Desert Hills 48, Tooele 14
ST. GEORGE — The Thunder defense scores as many points as a lot of teams do with their offenses. Thursday night, DH did it again, with two defensive touchdowns and a blowout of 3AA North team Tooele. Nephi Sewell scored on a pick-six and Hunter Staley scooped up a fumble and raced to the end zone as Desert Hills broke open a relatively close 28-14 game at the half with 20 unanswered in the second half.
“The kids played hard tonight,” DH coach Carl Franke said. “They played really disciplined football and really took a step in the right direction. The defense played great.”
The Thunder 7-1 overall and 3-1 in region, return to 3AA South action next Wednesday with a battle against Snow Canyon at Thunder Stadium.
Tooele, which started the season 5-0, has lost three in a row.
Stats: DH 48, Tooele 14
