Miners head to semis after beating Timpanogos in football playoffs 28-24

4A Park City is now 6-0 in the region and 11-1 overall

PARK CITY, Utah — Friday night at Park City High School’s Dozier Field the miners rolled on to state playoffs with a win over Timpanogos 28-24.

At halftime the score was 14-0 Miners. 

6’2″ senior and quarterback #15 Blake Tabaracci was unfortunately hurt during the game with a lower limb injury, what looked like his knee. An ambulance was utilized for ground transportation to a medical facility. His invaluable consistent contributions to the team were missed in the rest of the game. Not only does the entire Park City community genuinely hope he’s going to make a fast and full recovery but so do the D1 university coaches to whom he’s already committed. The Tabaracci phenomenal football family is a favorite for fans.

With 10 minutes left in the game, the score was 21-14 Miners.

Then, when there was 6:40 left on the game clock, Miner senior quarterback #8 Lincoln Jackson connected with a huge throw to wide receiver #80 junior Reece Smith for a big first down.

With five minutes remaining in the second half, Miner Will Mccurdy, #26 senior running back, made an 8-yard run into the end zone, as seen above in the video, for a touchdown, making the score 28-17 Park City.

Park City High School Junior Class President Cameron Lentz told TownLift, “Our Park City Miners football team is going on to the semifinals, we’re so proud of them, it’s been a great season.” He eluded to how crowds were a little timid in the student section of the stands with that sad, shocking injury to classmate and friend who the students all send healing vibes to. He continued, “We got real fired up near the end, we got loud, we all cheered for our team, we got a fumble recovery, we won the game and we’re going to semis!”

4A Park City is now 6-0 in the region and 11-1 overall.

The Miners move on to play on Thursday, Nov. 9 at the University of Utah’s Rice Eccles Stadium at 6 p.m. against the 9-3 Green Canyon High School from Logan. The winner will play in the Utah High School Football State Championships at the U.
