1A football preview: Parowan at Rich

Parowan (3-7, 1-3) at Rich (6-3, 4-0)

1A State Tournament quarterfinal

Saturday, 1 p.m.

Parry's Power Guide: Rich by 20

All-time series: Rich leads 3-2.

Last meeting: 2007 Week 6, Rich won 28-24

If Sept. 28 is any indicator, this quarterfinal game should be pretty good. In that nonregion game a month ago, Rich running back Tyler Satterthwaite scored on a 30-yard touchdown run with four minutes left as Rich rallied for the victory. It was the Rebels' second victory in their current six game winning streak.

Rich started the year with consecutive losses against Mountain Crest JV, Kemmerer, Wyo., and West Side, Idaho, but since then it's been unbeatable behind the running duo of Satterthwaite and quarterback Bradley Holmes. Against Parowan earlier this year Holmes accounted for two rushing scores and 107 yards.

As for Parowan, that disappointing loss sent the Rams reeling. They lost three straight by at least three touchdowns after falling narrowly at Rich, and didn't taste victory against until last week's regular-season finale against Layton Christian.

If the the Rams are to get back on track against the No. 2 team in 1A, quarterback Nick Wood needs to establish himself with both the run and the pass. That's easier said than done against a Rich defense only allowing 13.8 ppg.
