Cowboys jumped out to an early lead 16-13 after the first quarter of play, until the Rams tied it up 28-28 at halftime. Kanab had a strong third quarter, which proved crucial as they held onto their lead to finish off the Rams 58-52.
As the reigning state champs, the Cowboys have had a target on their back all year, with the Rams giving the Cowboys fits both times they faced off this year. The girls have countered really well and maintained their focus while securing the victories down the stretch.
The Parowan Rams travelled to Kanab, looking for their second win of the season, but it wasn’t going to come at the hand of the Rams. The Cowboys jumped out to an early lead 20-9 after the first quarter, and added to it with 21-points in the second to hold a 41-15 lead at halftime. The upper classmen were able to rest most of the second half, gliding to a 67-40 lead to move to 17-2 on the season.
They have a tough test this week against the Beaver Beavers on Tuesday, January 29, followed by Enterprise on Thursday, February 1.
