Four turnovers doomed the Emery High football team as it dropped a 2A State Tournament at Manti 34-6.
The Spartan defense played well throughout the game, but the defensive unit couldn’t overcome fatigue and regularly short fields.
Manti repeated a dominant week three performance in which it took advantage of multiple Emery turnovers and won going away. This season’s two meetings between the teams were quite similar in nature.
Emery’s lone score came on a second-quarter touchdown pass from Spencer Labrum to Dominic Rondinelli. The scoring play went for 28 yards.
Manti advances to meet South Summit in the semifinals.
The game was broadcast live on ETV Channel 10. Rebroadcasts will air throughout the coming weeks.
