He was responsible for 100 tackles, 28 hurries and 10 sacks. Lewis, who played only two years of organized football, "developed into one of the better defensive players on our team," Clements said. He contributed 74 tackles and 3 sacks. Jex averaged 16 yards per reception as he accounted for 25 catches and 400 yards. He also had five touchdowns, impressively scoring one for every five catches. Libberton "did it all," said Clements. "He was our team MVP, accounting for 65 percent of our total offensive yardage (725 rushing, 670 passing, 170 receiving) and 30 percent of the scoring. He was in 90 percent of the total plays we ran this year. He doesn't know the meaning of the words 'can't' or 'quit."

Acting Pioneer head coach Brett Bergholm said, "In the first half, we weren't playing defense as well as we should have. At halftime, I told them, 'We need to box them out. That's something we have not done tonight."" He pointed out that in the second half, "we changed from a defense to a zone press. We picked up a lot of easy baskets on it." The first half went down as anybody's game. Pulling down a defensive board, Don Julie Wesson cut away for a jump shot that opened the game's scoring. Lacey Yates' inside jumper evened the game at two. Before Lehi could slice the tie, an Adrian DeHart layup restored the lead to Spanish Fork.
