Park City dumps Pirates overboard in Homecoming game

Panthers pick up crucial win over 6C rival

 

Story by RYAN MINCH

The Park City Panthers did what every team hopes to do on homecoming — win.

And they did so in convincing fashion as they picked up a much needed Southern C Conference victory with a 72-30 drubbing of Broadview-Lavina Friday night at Panther Field in Park City.

“Our offensive line did a tremendous job of opening up some big holes for our running backs and give (Ty) time to throw the football,” said Park City head coach Jason Ness. “They held ther blocks well, it was just a good night all around.”

The win improved Park City’s record to 2-3 as they reached the mid-point of the season. The Pirates dropped to 1-3

Quarterback Ty Robbie accounted for four scores  as he had three scores covering 9, 11 and 29 yards as well as a seven-yard scoring strike to Grant McNeil in the first quarter that put Park City up 14-0.

The Panthers led 30-6 at halftime and took a 44-22 lead into the fourth quarter where they exploded for 28 points, albeit after a lengthy lightning delay.

Robbie opened the final quarter with a 29 yard scoring run before May and Flemmer sandwiched fumble returns for touchdowns around a three-yard scoring run by May.

Park City hits the road next week to face Shields Valley in Willsall. “It’s a real big game for us,” said Ness. “They’re a good football team and we’re getting back to 100 percent so I like to see where  we are at.” 

The Rebels are currently a half game up on the Panthers in the Southern C standings with a 2-2 league record.

Following the Shields Valley game, Park City is off next week before closing the season with games against  Gardiner and Absarokee.

Both teams are currently below the Panthers in the District 6C standings  and those games will certainly determine Park City’s postseason chances.

“It’s right where we wanted to be heading into the season,” Ness added. “We’re in position to make a run here at the end of the season now and we’re hoping to finish strong.”

The Class C 8-Man Playoffs begin with 12 teams November 1 with the championship game scheduled for November 22.
