton continued their defensive dominance, blanking Hunter for their third consecutive shutout.

One of the highlights from Friday's games came when Northridge quarterback Travis Harper connected with receiver Colton Hill for a 1 yard touchdown pass with only 10 seconds left in their 29-26 come-from-behind win over Layton.

After scoring 113 points their first two games, Bear River couldn't get their offense moving against a tough Box Elder defense, losing to their rival 17-14.
