Oct. 27 - East 27, Herriman 16

Story of the game - Ula Tulutau rushed for 178 yards and Preston
Curtis returned a kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown to lift East past
Herriman in the first round of the 4A state playoffs.

Herriman's highlights - The Mustangs drew a big crowd and got
them all excited by holding East scoreless in the first quarter and
then QB Tueni Lupeamanu found Conner Johnson on a 25-yard
scoring pass. Herriman couldn't run, though, and Lupeamanu
attempted 39 passes.

East's highlights - Curtis made the big play to help East regain
momentum. QB Isaac Valles ran for 147 yards and tossed two long
TD passes. The Leopards put the finishing touch on the game with a
long fourth-quarter drive that kept Herriman off the field.

Statistical notes - Lupeamanu set a school record with 39 passing
attempts and 327 yards. Herriman had just 19 rushing yards.
Johnson had 160 receiving yards before leaving the game with an
injury. Ben Richard was credited with 19 tackles.

What we learned from this game - This was a tough game for
Herriman, which should have played a No. 4 seed, but got perhaps
4A's best team because it was penalized for using ineligible players.
It was a great game, but Herriman was outmatched.

Next - Herriman finished its season with an 8-3 record. East moved
on to play at Box Elder.

Oct. 17 - Herriman 50, Clearfield 7

Story of the game - Vili Bloomfield scored three touchdowns and
Francis Bernard returned an interception for a score as Herriman
rallied from an early deficit and routed Clearfield in a non-region
game.

Herriman's highlights - After the Mustangs fell behind 7-0, they
dominated. The score was 29-7 at half. Herriman's offense virtually
scored at will, averaging more than 20 yards per rush. QB Tueni
Lupeamanu had 88 rushing yards and spent much of the second
half on the bench.

Clearfield's highlights - The Falcons' offensive details were mostly
unavailable. Clearfield scored first on a short pass play.

Statistical notes - Herriman put up 50 on Clearfield for the second
straight year. Kalisi Moli was credited with two sacks. Herriman had
three different QBs in this game.

What we learned from this game - This was a non-region game
and was basically a means for Herriman to get warmed up for the
playoffs.

Next - Herriman opens the 4A playoffs at home against East, a
play-in game winner over Mountain View. Clearfield is done for the
season.

Oct. 12 - Herriman 55, Westlake 7

Story of the game - Brandon Farmer and Francis Bernard had big
games running the ball and Herriman set a school record with a
31-point second quarter en route to routing Westlake in a Region 7
game.

Herriman's highlights - The Mustangs dominated again. They led
14-0 after the first quarter and 45-7 at half. They averaged almost 10
yards per carry and QB Tueni Lupemanu tossed two TD passes, too.
With the win, Herriman ended up tied for first place in region.

Westlake's highlights - The Thunder was out of this game by
halftime. Taylor Diaz, however, had a big night with two catches for 60
yards. Daniel Nugent had 42 rushing yards, including the team's only
touchdown. Colton Fairbourn was credited with two sacks.

Statistical notes - Herriman passed the 50-point mark for the fourth
time this season and is averaging 44 points/game. This time, the
Mustangs' placekicking was perfect. Devin Rasmussen returned a
blocked punt for a score. Herriman lost at Westlake last year.

What we learned from this game - The Mustangs came in
motivated. They honored their first senior class - all 33 of them - and
it was a big night for the home crowd. Skyline's loss to Olympus also
created a three-way tie for first place. A coin flip will determine
seeding for state.

Next - Herriman plays at Clearfield in a non-region game. Westlake
is done for the season.

Oct. 5 - Herriman 57, Murray 7

Story of the game - Francis Bernard ran for one touchdown and
returned a punt for another as Herriman jumped on Murray early and
routed the Spartans in a Region 7 game.

Herriman's highlights - This was a rout from the start. Herriman led
29-0 after the first quarter. Bernard had 110 rushing yards on just six
carries. Connor Johnson had three catches for 85 yards, including a
56-yard scoring pass to get everything started.

