Kearns Football made it to the 6A First round finals this season. Playing the Pleasant Grove vikings at home on October 27, 2017. Despite a solid 9-2 season record, the Cougars couldn’t beat the Vikings with a meager 4-7 record. The loss of 35-31 at home, was a bitter pill. Knocking Kearns out of the 6A football finals.
It’s not all bad news for the Cougars. Issac Matua has an offer from BYU to continue is football career as a Cougar. Kearns Twitter account @Kearns_Football touted the good news: “Congrats Isaac Matua
@isaacmatua on your offer to BYU! Great athlete but better person. #Ktownfootball” Offering the Cougars a much deserved win. Not in the championships, but for the future of one of it’s players.
It was a great game. With a first quarter lead of 14-0 by the Cougars, it seemed the 6A Finals were clinched. An impressive rushing game, totaling 376 yards didn’t translate to points. Converting 3rd downs 50% of the time. It was passing yards that closed the gap and cinched the game by the Vikings.
The Vikings threw 2 impressive fourth quarter passes. An 80 yards touch down pass and a 67 yard touch down pass. The Cougars posted 486 yards total, to the Vikings’ 341 yards. The Vikings luck didn’t hold. They ended the season, losing in the quarter finals.
Congratulations on an impressive season, Kearns Football. We’re proud of you. We’re looking forward to seeing Issac Matua on BYU’s field in the coming seasons.
