EPHRAIM - In what was billed as a tough match up of top 10 teams, the Snow College football team rolled over Glendale Community College 45-14 at Badger Stadium Saturday.
No. 1 Snow wasted little time, scoring on its first drive with a 22-yard touchdown run by Soni Sotele. The Badgers followed that up with a field goal and a 33-yard interception return for a touchdown by sophomore linebacker Josh Sharp from Emery High School.
That interception was one of three turnovers forced by Snow in the first half. Quarterback Houston Erbstoesser hit receivers Adam Frandsen and Kimball Burton for touchdowns to take a 31-0 lead into halftime.
In the second half, Erbstoesser hit receiver Adam Frandsen for a 78-yard touchdown pass. Snow finished its scoring with 14 minutes left in the fourth quarter when Erbstoesser hit sophomore Troy Cummings for a 9-yard touchdown to make the score 45-0.
That was a statement game, said head coach Steve Coburn. The defensive line just dominated. When our line plays well, we win games.
Coburn said Snow played well on both sides of the ball.
Weve been waiting for a breakout game from our receivers, said Coburn. We have a great corps of receivers that can change games for us.
Erbstoesser finished the game 19-28 for 239 yards and 4 touchdowns, en route to 419 total yards for the Badgers. Frandsen, a Box Elder High School graduate, led Snow receivers with four catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns. Sotele led Snows ground attach with 92 yards and a touchdown.
Glendale added two late touchdowns to make the game 45-14. The win moved Snow to 7-0 overall and 4-0 in Western States Football League play.
Snow travels to Pima Community College (Arizona) Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m.