Murray's highlights - There weren't many. The Spartans' Riley
Richmond threw a 25-yard touchdown pass late in the second
quarter for the team's only score. The second half was played with a
running clock and lots of players got into the game.

Statistical notes - Herriman had almost 400 rushing yards, coming
from 11 different players. Tueni Lupeamanu threw for 102 yards, and
reserve Kyle Strauss got some playing time. The Mustangs used
three different kickers on PATs and each was successful.

What we learned from this game - Another Region 7 rout. Herriman
has come back from the Skyline loss with a vengeance. The 57
points was a school record.

Next - Herriman has its "Senior Night" game against Westlake.
Murray takes on Hillcrest.

Sept. 28 - Herriman 42, Olympus 9

Story of the game - Brady Farmer scored touchdowns on two big
plays - a punt return and on an 83-yard pass - as Herriman whipped
Olympus in a key Region 7 contest.

Herriman's highlights - Farmer's 69-yard punt return got the
Mustangs on the scoreboard first and they led 14-0 at halftime. The
defense dominated, holding Oly to just over 200 yards and the Titans
didn't find the end zone until late in the game.

Oly's highlights - The defense played well in the first half and was
credited with a safety when Herriman's punt snap went out of the end
zone. Tanner Goates and James Fox had big games on defense and
Oly had five sacks, but wilted in the final quarter.

Statistical notes - Herriman QB Tueni Lupeamanu completed 10 of
12 passes for 162 yards. Oly's Anthony Schoenfeld's 64 yard TD run
in the fourth quarter was easily the team's offensive highlight.
Herriman's special teams showed improvement. PK Brady Heninger
nailed all six PATs.

What we learned from this game - Herriman came back with a
vengeance after last week's loss at Skyline. The Mustangs are the
most talented team in Region 7, but need to show it every week.

Next - Herriman plays at Murray. Olympus goes to Hillcrest.

Sept. 21 - Skyline 24, Herriman 22

Story of the game - Tyler Snyder threw for 167 yards and scored the
winning touchdown on a 6-yard run late in the game as Skyline
surprised Herriman for the second straight year in a Region 7 game.

Herriman's highlights - QB Tueni Lupeamanu rushed for 102 yards
and took up the slack for Francis Bernard, who was held in check.
Brandon Farmer had the game's biggest play with a 90-yard kickoff
return that was a huge momentum boost.

Skyline's highlights - One year after shocking the Mustangs on their
home field, Skyline did it again in its homecoming contest. Snyder
had a good game running and passing and Chris Williams caught
eight passes for 115 yards. Its key play may have been when it held
Herriman to a field goal leading to Skyline's final drive.

Statistical notes - Stuart Barrett kicked a 32-yard field goal and
connect on all three of Skyline's extra points, which made a big
difference. Lupeamanu completed just 5 of 17 passes, but for 105
yards. Garrett England caught one TD passed and completed one for
29 yards.

What we learned from this game - This has become a nice rivalry.
In two games, Herriman had dropped both by a combined three
points. The Mustangs fell from the favorites' perch in Region 7.

Next - Herriman plays host to Olympus. Skyline goes to Hillcrest.

game. To read the Deseret News brief,

Sept. 14 - Herriman 56, Hillcrest 7

Story of the game - Brandon Farmer had a huge night, rushing for
229 yards and two long touchdown runs, as Herriman opened
Region 7 play with a convincing win over Hillcrest.

Herriman's highlights - Farmer started the game with an 80-yard
score and the Mustangs led 21-0 after one quarter. Herriman had
478 yards rushing in this game, which has to be a record. The 56
points was also a school best.

Hillcrest's highlights - The Huskies came out after halftime with a
resilience and Tanner Thompson's 4-yard run created some
momentum. Thompson threw for 153 yards, most went to Bailey
Ammons, who caught five passes for 131 yards.

Statistical notes - Herriman's line dominated. Herriman held the
Huskies to 42 rushing yards on 26 carries. Lupeamanu had 80 yards
on four carries, including a pair of touchdowns. Brady Heninger and
Colt Andolsek split the kicking chores.

