NEPHI — The Cedar Redmen will return home from Nephi with a 2-2 record after knocking off previously undefeated Juab 21-20 in a defensive battle Friday night.
Juab scored first when Shawn Nielsen found the end zone on a 10-yard rush. Cedar got a hand on the PAT, though, and left it only 6-0.
Cedar then scored 21 points unanswered, including a 98-yard touchdown pass from Mason Fakahua to Bracken Yardley. Cedar’s Travis Tait and Jade Bulloch also had a rushing touchdown each in that stretch.
Juab’s receiver/quarterback Tyse Ostler then found Payton Bowring for a touchdown and quarterback Ryker Osborne threw for the two-point conversion to put the score 21-14 at the half.
After halftime, Bowring scored on a run, but a missed extra point left the score at 21-20 for Cedar. That’s how it would stay the remainder of the game.
Cedar, 2-2, begins 3AA South Region play next Friday with a road trip to old rival Dixie (3-1). Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Walt Brooks Stadium.
