The Morgan High Basketball team started the season with three games last week.   On Wednesday they traveled to Juan Diego to play the Soaring Eagles who moved to region 10 this year.  It was Juan Diego’s second game of the year having beaten Bear River on the road by three points.  The Trojans were off to a great start with Garrett Kuns hitting his first four baskets for eight points. The Trojan defense was strong, holding Juan Diego to two baskets and only seven points.  The Trojans led 15-7 at the end of the first quarter and during the second quarter Boston Saunders scored all of Morgan’s 9 points putting the team in the lead by three at halftime. In the third quarter Juan Diego outscored the Trojans 19-8 taking an eight point lead, but the Trojans mounted a great comeback during the fourth quarter. Down by 10 with fewer than 3 minutes to go, Jake Miles caught fire and scored 10 points from the field to help gain the lead.  Finishing it off, Colby Skinner hit a huge 3 and the team made 8 of 9 free throws to ice the 55-49 victory.

This season has been the best I have seen these boys play with their hearts.  As this season comes to an end, we see the tears of dedication and of sacrifice come to a halt.  The last region game against the Spanish Fork Don’s was a hard loss at 20 to 35. However it was fought well and the Morgan Varsity football made some very strategic plays and grew together in trusting each other, trusting the coaches, and showing unity as a team. Spanish Fork commented that this game and playing against the Morgan Trojans, was the toughest game they have played against all year.
