Game Preview Capsule: Canyon View at Snow Canyon

GAME PREVIEW CAPSULE
Canyon View (1-3, 0-1) at Snow Canyon (3-1, 0-0)
Previous Meeting: Snow Canyon 38, Canyon View 0 (Sept. 16, 2011 at CV)

FALCONS
Classification: 3A, Region 9
Coach: Alex Huxford (fifth year, 7-34 overall)
Offense: Spread, pro-set
Last week: Lost to Desert Hills 56-7
Players to watch: It’s hard to take any positives out of a 56-7 thrashing, but QB Koy Huxford continues to play all out, though he rarely has much time to pass. RB Stetson Dearden never got it going against a swarming DH defense.
PPG: 15.5
PAPG: 30.5
Trend: Desert Hills whipped the Falcons up in Cedar City. Now the Falcons have to hit the road. It probably won’t be pretty. It’s just too bad the Falcons don’t play in a different region as we don’t seen anywhere that they’ll get a win in Region 9.

WARRIORS
Classification: 3A, Region 9
Coach: Jay Graft (eighth year, 35-37 overall)
Offense: Spread, pro-set
Last week: Beat North Sanpete 34-3
Players to watch: Region 9 has got some great running backs and Mitch Phillips is making a case as of late to be near the top of that list. He had 220 yards last week and should have plenty of room to roam this week as well. RB Taylor Johansen is a threat in the running game and as a receiver.
PPG: 34.8
PAPG: 16.3
Trend: That’s three in a row for the Warriors and they should have no problem making it four tonight against Canyon View. This game should be a fine-tuning tool for SC because the schedule gets real tough real fast after tonight.

GAME OUTLOOK
Fact: Snow Canyon runs the ball well. Fact: Canyon View has a hard time stopping the run. Oh boy, Phillips and Co. should have a big night en route to another Warriors win. The Falcons got a win in preseason, but will be hard-pressed to get another this year, although they do play Ogden during their region bye.

STGnews PREDICTION
Andy Griffin (20-3) — Snow Canyon
