The Carbon and Emery High School football teams couldnвЂ™t have asked for a better start to the season after both squads jumped out to 2-0 starts.
Victories over Monticello and American Leadership Academy have the Carbon Dinos off to their best start since 1994 when the team also started 2-0.
Both the Deseret News and The Salt Lake Tribune currently rank the Spartans No. 4 in the 2A classification. Emery has enjoyed convincing wins over Richfield and Uintah.
The road begins to get a little tougher Friday as Carbon hosts 1-1 Ben Lomond and Emery visits 1-1 Manti.
The Emery/Manti contest will be the 2A North Region opener for both teams. Manti is ranked No. 3 in the Deseret News and No. 5 in The Salt Lake Tribune.
The Carbon/Ben Lomond tilt, CarbonвЂ™s third of four preseason games, will be broadcast live on ETV Channel 10 at 7 p.m. Friday.
