After months of waiting, this dream 1A semifinal match-up has finally arrived.

Duchesne has been licking its chops in anticipation of this game since mid September, whereas Kanab has been itching for it since last November.

For Duchesne, it's a chance to avenge a 26-22 regular season loss at Kanab about a month and a half ago. As for Kanab, it was embarrassed 30-0 in last year's 1A state championship game against Duchesne and that humbling has served as motivation all year.

It's a showdown of two great offenses and two solid defenses.

The Eagles will try and ride the legs of Tyler Reinhardt just like they did in the quarterfinals. In that game against North Sevier, the Duchesne running back racked 199 yards and four total touchdowns in the most dominant performance of his career.

Kanab is a much more balanced team offensively. It can move the ball through the air with the TJ Reidhead to Ty Bunting combination, whereas Levi Vincent and Reidhead are legitimate rushing threats.
