PARK CITY — Park City's second overtime victory of the season turned out to be a huge upset.

The fifth-ranked Miners pulled off a stunning 36-35 overtime victory over top-ranked Logan Friday night, which was made possible by a gutsy two-point conversion attempt in overtime.

After Logan forced overtime with a touchdown in the final 13 seconds, the Grizzlies had possession first in overtime and went ahead 35-28 on a Josh Flores 11-yard touchdown run.

Park City answered with a Jared Tew five-yard scamper, but instead of kicking the extra point and sending the game into double overtime, the Miners went for the victory — and it paid off. Andy Byers connected with Lucas Tucker on the two-point coversion as Park City improved to 2-0 on their new turf.

Tew finished with 160 rushing yards and four touchdowns, giving him nine total touchdowns on the season.

After Logan jumped out to a 7-0 lead, Park City scored 28 unanswered points and appeared comfortably ahead. The defending 3A champion Grizzlies responded with three short touchdowns runs, two by Chaz Housley and one by Flores to ultimately force overtime.
