Town versus town, high school basketball game gets heated

The Lions versus the Skyhawks.  Green versus Blue. The Utes and BYU story of two small town high schools. Sweat falls and curse words come out as the Salem Skyhawks pull ahead of the Payson Lions. The second half gives Payson a new hope, a chance to overcome a 10 point deficit. The score rises 28 to 38, 31 to 38. Closer and closer the tension in the air gets thick with every pass. The chanting of the cheerleaders echos in everybody's ears, “FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!!”
