SMITHFIELD — They say that the best offense is a good defense.

If that’s the case, then Sky View was all offense in Friday night’s football matchup with Logan.

The Bobcats compiled four sacks, four interceptions a goal line stand and a fumble recovery to help defeat the Grizzlies 35-0 — and shut out Logan for the first time in 20 years.

“Our defense was just fabulous tonight,” SV head coach Craig Anhder said. “Give Logan a lot of credit, they had a great game plan to move the ball. Time of possession, they probably won that battle, and that kept our offense off the field. It made it a little harder to get in sync, but our defense was just fabulous.”

For the second time in as many games, the Bobcats turned the ball over on their second play.

Starting quarterback Jackson Siddoway hit Brock Mortenson for short yardage. Mortenson coughed the ball up and Logan’s Robbie Ballam picked it up.

“Offense came out of the gate struggling,” said SV’s Riley Haderlie, who finished with eight tackles, two sacks and an interception. “They weren’t prepared as much as they should have been. They weren’t focused as much as they should have been, in my opinion. We (as a defense) were just like, ‘Hey, we got your back if you got ours.’”

Sky View (2-0) brought a boatload of pressure the first three downs. Haderlie dropped Logan QB Jonny Parkinson for a 9-yard loss on second down, and the Grizzlies (0-2) were forced to punt.

The Bobcat offense chunked up yardage on the ground en route to a 1-yard TD run from Cole Stokes.

A Haderlie interception set up Sky View for another Stokes touchdown run, this time from 2 yards out.

Then the Bobcats pushed the lead to 21-0 early in the second quarter when Breck Jackson hit Nate Phillips from 4 yards out.

“A lot of this is personal,” said J.R. Martindale, who had nine tackles, a sack and an interception for Sky View. “We want to beat those guys. We’ve been playing them since we were in first grade. We’re not going to let up on them.”

Neither the Sky View offense nor defense let up — not even when the Grizzlies had the ball on the 1-yard line just before the half.

Logan’s Chance Corless ran the ball from the 1 and met a wall of Sky View linemen. The huddle collapsed, the ball came loose and players from both teams signaled one way or the other before the referees cleared the pile and finally signaled Sky View ball as Ty Lewis came out holding the ball like it were the last life preserver on the Titanic.

“We got to hold the ball high and tight and can’t let the officials make a decision there,” Logan head coach Jayson Anderson said.

After getting a pair of receiving touchdowns called back in the first half, Brock Mortenson opened the second half with a 14-yard touchdown run. In Sky View’s next series, Mortenson burst through the middle for a 72-yard touchdown run.

“I ran through the hole and there wasn’t a safety, and thought, well, I guess I’m scoring,” Mortenson said. “I just kept running. It was the best feeling.”

Woody Udy intercepted Parkinson in the second quarter, but fumbled the ball on the return. Logan’s Eric Donaldson forced it, and Hazley Wildman picked it up. Ballam also picked off Siddoway in the second quarter. The game ended as Sky View’s Caleb Christensen picked off Parkinson.

“Really, we just got to do a better job of preparing our guys,” Anderson said. “Right now, if I’m someone looking at us, the way I beat us is bring pressure. Our offensive line has struggled, and they’re young and that’s going to happen, but we got to be a lot more competitive up front and more physical. I think everyone would agree with that in the locker room for sure.”
