Fumbling perfection

"Pleasant Grove's Jeff Harris (No.26) rocks Timpview quarterback Trevor Brown (No.12) during the first quarter at Timpview High School, Friday, Aug. 21, 2009. Pleasant Grove won, 16-10, ending Timpview's 36-game win streak."

I was really, really rusty being my first football game of the season. Not to mention, the pressure was on. Pleasant Grove was hoping to end Timpview's 36-game win streak and dethrone the multiple repeat reigning 4A state champs.

Now, I'll admit, I didn't know much about either team, but assumed if Timpview had a three year winning streak, they wouldn't be beat.

Well, I did know a little. One thing learned was that these were two of the state's top programs, and it would be exhilarating to the end. Last year it came down to the last play of the game, but Timpview still came out on top.

This year, the game was close again, a sea-saw, back-and-forth battle.

But this time, unlike last years thriller, Pleasant Grove came out on top, 16-10, ending Timpview's state record 36-game win streak.

It literally came down to the last play of the game where Timpview's quarter back danced around in the backfield before being sacked. That's what great football games about about though: One team making one last big play.

Yet another big upset early in the Utah County sports season. Got to love it.
