North Sevier football finished their season Friday night in their playoff game in Milford 21-35. Senior Cauy Williams started the night off for the Wolves mid-way through the first quarter as he earned the first touchdown of the night off a 13-yard pass from Ryker Frischknecht. The Tigers, however, were able to score repeatedly as they answered back in the first quarter then were successful twice more in the second. Just a minute before the half, Williams again found the endzone for North Sevier off a 36-yard pass from Frischknecht. Early in the third Milford’s Blake Barnes gained points for the Tigers, but Nathan Snyder was able to connect for North Sevier on a 15-yard run. Milford again found success at the end of the fourth leaving the final score 21-35 in favor of the Tigers. Passing, Frischknecht went 4/9 for 40 yards, and Junior Kannin Boswell led the team in carries with 20 for 75 yards, with Snyder earning 88 yards with 14 carries. Freshman James Crowley had 2 carries for 14 yards, Frischknecht 7 for 41 and Breken Mason 4 for 23. Williams led the team with 4 receptions for 40 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Defensively Snyder racked up 10 tackles, Aaron Gale 8, Breken Mason 6, Deagan Brazell 5, Boswell 4, Williams and Guy Huntsman each 3, Blaine Anderson and Clayton Duckworth each 2, and Drexton Olsen, Dean Anderson, and Kyson Bosshardt each 1.

“Our team played very well considering some of the circumstances they had to face in the football game,” said Coach Wyatt Mason. “They never quit and that is something that they can always be proud of! The future is very bright for North Sevier football! These boys were able to secure a winning season; this has only been our 2nd winning season in 12 years. I want to wish all of our seniors good luck going forward in their lives and I know that our staff is going to miss them all very much! They have elevated our program and helped to create the groundwork for us to continue to build a successful program! Good luck to all the other sports going forward for the rest of this year! I’ll be cheering you on!”
