HURRICANE – The No. 1 ranked Hurricane Tigers (5-0, 2-0) welcome the Snow Canyon Warriors (2-2, 1-0) during Homecoming week. The Tigers high-powered rushing offense takes on a Warrior defense that is second in the Region for stopping the run.

The Tigers offense is led by a trio of running backs Brian Scott, the Regions leading rusher with 143 yards per game; Weston Yardley and Jared Edwards.

Ben Gottfredson and Curtis Bulloch lead the Warrior defense. The Warrior tandem will have to help stop the run to have any chance tonight against the Tigers.

The Tigers defense has caused a Region best 17 turnovers to Snow Canyon’s 9. The Tigers have only turned it over four times all year, which also leads the Region.

Hurricane has won five of the last six meetings against Snow Canyon.
