– There was still some great action last week that ended the season on a high note:
– Park City Varsity looked to finish undefeated (in-state) Friday night for the first time in school history against a school they had not beaten since 2005. In the end the Dozier Field scoreboard read PC 13 Brighton 10. In a game that went back and forth for 3 quarters, the Miners finally put away Brighton in the 4th quarter on the back of Freshman Beau Pederson. Pederson (4g 1a) scored 3 of his 4 goals in the final quarter to help put PC up by 5 with 3 minutes to go before Brighton made a late little run to close the gap. The Brighton defense shut-off PC’s leading scorer Kolton Atkinson with one of the top defenders in the state (Bryson Taylor) so the Miners had to find scoring from some unlikely sources and some old reliables. Cole Flinders (2g 1a), Trent Clifford (2g), JJ Pickard (2g), Tucker Mirams (1g 2a), Rhino Smith (1g 1a), and Chad Merrick (1g) all recorded points on the night. Jackson Burton had another 70%+ winning percentage facing-off (18 for 25). Ian Sime stood strong between the pipes making 11 saves. While the defense had a few breakdowns against the fast paced Brighton attack, Chase Flinders, Tobin Greenwald, Jeff Turner, and Josh Hales turned in strong performances when it counted to seal the win. PC finished the regular season 18-1 (12-0 in-state) and secured the #1 seed for the Class A playoffs that begin this Wednesday.
