The Park City Miners football team rode into Price, played 48 minutes of football and left with a shutout of the Carbon High Dinos, 59-0.

Eight different Miners scored a touchdown for Park City as the momentum of the game quickly went to the side of the Miners. The Miners led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, with touchdowns coming by way of a 68-yard pass from Paul Flake to Juno Schettler and a 60-yard pass from Flake to Heath Vincent.

The Miners blew the game wide open in the second quarter as they put 26 points up on the board, with three more touchdowns and a safety. The scoring in the quarter started off with Flake reaching the end zone on a 1-yard run. Miners kicker Kennan Ward added a 37-yard field goal putting the Miners up 24-0. On a subsequent Dino drive the Miners got a safety, putting them up 26-0. The Miners added two more touchdowns before halftime with Blake Thorne scoring on a 36-yard run and a 50-yard pass from Flake to Schettler, putting the Miners up 40-0 at the half.

In the third quarter, Park City put up 13 more points as they scored touchdowns on a 52-yard run by Chad Wing and a 36-yard run by Chad Smith, putting the score at 53-0.

In the fourth quarter, Park City added one more touchdown as the Miners scored on a 6-yard pass from Heath Vincent to Collin Gardner, leading 59-0.

Park City had a strong performance by quarterback Paul Flake, who went 6-for-12 for 201 yards and three touchdowns. He also added one score on the ground. Blake Thorne ran for 114 yards and a touchdown while Chad Wing ran for 70 yards and a TD on only two carries for the Miners.

Carbon High Dinos coach Jeff Blanc said that Park City deserves a lot of credit for the win as they executed their plays well on both sides of the ball The Dinos offense was unable to put together a long drive throughout the game, gaining only around 50 yards of offense, according to Blanc.

"Offensively they just shut us down by plugging our running holes," said Blanc. "We won't see too many teams that are as good as Park City."

Defensively Blanc said the Dinos didn't tackle very well, enabling the Miners to make big plays.

Carbon High will play their next game at American Leadership Academy (ALA) on Oct. 8.
