Skyridge Tops American Fork To Remain Undefeated

Sep 21, 2019, 12:17 AM

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – It was a game of firsts at American Fork High School Friday night. The first game on American Fork’s new turf field, the first game between the American Fork Cavemen (3-3, 0-1) and Skyridge Falcons (6-0, 1-0), and the first region four matchup of the year.

American Fork would score first on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Maddox Madsen to Devin Downing, but the Falcons kept pace. On the next drive for Skyridge, Emmett Call found Elijah Crockett for a touchdown to even the score.

In the second quarter, Skyridge pulled away scoring 17 unanswered points to take a 24-14 lead at halftime.

American Fork received the ball to start the second half and marched down field, but the drive came to an end after a Madsen pass was intercepted by Tanner Shelton. Skyridge took advantage of the momentum swing with Call calling his own number for a 23-yard touchdown run.

American Fork scored 20 fourth quarter points, but ultimately couldn’t overcome the deficit falling 45-34.

Call threw for two touchdowns and ran for another pair in the victory while American Fork’s Madsen threw three touchdowns in the loss.

Skyridge hosts Pleasant Grove (5-1, 0-1) next week while American Fork hits the road to face Westlake (1-5, 0-1).
