Demons crush Bulldogs

CRAIG, Colorado – The air was chilly Friday night at the Bulldog Proving Grounds. But, a visiting team whose name suggested a warmer climate still managed to heat up the competition for the Moffat County High School homecoming game.

MCHS varsity football lost 34-14 in its matchup against the Demons of Glenwood Springs, 2-4 overall, 1-2 in the Western Slope League.

The first quarter was slow going for both teams within the first 10 minutes of the game, as neither managed to gain substantial ground.

But Glenwood dug in and camped out at the goal line, pushing against the Bulldog defense until the Demon offense put up the first touchdown of the game.

Moffat County looked to even up the score at the beginning of the second, but an unsuccessful field goal attempt was the closest they got before surrendering the ball.

Junior Bubba Ivers put the Bulldogs on the board, 13-7, with a quarterback sneak from the 11 yard line.

After Glenwood answered back swiftly with a third touchdown it took them little time to get back on offense. But, the Bulldogs looked primed to score again, with junior Garrett Stewart recovering a Glenwood fumble.

Unfortunately, the team ended the half on a low note, when the Demons intercepted the ball right back, leading to another eight points in the visitor’s column, putting the score at 27-7 at halftime.

Head coach Kip Hafey said the game was an example of the Bulldogs playing tough but not at their full potential.

“They came out and they played really hard. I’m really proud of them. Glenwood got some good scores against us, when we had the opportunity to catch the ball, we dropped it. Those are just things you can’t do. You’ve got to execute and follow through.”
