WOODS CROSS – The top two teams in the RMFL played as the marquee matchup in the SASA games at Woods Cross High School. The Wasatch Revolution dominated the game throughout, winning 42-0 Saturday over the Zion Lions.
The Rev racked up 35 points in the first half, the last touchdown coming with just 27 seconds left. The Lions offense could not get on track. Several turnovers led to good field position for Wasatch and one interception led to a Rev pick-six to give them a 28-0 lead.
“It was the perfect storm,” said Stott. “Not to take anything away from their team, but we just did not execute on offense. And much of that can be credited to their defensive game plan.”
The Rev only scored seven in the second half. “We switched up some things defensively,” said Stott. “They still were able to move the ball up and down the field, but we kept them from finishing their drives.”
The big Rev lead also changed what the Lions did offensively. “It is no secret we like to run the ball,” said Stott. “But when you are down five touchdowns, the running attack is not conducive to quickly coming from behind.”
Though the loss was lopsided, Stott said that did not presage a future meeting between the two teams in the playoffs. “We have things to work on,” he said. “This game showed us how much we need to improve before playoff time. We will be better prepared for them the next time we meet.”
The Rev take over first place with a 5-1 record. The Lions drop to 4-2 and in a tie for third with the Las Vegas Trojans. The Lions will travel next Saturday to take on the second-place Utah Shock. Game time is scheduled for 4 p.m.
