Kane Zuehl had 23 carries for 100 yards, and Rylan Barnes had 7 catches for 94 yards. Barnes also lead the defense with 6 tackles. West Hancock is now 10-0, and plays host to North Linn Friday night in the quarterfinals, with a trip to the Dome on the line. Kevin Wilson and Jay Hiscocks will have the live play by play on KIOW, B103, as well as on the West Hancock video stream.
