The Vikings Tony McFarland fights for the ball during a recent game with the Carbon High sophomore team in Price.

Last Friday afternoon the East Carbon boys basketball team had to travel a very long way south to meet the Moquis' of Escalante.

That evening their game went even farther south.

The Moquis, who have only faced 2A teams this year, except for East Carbon, dominated the court and 11 of their players scored as they downed the East Carbon kids 91-37.

It was one of those nights when one team seems to do everything right and another can't seem to get a break.

It started auspiciously for the boys from eastern Utah as the team from Garfield County jumped all over them from the beginning. At the end of the first quarter the score was 14 to seven.

The second period brought only worse things. The Skakespear brothers of Escalante (Shane, David and Dell) all scored and by half time East Carbon trailed 41-18.

After half time, the Moquis kept up the onslaught. In both quarters they scored 25 points per period and the Vikings were only able to manage 19 points total for the half.

The high scorer for the Vikings was Austin Preston with nine points. Tony McFarland and Josh Griffiths each scored eight a piece. Escalante was lead in scoring by Shane Shakespear with 17. Brothers Del and David scored 12 and 7 points respectively.

East Carbon is 0-5 in the preseason, but still has time to put it all together since they don't start league play until Jan. 10 when they travel to West Desert.

Their final game of the preseason was played Wednesday night after press time against Waterford.
