Grizzlies pummel Sky View

LOGAN — Riley Nelson threw six touchdowns and 345 yards as the Logan Grizzlies pummeled rival Sky View 59-0, holding the Bobcats to under 100 total yards, Friday.

The loss was the first of the season for Sky View.

Nelson threw his first touchdown just 1:18 into the game, a 59 yard bomb to Jeff Alley, and the Grizzlies never looked back. He now has 15 touchdown passes in three games this season.

He finished Friday's game completing 20 of 25 passes and he also ran for two more touchdowns on 65 yards. The only Logan score that he did not contribute to was Courtney Cano's 23 yard field goal in the fourth quarter.

The Bobcats struggled offensively throughout the game, accumulating only 99 total yards to the Grizzlies' 480. Quarterback Jace Hill went 6-for-12 with 81 yards, but the team only rushed for a total of 18 yards.

Logan forced five turnovers, two of which came on Sky View kick returns, and scored 31 points as a result.

Sky View's only threat to score came midway through the second quarter when, trailing 21-0, they had third-and-goal from Logan's one yard line. But quarterback Jace Hill mishandled the snap for a one-yard loss and then Colton Peterson was tackled on the two-yard line on fourth down to give the ball back to the Grizzlies.

Logan would then drive 98 yards in 3:12 seconds and score on a 24 yard touchdown pass from Nelson to Kyle Dragnich, making the score 28-0.

Alley and Dragnich both caught two touchdown passes and Josh Flores and Taylor Palmer had one.

The Grizzlies average starting field position was the Bobcats' 47 yard line, while Sky View's was its own 25.

Logan's only punt came on its final possession of the game.

Logan improved its record to 3-0 and will play in Alta next Friday.

Sky View dropped to 2-1 and will play at Woods Cross next week.
