by Daniel Olsen | Homecoming is a magical time for many high school students, and that was certainly the case for the Maple Mountain High Football team.
The Golden Eagles started out with a quick lead and the score wasn’t really that close at any point during the game except for the opening minutes. The final score was 35-9 in a magical night in Spanish Fork, Utah.
If you had to give the game ball to anyone it would probably be split between three guys. The first guy would have to be the quarterback who threw four touchdown passes: Tyler Nelson. It doesn’t matter what level of competition it is. Anytime a high school QB can score that much for his team, it’s very impressive.
His two favorite targets also deserve part of the game ball. Thomas Weight and Cole McCallister each caught two touchdown passes respectively. Weight had the first two scores of the game in the first quarter. McCallister did his damage in the second quarter with the longest touchdown score of the night – a 31 yard catch. He also ended the game on a touchdown catch.
With the win, the Golden Eagles improve their season to 4-1 while the Spartans are still winless. Next week, Maple Mountain takes on Wasatch while Murray plays Skyline.
