9-8-15 Sports Jam
On Friday, the Sand Devil football team traveled to Kayenta to take on the Monument Valley Mustangs.
Page struck early, with Randall Holgate connecting with Christian White on an 82 yard touchdown pass on the Sand Devils second play of the game. Holgate would add two more first half touchdowns and Page took a 20-13 lead into the half.
The rain rolled in the second half and the Mustangs took advantage of Page’s miscues with the wet ball, putting up 21 unanswered points to take a 34-20 lead with just over 5 minutes left in the game.
The Sand Devils mounted a comeback behind a 90 yard touchdown pass from Holgate, his fourth of the day, followed by a successful onside kick and 1 yard touchdown run by Peter Corbell. However, Page was unable to convert the 2 pt conversion after the Corbell touchdown run and the Sand Devils would drop the game 34-32.
Coach Jeff Wheatly said after the game he was proud of the way his boys battled until the final whistle.
The Sand Devils are 1-2 on the year and are on a bye this week, returning to action Friday, September 18th when they travel to Fountain Hills.
