Long road trip no problem as Warriors cruise past Park City

Snow Canyon carried its domination of Shadow Ridge last week over to Friday night’s game against Park City and crushed the Miners 51-27.

The Warriors scored two quick touchdowns in the first quarter and then tacked on an additional 17 points in the second for the 31-7 halftime lead.

“We were able to run the ball a lot better tonight,” Warrior coach Jay Graft said. “Our passing game was much better than last week. We still need to improve there. And we still turned the ball over too much.

“It’s gonna be tough to win games against Region 9 turning the ball over two or three times.”

The game was such a blowout that Graft removed most of his starters early in the second half.

“We were up pretty big,” Graft said. “But then (Park City) scored and we had to put our boys back in. They went in there and we scored again.”

The Warriors rushed for nearly 400 yards, thanks in large part to quarterback Mason Smith.

“He’s doing really well,” Graft said. “He runs the option really well. He’s a great leader and believes in what we’re trying to do. The kids believe in him.”

Snow Canyon turned the ball over its first possession, but held strong defensively. They regained control and marched down the field with a purpose. Mason Smith connected with Jace Graft that set the Warriors up on Park City’s 15-yard line. A few plays later, Mitch Phillips ran the ball in.

The Warriors pushed the lead to double digits and never looked back.

“I feel like we need one more game to really get going,” Graft said. “We gotta play North Sanpete next week. We gotta come ready to play. And we gotta take care of turnovers and stay balanced on offense and defense.”
