Good job Stansbury. You beat the #4 Team from the Region by ONE point.
Grantsville Cowboy Football is for real this year. It's not that Stansbury
didn't play well, it's just that Grantsville has finally found their
tempo. Stansbury escaped with this one, you got to give credit for #19 Tarl
Lewis, freshman kicker for the Cowboys, and No.6 Kelby Landon, who hasn't
taken a snap until the 5th game of the season. Last night showed that
Grantsville is a team to be reckoned with and that Stansbury isn't as good
as they think they are. Grantsville 13, Stansbury 14. Cowboys are for real this
year, and so is Stansbury! Great job to both teams last night, it was a fun game
to watch. COWBOY PRIDE!!!
Seriously, I don't think that the person above me knows how rivalry
football works. It's completely different stuff. Those games have nothing
to do with ranks, it has to do with how each team plays. Stansbury played flat
all game and the score proved it, grantsville played the game of their lives and
also had a little extra help from the strips. If anyone knows the story between
these two they'll know that that was a great game. Stansbury had 2 wins
that night, one against grantsville, one against the refs. which grantsville is
famous for having questionable officiating. Heck of a game by both teams, if
grantsville plays like that they can beat anyone, if stansbury plays like that,
they'll get hammered by anyone.
Rivalry games are almost always closer than anticipated, and last night's
game was no different. This was an awesome game start to finish. Grantsville
came out very ready, but fell just short. Officiating was very inconsistent, and
both teams fought like crazy. Glad I could be a part of that amazing atmosphere.
Curious Calls? The only bad call of the game was that no-call pass interference
in the end zone that costed the cowboys a TD. Look at the replay on HUDL.com and
you can clearly see the defender hit the receiver before the ball even got to
him. Stansbury fans just whines about the officials "helping" because
little Grantsville almost beat them. Grantsville Defense was the reason the
score was so low... it wasn't because Stansbury played flat all game. Give
the cowboys some credit!
@K.A.C.There were definitely some questionable calls in that game.
The personal foul on the first field goal attempt stands out as one. No one ever said that Grantsville didn't play well. Curtis Ware called an
excellent game defensively and Grantsville followed it almost exactly how they
were supposed to. It didn't help the Stallions' case that they played
their worst game of the year, but the Cowboys played very well. Stansbury was
just the better team, and the better team almost always finds a way to win close
games like that. If I were a high ranked team I would hate to play Grantsville
in the first round of the playoffs. They're a good team that could surprise
It's an uphill road for Grantsville in the playoffs if they want their
rematch with Stansbury. First round Juan Diego, if the Defense can play like
they did this game, then the Cowboys have a chance to keep it close, and make an
upset. If they beat JD, then they run into Hurricane again and must beat them to
play Stansbury again, assuming they (Stansbury) win the High-Scoring match up
with Dixie, and if Union doesn't pull an upset first round. Here's a
Cowboy Fan that wishes the Stallions and Cowboys good luck in the playoffs!
Looks to be a very intense contest in 3A! Alot of teams could win it all!
