Posted

The Pirates surprised Jeffco football by blowing out Jefferson 68-12 Friday at Trailblazer Stadium.

Alameda starts off its season with a victory over a Jefferson program that qualified for the state playoffs last season.

The Saints lost several key players to graduation and growing pains, like the pain Alameda imposed last Friday, was to be expected.

The Pirates (1-0) will play at Skyview Friday at 7 p.m.

The Saints (0-1) will try and regroup with a victory over Rifle who they will host Friday at 6 p.m. at Trailblazer Stadium.

The Bulldogs dropped a nail biter to Sheridan falling 33-25 Friday at Sheridan High School.

Sheridan’s home field proved to be the difference in a game that could have went either way and Arvada fell to 0-2 on the young season.

In the loss Arvada sophomore quarterback Ian Coleman passed for 374 yards and four touchdowns. But a couple untimely interceptions ended up costing the Bulldogs down the stretch.

Arvada will play at Berthoud Friday at 7 p.m.

The Wildcats started off the season with an impressive 32-19 victory over Douglas County Friday at North Area Athletic Complex.

It was also the first win of the Brad Pyatt era, as A-West hired the first year head coach in the offseason.

Arvada West trailed after the first quarter but went on to score 20 unanswered points over the next two quarters to secure the victory.

The Wildcats (1-0) will play at Smoky Hill Saturday at 6 p.m.

The Jaguars started off their season with a 34-0 blowout victory over Weld Central Saturday at Trailblazer Stadium.

D’Evelyn senior running back Ian Lewis ran wild compiling 215 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

On the other side of the ball senior Mike Trimble was all over the field Friday night, recording 11 tackles (two for a loss).

The Jaguars (1-0) will play at Greeley West Friday at 7 p.m.

The Rams rallied but still fell to Greeley Central 31-24 Saturday at Greeley Central High School.

The Wildcats took a 14-3 first quarter lead putting Green Mountain in a hole. But behind senior running back Chance Boyce, rushing for 180 yards and three touchdowns, the team almost came back.

But the Rams couldn’t close the gap as Greeley Central scored a backbreaking fourth quarter touchdown.

Green Mountain (0-1) will play Golden Friday at 4 p.m. at Jeffco Stadium.

The Farmers have started off their season with two monsters victories with the latest coming in a 49-0 beatdown Friday at Littleton High School.

But more impressive is the fact that Wheat Ridge is yet to give up a single point through two games this season. The Farmers opened their season with a 42-0 victory over Pueblo Central and after Friday’s win have outperformed their opposition 91-0 this season.

Credit new head coach Dan Reardon with Wheat Ridge’s impressive start, but it will be interesting to see if the Farmers can maintain their high level of play.

Wheat Ridge (2-0) will host Pueblo South next Thursday at 7 p.m. at Jeffco Stadium.
