Bobcats rally with two back to back victories

After a disappointing loss to region foe and valley rival Logan, Sky View recorded a pair of key region wins.

They followed that up this week with a pre-UEA weekend drubbing of the Ogden High Tigers by posting a 52-0 Wednesday night win.

Sky View moves to 7-2 for the season (4-1 in the region) after these two victories; and take sole possession of second place in the region.
