With a chance for a new state record for consecutive wins on the line, the Duchesne Eagles did exactly what they've done in recent memory: Win.

After racking up three straight 1A state championship throughout a 36-game win streak dating back to Sept. 2010, the Eagles added another note in the record books with a 35-0 win over 3A Carbon High on Friday night.

The Eagles are now the current record holders for having the longest win streak in all of Utah high school football with 37 straight wins, breaking Timpview High's record of 36 wins in a row from 2006-09.

For the Carbon High Dinos, a chance to make some noise in the state with plenty of media from all over the state watching was quickly extinguished as Duchesne ran out to a 35-0 lead before halftime as they ran out the clock in the second half en route to the record-setting win.

"They (Duchesne) didn't make mistakes in the game and they took advantage of our mistakes which really hurt us," said Carbon High head coach Jeff Blanc after the game.

Blanc said the Dinos may have still had a sour taste left in their mouths after losing to ALA last week 28-14. The game included a 14-point swing on two Carbon turnovers in the final two minutes of the second quarter, which proved to be the game's deciding factor.

In Carbon's only trip to the red zone in the game during the second quarter, they fumbled the ball which Duchesne recovered.

With a record on the line, Duchesne wasted little time as they scored 21 points in the third quarter, on passes of 20 and 62 yards and a run of 28 yards to take an early lead.

Duchesne quarterback Trent Roberts finished a perfect 6 for 6 with 144 yards and two touchdowns.

Zac Hathaway, who filled in at quarterback for the second straight week with junior Jarod Lessar possibly out for the season with a knee injury, went 4 for 9 for 36 yards and one touchdown.

Carbon running back led the Dinos rushing attack with 70 yards on 13 carries.

Blanc said that Carbon High players can learn a lot from their game with Duchesne.

"My hats off to Duchesne because they are a good football team," said Blanc. "They've got tradition, the players play hard and they have a commitment level that is very strong."

Carbon will look to turn things around as they travel to take on North Sanpete on Friday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m.
