The Alta junior varsity football team used a balanced offensive attack and stingy defense Monday night to defeat Pomeroy-Palmer in Pomeroy, 30-6.
The Cyclones, 3-1 on the year, totalled nearly 300 yards of offense on the night, as the team rushed for 161 yards and passed for 132 yards on the evening.
The Alta offense was led by sophomore fullback Kole Petersen, who carried the ball 16 times for 66 yards, and freshman quarterback Nick Nesbitt, who rushed nine times for 51 yards during the contest.
Nesbitt also completed five-of-six passes for 82 yards and one touchdown.
Freshman wingback Jarrod Garrison was also instrumental in the win, recording seven carries for 43 yards, two receptions for 20 yards, one pass for 37 yards and one touchdown.
Sophomore tight end Steve Hamer also had a good offensive night with two receptions for 48 yards and two touchdowns.
The defensive effort was led by sophomore defensive ends Heath Stille and Steve Hamer, who had six and five tackles, respectively.
Garrison, meanwhile, chipped in on the defensive side, as the linebacker had five tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown.
Sophomore linebacker Jesse Hunter had five tackles, while freshman defensive tackle Adam Pedersen made an impact with four tackles.
The team will be in action at home next Monday, Sept. 31, against Sac City.
