Balanced approach leads Castle View past Rock Canyon

Sabercats win 48-14 against Jaguars at Douglas County Stadium


Castle View scored early and often as the Sabercats rolled to a 48-14 Douglas County League football victory over the Rock Canyon Jaguars on Oct. 23 at Douglas County Stadium.

The Sabercats, 2-0, used a balanced offensive attack, which featured the running of senior backs Zane Wodark and Noah Jamero along with the passing of quarterback Johnny Colombi to post the easy victory.

“I thought we were balanced,” said Castle View head coach Todd Casebier. “We have tried to emphasize that this season. We had them guessing on what we were going to do.”

Castle View finished the game with 584 yards in total offense and it was well balanced. The Sabercats gained 292 yards on the ground and 292 via the pass.

Colombi was 10 of 13 passing for 292 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran for a score and had 20 rushing yards to wind up with 312 total yards.

Wodark gained 109 yards rushing with two touchdowns and also had three pass receptions for 38 yards. Jamero carried the ball 22 times and had 148 yards rushing.

Blake Haggerty had three receptions for 37 yards and one TD. Jens Anderson had two catches for 68 yards and both receptions were for Castle View touchdowns.

“We have two good backs and our quarterback can run too,” said Casebier. “Our quarterback is making good decisions. Our defense got the ball back for us which was important.”

A group of Castle View students were chanting “We want Valor” as the game progressed on the cold evening,

Castle View faces the perennial powerhouse and second-ranked Eagles team on Oct. 30 at Valor Christian.

“We've got it a lot tougher next week,” said Casebier. “We've got to play almost perfect.”

Rock Canyon played better in the second half but could not come back after falling behind 21-0.

The Jaguars scored when Croix Burney returned a blocked field goal for a TD and Vann Schield added a running score.

Senior running back Brendan Biondino rushed for 124 yards on 19 carries for the Jaguars. Jack Emery and Jack Zilligen led the Rock Canyon defense. Emery finished with 12 total tackles and Zilligen had 10.
