Warrior quarterback Jackson Nowatzke completed 11 of 14 passes, including a 41-yard shot to Jake Rhea. Josh Barnes had 84 rushing yards and scored a TD. But the story of the night was the Warrior defense, which forced four turnovers (two fumbles, two interceptions) and put the offense in great scoring position all night long.

Andrew Day hit a pair of field goals, one early in the third quarter that put Snow Canyon ahead 10-7 and the other early in the fourth quarter that gave the Warriors their biggest lead of the night at 26-7.

Tyson Deland also scored for Snow Canyon, which improved to 2-0 heading into next week’s home tilt against 2-0 Juan Diego.
