Minico 28, Pocatello 7
RUPERT — The Spartans improved 7-0 overall and 3-0 in the Great Basin Conference east pod after the home win over Pocatello.
“Our defense was awesome, and our seniors were all over the field tonight,” said Minico coach Keelan McCaffrey. “Kasen Jones had a huge tackle in the third quarter at the goal line that caused a turnover on downs.”
Minico junior quarterback Connor Stocking was 8-of-15 for 161 yards and completed an 89-yard pass to Rylan Chandler for a touchdown. Chandler finished with four receptions for 133 yards, and he picked up 73 yards on 10 rushes, including a touchdown run of seven yards. Senior Colter May rushed for 81 yards on 12 carries and scored on two short runs.
The Minico defense caused three turnovers. Jerik Smith and Carson Schow each had interceptions, and Francisco Paz stripped the ball from a Pocatello player and recovered it.
“Looking ahead to the game on Friday against Century, we can’t be too high or too low,” said McCaffrey.
Minico will face the No. 5-ranked Diamondbacks at Holt Arena in the battle of the two unbeaten teams in the GBC east standings.
