The East (Salt Lake City, UT) varsity football team lost Friday's home non-conference game against IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL) by a score of 43-19.
The #28 East Leopards come into this game at 8-1 and #2 in Utah 6A. They have won 31 of their 32 games and two consecutive 4A State Titles.
The #2 IMG Academy Ascenders come into this game at 5-0 and the #1 Independent Florida Team. They have won 33 consecutive games.
This should be a very entertaining game between two dominat teams separated by over 2,300 miles!
The location tonight is East High School of Salt Lake City. We are just south of the University of Utah campus.
Both teams want to pound the football. East had trouble at first but found it on that drive. IMG did block their PAT attempt.
East gets a huge stop on defense after IMG scored on their first offensive play. The Leopards get the ball back down one point.
East looked in trouble at first but have rebounded very well. They will not let IMG walk away with an easy win tonight.
Every time East looks stuck they rip off a huge play. That has been IMG's biggest flaw so far.
East's first pass catches IMG way off guard it goes from 50 yards and sets up the Leopards inside the Ascenders 5 yard line.
East definitely needs a stop on this drive to hang around and keep their upset bid alive.
East gets a huge break as IMG losses the ball on a bad exchange between the Quarterback and the Running Back.
East finds themselves now down 17 points and the game slipping away from them.
The #2 IMG Academy Ascenders improve to 6-0 on the season and win their 34th straight game.
The #28 East Leopards drop to 8-2 on the season and prepare for the Utah 6A Football Playoffs which begin next Friday.
I'm a Bingham Miner but I'm rooting for East this time! Good luck!
Im from woods cross lets goo IMG my cousin plays for them
Let's go leopards
Going to be a close game of it keeps going like this
IMG is at somewhat of a disadvantage. They're coming from the low elevation of Florida to the high Wasatch. That'll effect their abilities
IMG is like a small college. They recruit from all over the US. Just looking at the picture of the field posted made me cold! Go IMG!
I agree with that last comment the weather will mess with them. Flordia is so different from utah
Can’t give the number 1 team in the nation any excuses
Unless either East or IMG makes several big consecutive plays, this will be a really close game.
Go East! I am a Bingham Miner but am cheering on our Utah East Team!
too bad we cant watch the game in Florida. Looks like another good game.
S/o to my East bruhs
East needs to attempt a 2 point conversion if they are to get a TD. Narrow the lead!
Come on East, make some big plays! Bingham is cheering you on ;)
IMG aint no team to play with.
At this point with 6 minutes left, IMG will take the win
