Snow beats Eastern Arizona 48-3
 October 27, 2012


EPHRAIM, Utah—The Snow College Badgers ran their record to 8-1 with a dominating 48 - 3 win over the Eastern Arizona Gila Monsters on Saturday afternoon. The tenth-ranked Badgers exploded for 24 points in the second quarter including a pair of Breon Allen scoring runs to put the game out of reach before halftime.

     Allen (Daytona Beach, Fla.), second in the nation averaging 152 rushing yards per game, finished with 172 yards on 24 carries and scored from eight and 12 yards out in the second period. Allen sat out much of the third and all of the fourth quarter.

     Snow finished with 501 yards of total offense, 261 on the ground and 240 through the air. Quarterback Christian Stewart (Orem, Utah) balanced out Allen’s running with 13-of-20 passing including three touchdown passes. Stewart hit tight end Evan Moeai (Orem, Utah) from 10 yards out two minutes before halftime, and then teamed up with wide out Damond Powell (Toledo, Ohio) for third quarter scores from 79 and four yards. Powell ended up with four receptions for 124 yards.

     Eastern Arizona had 173 yards of total offense, much of that coming on a gritty 66-yard run by Lorenzo Getties to set up the only Gila Monster score, a 28-yard field goal by Jordan Spangler early in the third quarter. Betties finished with 101 yards on 10 carries. The Gila Monsters’ lone pass completion of the day went for 45 yards from Deron Thompson to Jamal Satchell on the first play of the final period.

     Running back Jeffie Johnson (Columbus, Ohio) had the last touchdown for Snow, running in from eight yards out in the final period. Spencer Groner (Littleton, Colo.) was perfect on field goal attempts hitting from 33 and 38 yards, the second coming with only three seconds remaining before halftime. Chris Van Orden (Salt Lake City), who leads the nation in punting, averaged 41 yards on three punts, each one pinning the Gila Monsters inside the 20.

     The Badgers are now 6-0 in Western States Football League play and will finish with road games against Phoenix College and Arizona Western. The Gila Monsters drop to 3-6 overall and 1-6 in WSFL play.
