The Wasps, unafraid to take on all comers in its first season in Class 4A, went a step beyond that on Friday night and took on the Cavemen of American Fork High who are a member of Class 5A.
Wasatch lost the game handily to the host team, on its senior night, 58-7.
As in most games this season, the black and gold defense held its own for the first half, but eventually weakened as the game went on.
Offensive woes plagued Wasatch again as it could muster very few points and even fewer time consuming drives against the skilled Cavemen. The Wasp’s lone score was a 74-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Garrett Davis to senior receiver, Kayden Connor.
Wasatch was forced to throw most of the night playing catch-up ball which only gave the home team more time and opportunities to find the end zone. The usually effective Wasatch running game found little success in the loss.
Despite not qualifying for the post-season, Wasatch considers the campaign a good start finishing its first season in 4A with a 2-4 conference record and 4-6 overall.
