"Our kids really stepped up tonight," said Weber coach Rich Murray. "Our offensive line had a great game and without those guys the other players wouldn't have had such a good night."
The smaller Weber offensive line controlled the line of scrimmage, opening holes all night for Daines and the rest of the Weber running backs.
"All we wanted to do was control the line against them," said senior lineman Nate Elmer. "We knew it would be tough because they are bigger than us. I don't mind that we don't get the credit. We like not getting the credit."
The first quarter resembled a track meet with the Lancers taking the opening kickoff and marching 65 yards in seven plays to take their only lead of the night 6-0. Both squads moved the ball well in the opening period but were unable to punch it into the end zone, that is until Daines broke loose on his first TD of the night, a 58-yard run with just over a minute to play in the quarter.
The Warriors scored on their next two possessions, including a 67-yard run by Daines that gave Weber some breathing room. After a blocked punt deep in Layton territory, Adams and Daines hooked up for a 20-yard score giving Weber a comfortable 21-6 halftime lead.
After a 27-yard Keaton Scherer field goal midway through the third period, Layton fought back to pare the deficit at 24-13 with an 80-yard 15 play scoring drive capped by an Adam Bunting 1-yard run.
Weber closed the scoring with exactly one minute to play when Adams found Shaun Shaw in the end zone for a 6-yard scoring strike.
