BOUNTIFUL -- The Weber Warriors were feeling right at home in Bountiful Friday night, powering past the Viewmont Vikings 20-6.

The Vikings were hoping that the old adage "there's no place like home" rings true as they have dropped their first two games at home by a combined score of 71-6. The Warriors, meanwhile, flexed their muscle from the opening kick. Controlling the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball was key in the Warriors' victory.

The Warriors now look forward to their home opener with Davis. Warriors coach Rick Corbridge likes the way his team is playing.

"Tonight was a great win for us. Our offense moved the early and our defense sealed the win for us," he said.

Senior quarterback Jantz Arbon ran wild in the first half ,amassing over half of the Warriors' total yardage and scoring on a 60-yard run also on a 1-yard touchdown plunge.

Running back Christian Thomas also found the end zone on a 14-yard romp right before half that eventually put the game out of reach.

Warrior defensive back Cory Hart had an outstanding performance, recording three second-half interceptions as well as blocking a punt that set up Thomas' touchdown.

The Vikings threatened several times in the first half, but were forced to settle for Carson Shepard's 38- and 39-yard field goals.
