“We just didn’t finish against Gunnison,” said GCHS senior Jacob Francis of the team’s first loss of the season. “But we played really well against Emery.”
Junior Koby Sobremesana scored three goals against Emery, while Francis, Austin Pyatt, and Sidney Shumway each added one goal for the Red Devils. Goalkeeper Layton Call picked up the shutout.
After building a 5-0 halftime lead, the Red Devils avoided running up the score in the second half so as to avoid invoking the mercy rule, Francis said.
“Coach [Mick Dunlavey] wanted us to play possession and practice in-game scenarios against a little slower team so we can get better against better teams,” Francis added.
This week, the Red Devils are scheduled to play two games: a home contest against Wasatch Academy at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25, and an away game vs. North Sevier on Thursday, March 27.
