Panthers spot Judge two TDs, then roll to 14-point win

SALT LAKE CITY – It’s not like the Panthers were feeling generous, but it sure seemed that way.

Pine View overcame two first-quarter miscues and a 13-0 deficit to defeat Judge Memorial 38-24 Friday night at in Salt Lake City.

“We had a bad snap that gave them the ball at the 15-yard line and they scored, then we snapped the ball over the punter’s head and gave it to them at the 1-yard line,” Panthers coach Ray Hosner said. “We were down 13-0 before we’d even had a chance to really play any offense or defense.”

Pine-view-smjudge-memorial-smBehind 411 passing yards from Kody Wilstead, Pine View battled back, outscoring the Bulldogs 38-11 the rest of the game, including 17-0 in the fourth quarter.

“We talked to the kids earlier this week and asked them if they were only going to be there when things were going good or if they were going to be fearless and be there when things are going bad,” Hosner said. “They assured me they were in it no matter what. I’m proud of the way they battled back.”

The Panthers were able to close to within 21-14 at halftime behind a 72-yard TD from Wilstead to Colton Miller and a short Tristan TD run.

But Judge held a 24-21 lead going into the final stanza. That’s when the Pine View offense really got it rolling.

Wilstead tossed two more TD scores, both to Jack Bangerter from 8 and 45 yards out. The senior wideout was Wilstead’s favorite target, grabbing 179 yards worth of passes.

“I wish you could have seen some the great grabs Jack made,” Hosner said. “All our receivers made some big plays. Colton Miller had about 150 yards receiving and my son, Bladen, had 68 yards.”

Pine View took a 28-24 lead on Bangerter’s second score and Ethan Baer hit a 22-yard field goal to make it 31-24.

Duran rushed for 90 yards and sealed the game with a 45-yard TD run with under three minutes to go.

Defensively, Kaden Creager and Justice Santiago stopped up the middle of the Judge option attack and senior defensive back Parker Ferris had a big interception.

    (Ethan Baer kick failed) NOT! You failed on the story.
    Ethan did not miss a single kick, I was there. If you do the math you see that your summary is wrong and 38 points if from 5 TD with 5 extra points good and one field goal. If he missed you couldn’t have 38 points. Please Fix This!

      OK, fixed it. We got the original line score from a coach — should have cross-referenced it.

        Still not quite fixed. 2nd Judge Memorial kick after the second tuchdown did fail but the 2pt conversion after their 3rd tuchdown was successful. Ethan Baer’s kick after the final tuchdown was good.

          What difference does it make!! That is, unless you some statistician savant with an OCD approach to every single detail of a game which is locked in your memory and ready to be told at stat parties. PV won, life goes on, somebody out there will have correct stats at the end of the season. Sheesh

            Zeke, it makes all the difference in the world to Ethan! If you had a perfect game would you want someone saying you missed 50%? Give the kid credit, he EARNED it!