What we learned from this game - Herriman moved to 1-0 in region
and showed there is a lot of difference between the upper and lower
tiered teams in this region. RB Francis Bernard left with an injury. At
this time, his status is unknown.

on Westlake.

scored touchdowns in the third quarter to blow the game open. The

Aug. 31 - Herriman 31, Highland 14

Story of the game - Francis Bernard rushed for 104 yards and
returned an interception for a score in the fourth period as Herriman
outlasted Highland in a non-region game.

Herriman's highlights - While Bernard made the game's biggest
plays, the Mustangs also got important performances from Brandon
Farmer and Vuni Bloomfield. PK Brady Heninger also hit a field goal
just before halftime to regain the lead.

Highland's highlights - The Rams got off to a slow start, but QB
Austin Peterson found Adam Webber and Malcolm Card-Turner on
long touchdown passes to tie the game. Highland tried several other
long throws during the game, but did not connect.

Statistical notes - Herriman coach Larry Wilson used to coach at
Highland, and it was an important game for him. Herriman QB Tueni
Lupeamanu was 12 of 18 for 123 yards, but several completions
resulted in first downs.

What we learned from this game - Herriman beat Highland its own
game, playing "smash mouth" football and wearing down the Rams
late in the game. The contest, however, was much closer than the
17-point outcome.

Next -  Herriman goes to Copper Hills. Highland is at Lone Peak.

Aug. 25 - Riverton 23, Herriman 22 (OT)

Story of the game - Jake Simonich rushed for 144 yards and Stratton
Brown and Albert Tai stopped Herriman's Francis Bernard short of
the goal line on the last play as Riverton edged Herriman in a
non-region game at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Herriman's highlights - It was a hot afternoon and the Mustangs
started cold. They trailed 16-0 before rallying in the last few minutes
of the game. Tueni Lupeamanu threw for 222 yards and two
fourth-quarter scores. After scoring in overtime, Herriman went for the
win but Bernard was stopped short.

Riverton's highlights - The Silverwolves never trailed. Brown's
51-yard touchdown started it all and the defense dominated until late.
The defense had four sacks and, even after giving up the TD in
overtime, came on to make the big play at the end.

Statistical notes - Bernard had 94 yards on 17 carries, but Herriman
managed just 141 yards on the ground. Simonich had more than that
by himself. Lupeamanu had an amazing second half, amassing 211
passing yards and several big plays. Riverton's junior QB, Connor
Henderson, had 61 passing yards, but no INTs.

What we learned from this game - Another great rivalry game that
went down to the wire and - once again - almost eclipsed the primary
game of the "Black and Blue" Classic.

Next - Herriman returns home to play Highland. Riverton travels to
Syracuse.

Aug. 17 - Herriman 49, Orem 21

Story of the game - Francis Bernard rushed for 112 yards and four
touchdowns and QB Tueni Lupeamanu threw a 60-yard touchdown
pass on Herriman's first offensive play as the Mustangs whipped
Orem in the season opener for both teams.

Herriman's highlights - The Mustangs never trailed. The game was
tied 14-14 before Herriman blew the game open in the second
quarter. The defense shut down Orem's running game and had two
interceptions and three sacks.

Orem's highlights - QB Taylor Camp had the offense running
smoothly right away, throwing two TD passes to Nolan Gray in the
first quarter. Camp had 262 yards, but was a one-man show.

Statistical notes - Herriman had 281 yards rushing and averaged
almost seven yards per carry. Lupeamanu also averaged over 33
yards per completion. Orem had minus (-11) yards rushing. Gray,
Tyler Valdez and Parker Overly were Camp's favorite targets.

What we learned from this game - Orem was predicted to be good
this year, so this was one of the best opening-week games locally
and Herriman handled it well. The Mustangs appear to be one of
4A's top teams, too.

Next - Herriman plays rival Riverton at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Orem
has Pine View at home.
