Freshmen football

The Freshman football team is starting to pull it together as they begin playing in Region. They went 1-5 in their first 6 games, but that doesn't matter to them right now. All they care about is winning Region. Judge Memorial is in Region 10 which includes Park City, Wasatch, Union, and Uintah. Thursday, October 4, 2007, the freshman played Wasatch for their second region game. After defeating Park City the week before, the team lost to Wasatch 13-6.

Last Thursday the freshman team went up to Park City to play their first Region 10 game. Park City was a very good team, quick, strong, big, but that didn't mean anything. The freshman just wanted to beat Park City, even if it has to go down to the last second. Judge put points on the board first near the end of the first quarter.

Even though the Judge lost the second quarter, allowing Park City a touchdown, no extra point, they fought and fought 'til the final whistle blew. Judge scored the first touchdown of the second half, then allowed Park City to answer their score. After Isaac Haas scored the next touchdown, Riley Harper kicked it in for the extra point, leading Judge into the fourth quarter 16-12. Park City's next possession was succesful most of the way. They managed to score a touchdown, but couldn't convert extra point. Judge got the ball and worked it up the field in the minute-thirty they had left.

With ten seconds left Riley Harper set up for a 37-yard field goal. The play was about the begin, but Park City called a time out. Riley set up for a second time, this time the ball was snapped, and before you knew it, the ball went straight through the uprights! Judge was now in the lead 19-18 with about 5 seconds left. The next kickoff Judge stuffed Park City and Judge had won their first region game.
