GUNNISON—Last Friday night, the Gunnison Valley Bulldogs lost at home in a rivalry football game to the South Summit High School Wildcats, 15-48.

South Summit hails from Kamas with an undefeated record for this season so far—with this victory making them 6-0.

The Wildcats scored 35 points in the first quarter, setting them up for an early lead that they would ride like a wave for the duration of the game. The Bulldogs were unable to respond effectively, scoring zero points in the first three quarters.

South Summit expanded their lead in the third quarter with another six points on the board. The Bulldogs were able to muster up a small rally in the last quarter and score six points, but the Wildcats scored as well, tightening down an already sealed game with another seven points.

Gunnison Valley’s Bulldogs have played six games so far this season, three at home, and three away. All have ended in losses for the team.
