ST. GEORGE — A play by the Pine View High School Panthers in its game against Juan Diego in the 3AA semifinals this week has been nominated by USA Today High School Sports as one of the top plays of the week in the nation. The Panthers pulled off  last-second heroics in the 3AA semifinals Thursday afternoon at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.

The Panthers would go on to win in overtime, 48-42, with the winning 14-yard toss to Colton Miller.

    The game WILL be on TV. It’s on KJZZ, and it starts at 6:30. Easier than going after an online stream.
