:00 Fourth Quarter
Hurricane 24, Park City 19

Highlights from this game should be posted sometime between 2:30 and 3:00. Just a few notes to wrap up this game. I think Park City may look back at this game and wonder what would have happened in this game had they attempted field goals on their trips to the red zone that came up empty in the 2nd half. Ultimately, you have to give the Hurricane defense a lot of credit for stopping a team with a running back who averages 13 yards a carry. The Tigers were able to overcome 5 fumbles, 3 of them lost, to reach a 2nd straight 3A championship game. They will get their chance for revenge, something the players talked about after the game.

Also, who would have thought that Jarom Healy would outgain Dylan Chynoweth. It happened. Chynoweth finished with 137 yards and 1 TD and averaged 5.7 yards a carry. Healy rushed for 147 yards and 2 TD's while averaging 5.8 per carry.

on 3rd and 10 Walker threw a pass that found the fingertips of a Hurricane defender but the receiver made a nice play to come back and knock down the ball.

The Hurricane run game is rolling on this drive. A personal foul call on Park City has helped the Miners cause. It's first and 10 tigers at the Miners 24 yard line.

5:03 Fourth Quarter
Hurricane 21, Park City 19

You can't help but wonder what would have happened if Park City had tried to kick field goals on their trips into the red zone in the 2nd half. This game would be much different.

5:55 Fourth Quarter
Hurricane 21, Park City 19

Park City has just made this interesting. Erik Walker completed a 17 yard pass to Brian Schettler who fought his way into the end zone. The Miners are within two points with plenty of time. Too early for the onside kick but they kick the ball out of bounds and Hurricane starts at their own 35 yard line.

Park City passed on 1st and 2nd down with no luck. So on 3rd down they go with the reverse and Brian Schettler gets the 1st down for 18 yards. A nice run by Erik Walker after that has Park City in the red zone.

12:00 Fourth Quarter
Hurricane 21, Park City 12

Great question Mr. Football. They have made a couple questionable decisions. Going for it earlier in the game on 4th and 2 in their own territory was a strange call too.

:00 Third Quarter

Another Tiger Turnover! Park City forces a fumble and has great field position once again. They will face a 3rd and 8 at the Tigers 20 yard line when the 4th quarter begins.

Hurricane 21, Park City 12

On 3rd and 13 Hurricane running back Jarom Healy picked up 12 yards. Then on 4th and 1, the Tigers make the gutsy decision to go for it in their own 25 yard line. Healy made his coaches look smart by grinding for a 1st down on a 2 yard carry.

Park City quarterback Erik Walker should throw the ball more. He just completed an 18 yard pass to Dillon Olsen for a 1st down. Dylan Chynoweth just picked up a 1st down at the 17 yard line which led to a nice collision. Alphonso Thompson #10 was shaken up on the play.

6:41 Third Quarter

Hurricane 21, Park City 12

Hurricane 21, Park City 12

Here are some interesting halftime stats:

PC running back Dylan Chynoweth already has a 100 yard rushing game, 15 carries for 110 yards and a TD. Chynoweth has rushed for atleast 100 yards in 12 of 13 games this season. Juan Diego is the only team to hold him under 100 (52). He has also had 4 200 yard games and has scored atleast 1 touchdown in all 13 games this season. Very impressive.

Jarom Healy leads Hurricane with 8 carries for 70 yards and 2 TD's.

Hurricane has scored 21 points without completing a single pass.

The Tigers are 3 for 4 on 3rd down. Park City is 3 of 7. Hurricane is also 3 for 3 in the red zone.

4:52 Second Quarter
Hurricane 21, Park City 12

Park City starts their drive at the 25 yard line. This is a very important possession for the Miners. Hurricane gets the ball first to start the 2nd half so not scoring here could allow Hurricane to take control of this game. If Park City can score a touchdown we have a 1 or 2 point game going into halftime.

4:52 Second Quarter
Hurricane 21, Park City 12

A big 29 yard run by Jarom Healy set up a 1 yard run by...Jarom Healy. He has 70 yards rushing and 2 scores and the Tigers have scored 21 unanswered points.

5:34 Second Quarter
Hurricane 14, Park City 12

After giving up 12 points to start the game, the Tigers defense has really tightened up. They just forced a three and out but Park City took a risk and went for it on 4th and 2. Mat Christensen took the pitch but was stuffed for a 1 yard loss. Hurricane has the ball on the Miners 39 yard line. Seems a little early to go for it on 4th down in your own territory.

9:15 Second Quarter
Hurricane 14, Park City 12

Hurricane quarterback Tim Long was under pressure and threw the ball at the feet of two of his lineman. There was no flag thrown on the play to the dismay of the Miners coaching staff. It would have been a 5 yard penalty and a loss of down making it 4th down. Instead, Jacob Pugh took the handoff on a counter on 3rd and 6 and scored a 14 yard touchdown. The Tigers have taken the lead.

They went for two this time but failed.

Park City 6, Hurricane 0

Those who follow Park City know how good Dylan Chynoweth has been this season. He has rushed for more than 2,000 yards and 33 touchdowns this season averaging more than 13 yards a carry. He is off to a great start today. He already has 57 yards on 3 carries. Mat Christensen finished off the drive with a 6 yard touchdown giving the Miners an early lead.

Welcome to Day two of our coverage of the 3A Semifinals. Juan Diego is back in the state championship to defend their title and today we find out who their challenger will be. I love this matchup. These two evenly matched teams who run the wing T offense to perfection. Park City averages 47 points a game while Hurricane averages 36. Defensively both teams are tough as nails. Both teams play gritty smashmouth football. I think this is going to be our first nailbiter of the semifinals. We'll see if that turns out to be the case.
