By Jeremy Jones
Running back Riley Burt ran for 130 yards and three touchdowns, and quarterback Connor Udy ran for 91 yards and four touchdowns as the Bees won their homecoming game in a shootout over Weber last Friday night 48-38.
The game featured contrasting offensive styles as the Warriors took to the air while the Bees primarily pounded the ball on the ground. Each team found success, and the end zone, often while playing to their strengths.
The Warriors racked up 321 yards and four touchdowns through the air while the Bees tallied 345 yards and all seven of their touchdowns on the ground.
After slow starts, volleyball team finds stride to sweep Logan, Roy
By Jeremy Jones
The Box Elder girls’ volleyball team came up with two dominant performances last week with wins over Logan and Roy. The Bees swept both matches, 3-0.
Slow starts plagued the Bees in both matches. Against Logan, after trailing for much of the first set, the Bees started to hit their stride late and were able to steal game 1, 26-24.
That momentum carried into the last two games and the Bees cruised to victories 25-10, 25-10.
The match against Roy started very similarly. The Bees were sluggish to start and Roy took an early lead at 15-10.
After a timeout, the Bees battled back behind strong blocking at the net and improved overall team play. The Bees also found the range serving the ball as they came up with a season-high 16 service aces on the night as a team.
