Stallions hand Bears second loss
Leader Sports Writer
Bear River’s football team traveled to Stansbury last Friday to take on the Stallions. After an early defensive battle, Stansbury came to life and beat the Bears, 37-18. The loss drops the Bears to 2-2 this season and 0-1 in Region 11.
This week Ogden will play at Bear Field on Friday night. Ogden completely dismantled Ben Lomond’s football team last week, winning 54-0.
How good is an Ogden team that can beat an opponent by 54? Well, they are 1-3 on the season. Their three losses were against good teams at bigger schools. They only put up 21 points total in those three games while giving up 103 points.
In Stansbury, the Bears were penalized on the opening kick-off and gave the Stallions excellent field position. Stansbury scored quickly to take the 7-0 lead. The Bear River defense settled down after the first drive and didn’t allow much for the remainder of the first quarter.
Bear River’s offense struggled again, a week after being blanked by Box Elder. Even when they started to move the ball, the turnover bug bit them. The Bears lost two fumbles and threw two interceptions. Bear River had 313 yards of total offense, but gave up 493 yards.
After a Stansbury turnover, quarterback Kyle Zundel led the Bears on their first scoring drive of the night. Garret Fronk hauled in a 5-yard touchdown pass to put the Bears on the board. The point after was no good and the Bears trailed 7-6.
