Connor Halonen helps Gonzaga Prep roll over Shadle Park

From staff reports

Connor Halonen rushed for 128 yards with a touchdown and threw two TD passes and Gonzaga Prep (4-1) rolled over Shadle Park (1-3) 56-13 in a nonleague game between Greater Spokane League members at Albi Stadium on Friday.

Halonen went 6 of 7 for 113 yards passing.

Shadle Park actually scored first, as the Highlanders took the opening possession of the game 15 plays and 70 yards, culminating with Xavier Wicks 2-yard touchdown run. Wicks finished with 131 yards rushing on 24 carries.

But on Prep’s first play, Halonen busted for a 60-yard touchdown run and the Bullpups were off to the races.

Halonen connected later in the first quarter with Eric Floyd on a 19-yard touchdown pass, and with Devin Culp from 18 yards for another score.

In the second quarter, Halonen hit Sam Lockett for a 39-yard completion before Kasey Anthony carried in from the 1 to make it 28-7.

Anthony added a 2-yard TD run in the third quarter and Ila Pinkham had a 1-yard plunge in the fourth.

Anthony carried 13 times for 104 yards with a pair of scores, and Devin Culp rushed six times for 118 yards.
