PROVO – There was some firepower on offense in Provo Friday night.
Cedar couldn’t overcome Provo’s 21-point second quarter and couldn’t come back without allowing any more touchdowns.
Provo scored the first touchdown in the second quarter on a 13-yard pass from Spencer Jorgensen to Tevita Ika. The next two drives were quick touchdowns for the Bulldogs. Jorgensen connected with Ika again with a 64-yard touchdown. Then Jorgensen connected with Ty Jones for the third on a 68-yard touchdown pass.
Cedar then joined in on the scoring with a 50-yard touchdown pass from Mason Fakahua to Drake Lewis just before the half, but didn’t convert the two-point conversion, leaving the score at 21-6 at the half.
Cedar then came out of halftime with a long drive and a 9-yard run by Lewis capped the drive with a touchdown.
Provo answered with a drive of its own to keep the big lead with another pass from Jorgensen to Jones. Another touchdown by each team led to the 35-21 final.
Cedar will travel to Mesquite, Nev., to play Virgin Valley High School on Aug. 26. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
