The volleyball team traveled to St. George, Utah, Sept. 26 where the girls lost to Pine View High school in straight sets: 25 to 21, 25 to 20 and 25 to 15.

Ember Sloan had 14 kills, and Braedyn Boldin six. Kyla Yazzie had 26 assists and Hannah Larson five blocks.


The golfers placed sixth out of 12 teams in the Bradshaw Mountain tournament.

Andrew Keisling posted his second state qualifying score (a 39 on the front nine) and now needs three more to make it to the state tournament.

Lindsay Wood needed a 39 to qualify and scored a 40. She only needs one more qualifying round to make it to state.

The Devils have six more matches.

The Page High football team took a step backward Sept. 28, losing 49-13 at home to Williams.

After enduring a pair of not-unexpected blow-out losses to open the season — they lost to prime competition— the Sand Devils made progress in winning the next two games, including a blow-out of their own. Last week, in their homecoming game, the Devils played undefeated Monument Valley evenly throughout the game, but failed to score in the second half in a 20-14 loss.

Against Williams, however, Page fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter. The Vikings scored touchdowns on a 43-yard screen pass and, just a few minutes later, a 38-yard interception return.

The Sand Devils, whose record fell to 2-4, came back with a touchdown of their own on the first play of the second quarter. Nick Acothley capped off a eight-play, 74-yard drive with an 11-yard touchdown run. Key plays in the drive were a 43-yard run by Wesley Ball and a 22-yard pass from Drew Wilson to Jason Moore on a fourth down and six from the Williams 31-yard line.

But the Vikings struck back quickly, needing just three plays to go 68 yards — the final 55 on a swing pass that opened up down the left sideline — and take a 21-6 lead with 7:39 left in the first half. They added another touchdown on a 12-yard run.

Page made its last move on the subsequent kick-off. Moore fielded the ball in the center of the field around the 15-yard line, sprinted to the right sideline, got the corner and easily outran everyone to the end zone. The extra point made the score 28-13, which is how the first half ended.

The teams exchanged punts through most of the third quarter. With about four minutes left in the quarter, Page punted to the Williams 31. The Vikings connected on a 36-yard pass on their first play from scrimmage, then five plays later scored on a 15-yard pass into the end zone that the receiver caught amid four Sand Devils defenders.

The touchdown boosted Williams’ lead to 35-13, and they added two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
