Hurricane 21, Snow Canyon 13
ST. GEORGE — Hurricane rushed for 252 yards and picked off two Snow Canyon passes to hold on for the defensive win, and in the meantime, forged ahead into first place in the 3AA South Region by improving to 4-0 in league play.
Snow Canyon drove it early in the second half, but Jeremiah Ieremia picked off SC quarterback Jacob Frei and ran it all the way back to the Warriors 5-yard line. Ieremia took the next play and rushed it in for a 14-0 Tigers lead early in the second half.
Snow Canyon got on the board with a TD pass from Frei to TJ Taimi from 10 yards out. But the Tigers answered with another long drive. Ieremia scored his second TD on a 12-yard run to make it 21-6.
The Warriors pulled to within 21-13 on a 5-yard run from Sam Slivers in the fourth quarter, but never saw the ball again as Hurricane went on a 13-play drive to run the remainder of the clock out deep in Snow Canyon territory.
