Cowboys shut out Parowan 28-0
The Kanab Cowboys ran all over the Parowan Rams last Friday night 28-0 to go 2-0 on the young season. The Cowboys ran for 310 yards on 41 carries, with fullbacks Kyle Livingston and Josh Urianza gaining 109 and 113 yards respectively.
After a scoreless first quarter, Kanab got on the scoreboard with 7:03 left in the second frame on a five yard run by Livingston. The Cowboys were the recipients of a short field after getting a Ram punt on their own 47 yard line. It only took seven plays to get into the end zone, with 16 yard runs by Livingston and Urianza gaining most of the yardage.
Parowan had their best chance to score on their next possession when running back Konai Bloomfield broke a long run of 53 yards to the Cowboy 18. Kanab’s defense held, and Parowan missed a 32 yard field goal.
Kanab got the ball on their own 20 with 3:08 left in the half and put together a beautiful two-minute drill, scoring a touchdown with :34 left on a five yard pass from Brandon Jenson to Merrill Terry. After Livingston picked up a first down on a second and 16, Jenson completed four passes to four different receivers to lead them into the end zone. The score made it 14-0 at the half.
Livingston had 99 of his 109 yards rushing in the first half.
Kanab scored its third touchdown of the game late in the third period on a fourth and 12 pass play from Jenson to Brandon Nielson, good for 14 yards. The score, with 1:20 left, capped a 71 yard drive in two mintues and five seconds. The big play came on a 41 yard run by Urianza, which was followed by an 18 yard gain by Terry on a sweep. Terry fumbled at the end of his run, but an alert James Anderson jumped on the ball to keep the drive alive for Kanab.
The final Cowboy score came with :29 left in the game when sophomore Taylor Glover rambled in from four yards out in a fourth and goal situation.
Jenson completed six of 20 passes for 141 yards and two TDs.
Kanab’s defense was huge, holding Parowan to 93 yards rushing and 29 yards passing.
