Cannon County put together a solid second half but it wasn’t enough in a 34-2 setback against York Friday (Oct. 25).

Jonathon Smith recorded a safety for the only points for Cannon County. He also recovered a fumble. Freshman Micah Fonoti also recovered a fumble for the Lions. B.J. Daniel had 14 tackles, followed by Smith with 8.

Cannon County had opportunities early but turnovers and stalled drives continued to plaque the Lions, who lost starting quarterback Josh Walkup after halftime.

The Lions play host to Upperman Friday for Senior Night. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Schwartz Field.
