Iron Horse: Rhyle Hanson runs wild as Ogden beats Ben Lomond 56-26 | High School |

Overall a great win. Kind of a put off that the Officiating blew a call badly. Ben Lomond should have had another TD, as it was very clear the runner had scored before losing the ball, which was returned by Ogden back to the BL Red Zone. I felt bad for the scots on that call. But nice to keep the iron Horse where it belongs!

OGDEN — When your offense scores touchdowns on all six first-half drives, that’s usually a good omen. There are plenty of good omens going around the Ogden High football program these days.

The Tigers’ fast-and-furious offense was too much for Ben Lomond in the 66th Iron Horse game Thursday night.

The Tigers (6-3, 3-2 Region 11) scored touchdowns on their first seven drives going into the third quarter as they cruised to a 56-26 win over crosstown rival Ben Lomond (0-9, 0-5).

The result, coupled with Tooele’s loss to Park City, means Ogden will enter the 4A state playoffs as the No. 3 seed from Region 11, meaning a likely road game at Spanish Fork in two weeks.

It’s Ogden’s first trip to the playoffs since 2011, the best season record-wise since 2009 with the potential for the best season since 1988 with one more win.

Speaking of history, Rhyle Hanson may have notched his name in some sort of record book for a single-game performance in Ogden and Iron Horse history.

“Shoot, I gotta take my linemen to dinner. That’s all I’ve got to say,” Hanson said, laughing.

The senior running back rushed 27 times for 227 yards and five rushing touchdowns, turning small blocking gaps into big plays and shouldering the running load after Chase Butler’s shoulder injury forced him to play only at linebacker.

Quarterback Bo DeVries threw for 214 yards and three touchdowns: two to Irving Gastelum, who had 110 receiving yards, and one to Butler.

The turning point of the game came on the Scots’ second drive when both Nick Freeman and Isaac Wilson were hurt on the same play, one play before a Ben Lomond touchdown.

It was a rallying point for Ogden from then on, Hanson said. Tigers head coach Erik Thompson said Freeman and Wilson likely have season-ending injuries.
