A sophomore football game was halted in the fourth quarter after two players for West Jordan High were taken to the hospital for concussions they sustained during play.

West Jordan was the visiting team at Alta High School in Sandy. Morgan was at another game at West Jordan High when the injuries occurred.

Morgan said that the injuries occurred separately but were pretty close together. One boy was being looked at for the first injury when the second one happened, he said. Shortly after that, officials stopped the game at the fourth quarter. Both injuries were sustained during game play.

Morgan did not release the boys’ names.
