After beating the Wasatch Wasps last week in the first round of playoffs, the Rams were hoping to squeeze another win in during the quarterfinals against the Corner Canyon Chargers this past Friday night. However, the Rams couldn’t keep up with the undefeated Chargers and lost 37-0.

The Chargers controlled the game from the start, dominating every aspect of it. They limited Highland’s total offensive yards to 148. It was a tough game for the Rams, who were unable to get on track with their running and passing game. In addition, the Rams committed many penalties, which further hindered their ability to be put on the board.

“We really just needed to take their speed into accountability,” senior quarterback Cole Peterson said. “We should have just kept on going, and should have played our own game instead of playing theirs.”

Despite the heartbreaking end to their season, the Rams have had a very good season in general and should be very proud of everything they have accomplished. They were 4-1 overall in region, and only lost to Lehi earlier in October.

“I love this team with all my heart,” Peterson said. “Playing with that offensive line this year has been my favorite.”

All the seniors this year can’t help but look back at their time being a part of the Highland football program and all the memories that have been made. They are grateful for the things their coaches and teammates have taught them.

“Going into practice every day and playing with all my seniors and all the younger kids…you just can’t relive that,” Peterson said.

Although Highland will be losing more than 20 seniors from the team this year, the younger guys are ready to step up this offseason and prepare for their time to shine next year. But until that time comes, the seniors this year will be missed and should be very proud of the great football season they had.
