Preston drops final game to Bees 44-25

Preston’s thrill ride of missed opportunities was never more apparent during its season-ending 44-25 loss to Bonneville in Idaho Falls on Thursday night.
In a span of 23 seconds near the end of the first half, Preston’s fortunes turned from riches to “here we go again.” The Indians came out with swagger, scoring first and appeared to move the ball effortlessly at times against the Bees.
With 22 seconds left in the first half, Courd Jones scored from 11 yards out to put the Indians ahead 18-12.
Just like that, everything fell apart.
Set up by a reverse, Bonneville quickly moved the ball down to Preston’s 45-yard line. With three seconds left on the clock, Bees quarterback Tanner Smith rolled to his right looking toward the end zone. With pressure looming, he released the ball to a waiting Tyson Craig at the back of the end zone. Facing single coverage, Craig jumped for the ball and managed to come down in bounds.
