Bad field position dooms Bees in loss
Ty Palmer (No. 38) and Bryant Tingey (No. 30) combine hits to force a fumble that ended a Sky View drive in the red zone, but gave the Bees poor field position, which they struggled with in the second half.

Isaac Hermann carried the ball 21 times for 172 yards and three touchdowns and Garrison Beach completed 25-of-30 passes for 255 yards and one touchdown as the Sky View Bobcats stayed perfect in region play with a 35-19 win over Box Elder last Friday night in Brigham City.
The Bees were lead offensively by Riley Burt who had 72 yards on 18 carries. Quarterback Connor Udy completed 8-of-14 passes for 114 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Udy also rushed 16 times for 59 yards and two touchdowns.
Box Elder forced two key turnovers earlier in the game, but could not capitalize with good position.
“Field position, all night, did not favor us, ever,” said Box Elder head coach Robbie Gunter. “Especially in the second half, we never really got field position and so we had to battle that. Even when we got a turnover or a punt, we were still so far down in the hole that it’s a battle to get out.”
Bees dominate Roy, win five set thriller against MC
By Jeremy Jones
Last week, the Box Elder High School volleyball team took a couple of big steps towards securing a spot in the state tournament with wins over Roy, Tuesday, and Mountain Crest, Thursday.
In the Roy match, the Bees took care of business with a straight-set victory over the Royals for the second time this season.
The Bees were plagued by a bit of a slow start before gaining some momentum to win the first set, 25-17, and they never looked back, cruising to wins in the next two sets 25-12 and 25-12.
The Bees were lead offensively by Annie Thurgood with nine kills. Casey Quayle contributed six kills and Jessica Ormsby had five.
Against Mountain Crest, the Bees looked focused early in the first game and jumped out to a 5-1 lead. But hitting errors from the Bees got the Mustangs back into the game to tie it at nine.
The teams traded points for much of the rest of the game until the Bees went on a run to push their lead to 21-17.
