Cowboys prep for big homecoming game after handling Monument Valley

Cowboys went on the road again last Friday night to Kayenta, Ariz., to take on Monument Valley. The Mustangs surprised the Cowboys by scoring on their opening drive and stuffing the Cowboys on defense. The Cowboys got on track shortly after, and put up two touchdowns in the first quarter to make it 14-6. Coach Quarnberg said, “We have been improving each week and getting good experience. Which was the top priority to start the year. Our offensive line has improved each week and should become the strength of our team. Britton Little, Karter Ramsay, Nate Stewart, Wyatt Orton and Logan Veater are the five up front.”

Kanab continued their dominance in the second quarter, putting up three more touchdowns to extend the lead to 35-6 at halftime. Quarnberg continued, “We have won games that we were expected to win, which is challenging sometimes. Griffen has shouldered a big load and played very well. We have solid senior leadership.” The Cowboys put up two more touchdowns in the third quarter, before resting a lot of the starters and letting the second-string finish off the game, with the final score 49-12 after the Mustangs punched in one final touchdown before the final buzzer sounded.

Bone led with three passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown, while Hayden Gubler and Rider Allen each found the endzone. Gubler led with 104 rushing yards to add to the total Cowboys rushing attack with 278 yards on the ground. Maddix Baird and Cooper Anderson each snagged a toss from Bone for a receiving touchdown to spread the offense around. Britton Little and Drey Stubbs were beasts on the defensive side, adding seven and five tackles respectively. Isaac Clarkson and Gubler each stole an interception from the Mustangs.

The Cowboys are excited to host their first home game of the season against tough rival Millard Eagles for Homecoming.

Quarnberg added, “We get into a touch stretch of the schedule now. Three really tough home games in a row. We will take them one at a time. Millard will show up and play physical football. They have been finding a way to win close games and certainly should have some confidence. They have found some ways to slow us down in the past, so we need to be able to adjust and execute.”

The Eagles came back after being down 18-0 against the Milford Tigers to snag the victory 21-18 last week. Come out and enjoy homecoming game this week, at Arlyn Hafen Stadium, on Friday, September 1, at 7 p.m.
