Photos: Fifth-ranked Highland’s furious second-half rally stuns reigning 5A champion Rocky Mountain in state quarterfinals

MERIDIAN – It was a shocking way for defending Class 5A champion Rocky Mountain’s up-and-down season to end.

The Grizzlies blew an 18-point lead in the second half, and saw their reign end Friday night after No. 5 Highland rallied for a 22-21 victory in the state quarterfinals.

Ian Hershey booted the game-winning 45-yard field for the Rams with 3:25 remaining – set up their defense’s fourth-down stop of the Grizzlies in their own territory.
