Snowflake 22 Safford 7

Snowflake took advantage of a Safford turnover with 1 minute remaining and David Brimhall capped of a 4 play drive with a 19 yard run, the 2 point conversion was good and the Lobos led 8-0 at the halftime.
The Bulldog defense stood strong in the 3rd quarter but eventually tired and gave up another Lobo run touchdown, this time from Brig Turley, the PAT attempt was blocked and Snowflake led 14-0.
The Lobos tacked on another Brimhall TD run in the 4th quarter to lead 22-0. Safford had one last chance when they got the football back with under a minute left. The Dogs put together their best drive of the night and capped it off with a 12 yard TD pass from Mason Duros to Jerick Arbizo as time expired. Justin Torrio added the PAT to make the final score 22-7.
