Top ranked South Summit demolishes Bulldogs 58-7
KAMAS, UT—The Gunnison Bulldogs met a likely doom in facing the unbeaten South Summit Wildcats, losing on the road, 58-7.
Surprisingly, the Bulldogs were the first to find the end zone when junior quarterback Kris Edwards connected with senior receiver Canyon Caldwell for a 22-yard touchdown in the first quarter.
After that, the Wildcats flipped the switch, and began in a downpour, amassing four touchdowns for 28 points by the end of the first quarter. To make matters worse, the latter two were scored in back-to-back interception returns by Wildcats defender Parker Grajek. Grajek also scored South Summit’s fifth touchdown in the second quarter, this time on offense, when he caught hold of a 23-yard pass from quarterback Nick Beasley.
Gunnison got nowhere for the rest of the night as the Wildcats scored another 16 points in the third before taking their foot off the gas in the fourth.
“I am pleased with how we came out ready to play,” Bulldogs’ head coach Jack Pay says, “but as we face adversity in the game we need to be able to overcome that adversity.”
Next up, Gunnison will travel to Spanish Fork next Friday to take on American Leadership Academy. Their next home game will be on Friday, Oct. 7 against Summit Academy.
