Pleasant Grove owned a 12-0 lead after the first quarter and took that lead into the break at halftime. In the third quarter, the Vikings added another touchdown to the scoreboard. Vikings quarterback Carson Rasmussen accounted for a pair of touchdowns, one through the air and another on the ground. Aiden Frantzen also had a rushing score for Pleasant Grove.

Fremont Silverwolves 20 @ No. 16 Mountain Ridge Sentinels 37

In the second quarter, the Sentinels took control of the game with three touchdowns. The Silverwolves outscored the Sentinels in the second half, 13-10. However, the big close to the first half was too much for Fremont to come back from. Mountain Ridge’s Wyatt Bingham threw three touchdown passes.

Riverton Silverwolves 0 @ No. 15 Syracuse Titans 38

The No. 15 Syracuse Titans shut out the Riverton Silverwolves to start the 2023 season. Syracuse started its scoring with a touchdown in the opening quarter.

Westlake Thunder 22 @ Weber Warriors 21 OT

The Westlake Thunder beat the Weber Warriors in an overtime thriller, 22-21, to start the high school football season. The two teams closed out regulation tied at 14-14. The Warriors opened overtime with possession and scored on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Crew Cacciacarne to Baylon Parker. However, the Thunder responded with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Derek Anderson to Mason Jenkins. Rather than attempt a potential game-tying extra-point kick, the Thunder opted to go for two. Anderson converted a game-winning two-point attempt with his legs and Westlake claimed victory on the road. Cacciacarne led the Warriors with three passing touchdowns. Anderson had two total touchdowns to lead the Thunder.

The Herriman Mustangs held off the Bountiful Redhawks for a season-opening victory, 35-23. After a scoreless opening quarter, both teams scored a touchdown in the second quarter. Following the halftime break, Herriman took control of the game with a big third quarter that featured three touchdowns. Bountiful added a touchdown in the third quarter and outscored Herriman by three points in the final quarter. However, the strong start to the second half by the Mustangs proved to be too much for the Redhawks to overcome. Mustangs quarterback Frederick Ta’ai tossed five touchdown passes.

No. 4 Timpview Thunderbirds 14 @ No. 2 Skyridge Falcons 26

The Skyridge Falcons shut down the Timpview Thunderbirds in the second half to capture a season-opening win. Skyridge led the game 10-7 at the end of the first quarter, Timpview responded by winning the second quarter, 7-3, and took a 14-13 lead into the halftime break.

No. 9 Alta Hawks 42 @ Layton Lancers 14

The Alta Hawks flew past the Layton Lancers to start the year with a 42-14 win. The Hawks jumped out to a 14-0 lead by halftime and didn’t look back. Alta scored four touchdowns over the final two quarters and cruised past the Lancers. Hawks quarterback Matt McKea accounted for four touchdowns.
