The Warriors left no doubt through its effort against the Falcons about how good they can be.
Snow Canyon (1-0 in region, 2-2 overall) did not take long to put points on the board and quell the Canyon View homecoming crowd. Quarterback Brayden Linde found his senior comrade Connor Livingston for a 62-yard touchdown four plays into the Warriors’ first possession.
Livingston ran a corner route, snared Linde’s pass, then broke a Falcons’ tackle attempt, and raced down the field to put Snow Canyon up 6-0.
“We came out of the chute with intensity,” Livingston said. “We came out hard and ready to play.”
Linde finished with 119 yards of passing and distributed the ball to a variety of Warriors’ receivers. He found three different players on touchdown strikes.
“He was throwing pretty well tonight,” Livingston said. “We had a lot of receivers contribute tonight.”
Livingston (four receptions, 104 yards and the td) said the group did more than run routes though.
“We were all trying to make good blocks for the running backs and catch the ball when we could,” he said.
Snow Canyon running back Mitch Phillips was the beneficiary of some great Warriors’ blocking. Phillips piled up 172 yards on 18 carries.
The Warriors had reason to enjoy the win, but come Monday, they will begin working on their plan to play against Hurricane Friday.
“We feel like we have some momentum going, but we have to be focused this upcoming week,” Livingston said. “The other teams are playing hard and we have to be ready.
“We were excited after the game, but we know we have to come at it hard in practice this week.”
