Football w/video: Adams City captures homecoming win

Nick Hackney

Adams City topped Skyview 34-18 Sept. 17 in the Eagles' homecoming game.

The first quarter went scoreless as both teams were trying to find their groove. The groove was indeed found on both sides, as the second quarter was a shootout from both sidelines. The Eagles ended up striking first on a goal-line rushing touchdown from quarterback Levi Deaguero to get things started. The Wolverines responded with two separate connections from quarterback Bryson Gutierrez and wide receiver Sam Cortez. Both Wolverine scores left attempts at two-point conversions that were no good, as the score sat 12-7 in Skyview's favor.

Deaguero drove the Eagles down the field with little time left in the first half, which ended up in a passing touchdown to wide receiver Ricardo Hernandez (a 42-yard touchdown), to put the Eagles back on top, after a failed 2-point attempt, at 13-12. Just as both teams thought the half was over, Danny Reyes of the Wolverines had other plans. He took the kickoff to the house -- a 90-yard effort up the west sideline -- as time expired in the first half, leaving the Eagles trailing 18-13.

Adams City came out strong in the third quarter, led by Deaguero. He found his way into the end zone on another rushing touchdown in the red zone. A successful misdirection two-point attempt, put the Eagles back on top 21-18. Later in the third, Deaguero  fou d  his way into the end zone yet again off of a rushing touchdown in the red zone from the 1 yard line.

Entering the fourth quarter, the Eagles Defense stopped all of the Wolverines' momentum.

“We preached on stopping their offense and come together as a team. We really came together,”  AC head coach, Wade Auld said.

The Eagles' offense managed a lengthy, seven-minute drive late in the fourth quarter, resulting in another rushing touchdown from Deaguero to cap off a four rushing touchdown game .

“This game, we came in focusing on doing our job and trusting in our teammates,” said the junior quarterback. "It was a really big confidence-builder.”

Deaguero completed six of seven passes for 71 yards and one touchdown. The Eagles will head across the road to take on non-conference opponent Northfield High school, September 23rd at 4 p.m. at All-City Stadium at Denver South High School. It's also Northfield's homecoming.
