A week after ending Bingham’s 36-game in-state winning streak and entering the Super 25 at No. 21, Lone Peak (Highland) was stunned by Herriman 17-14 in the Utah 5A state title game.
Herriman scored the winning points with 22 seconds remaining as Kaden Strasters scored on a 1-yard run. The play was immediately named the “Mustang Miracle 2015” on the school’s Twitter feed.
Lone Peak, which trailed 10-0 at halftime, had taken a 14-10 lead with 4:28 remaining when Talmage Gunther hit Tyson Doman on a 8-yard TD pass. The two hooked up again on the two-point conversion for a three-point edge.
After stopping Herriman on the next possession, Lone Peak had the lead and the ball but was stuffed on a three-and-out and forced to punt. Herriman then put together an eight-play scoring drive that covered 57 yards in 1:49.
Lone Peak finished 13-1. Among those victories was a 30-0 drubbing of Herriman in the region title, but the outcome was much different with the state title up for grabs.
