PROVO, Utah – The fourth-ranked Lone Peak Knights had a tremendous performance that was carried by their defense. They traveled to Timpview and pulled off a 24-0 win over the No. 5 Thunderbirds.
The duo was ranked in the top five of the KSLSports.com top 20 ranking. It was the Game Night Live Game of the Week.

The Knights were able to get a field goal just before the halftime break with a 10-0 lead.
Timpview fumbled the ball to start the second half but Lone Peak couldn’t convert. On the following possession, the Thunderbirds turned the ball over again and this time the Knights capitalized with a one-yard rushing touchdown from Tahi to take a 17-0 lead midway through the third quarter.
Timpview had a chance to get on the scoreboard when highly-touted recruit Logan Fano intercepted the ball and returned it for a touchdown but the TD was called back but the interception remained. But, that drive didn’t turn into any points.
Tahi put the game away in the fourth quarter with a three-yard touchdown from Tahi. That gave the Knights a 24-0 lead.
