Senior Night in Arlyn Hafen Stadium ends in blowout win
Kanab welcomed the (1-5) Parowan Rams for Senior Night last Friday, October 14, to end the regular season.
It didn’t take long for the Cowboys to put points on the board as Waylon White and Hayden Gubler both ran in touchdowns. Derek Brown came up with another big interception in Cowboy territory, and the next play, Waylon White came up with a huge reception after the ball bounced off a Ram defender. Griffen Bone would run the next snap in for a touchdown to make it 21-0. After a punt by the Rams, Preston Brown who had a huge night, ran it up the middle for a 20-yard run, making it 28-0.
The Cowboys continued to pour it on with strong defense, and even more offense, with Bone adding his second touchdown early in the second quarter to make it 35-0. Waylon White cut through two defenders to come up with the second interception of the game. Then senior Kason Janes did what he does best and took a screen pass at the 35- yard line, broke multiple tackles and walked in for a TD. Bone connected with Janes again on a deep ball, with Janes stiff arming his way to the endzone. White would come up with another huge interception after tipping the ball to himself right before the half.
The Cowboys would go on to win 48-7, letting the younger core of players get some opportunities in the second half.
The Cowboys finished the regular season with a very strong 8-2 record overall, finishing 3-1 in region play and second place in the 1A south region. For the first-round playoff game, the Cowboys will host the Duchesne Eagles at 7 p.m., on Friday, October 21.
“Duchesne is not a sixth seed in our opinion,” Coach Quarnberg said, “they are more like a top four or five team. They had a rough start but are now playing their best football. We are fortunate to have a earned a home game so they have to come here, but we know they will bring it. We have to prepare the right way and play our best football in order to move on.”
