Warriors defend the Jaguars

LPS Stadium was the host of a defensive battle on Friday night as the Rock Canyon Jaguars bolted North to face the homecoming Arapahoe Warriors in another near sell out crowd. The alumni would witness some fantastic play in what might be considered a baseball score. Early in the contest each team would post the goose egg on the scoreboard as both teams struggled to produce on offense. It was not until 8:43 of Q2 that #99 Sawyer Zook would be called upon to strike a 19 yard field goal to put the Jaguars up 3-0 and that was the halftime score. The teams would change possessions numerous times and late in the 3rd quarter a drive that extended into Q4 would result in a missed opportunity of a FG by Zook. However, on defense Rock Canyon would produce a big sack that forced the Warriors out of the red zone and miss a FG wide left. Eventually Arapahoe would strike at the 8:09 mark as #8 Jake Hansen would reel in a 26 yard pass from #6 Kevin Lukasiewicz and add a PAT by Freshmen #3 Sebastian Pucher to go up 7-3 in their only points of the game. As the contest came to an end it was again the domination of each defense that was the storyline Friday night.

Big plays at crucial points of the game turned this nailbitter into a game of whom wanted it more. Each side was amped up and had a key player missing from their starting lineup. But for Arapahoe it was their defense that swarmed all night led by #13 Max Roose who had 5 tackles and 3 sacks and a key one down the stretch. Both teams have one non conference game before league play but this would be a nice rematch come November. All guys from both sides tackled well and the scoring summary says it all, the most points on the board at 0:00 won the ball game.
