Prep Football Roundup: Titans crush Meeker, 39-20

Building a big lead early, Coal Ridge’s football team leveled its record at 1-1 with a 39-20 win over visiting Meeker on Friday.

“It’s a really great feeling,” said first-year Titans coach Kyle Sager, whose team went up 19-0 after a quarter and never looked back in helping him to his first head-coaching win. “The boys really, really did well. It was awesome.”

Michael Shaw had a pair of rushing scores for Coal Ridge. Chris Contreras and Raul Oyarzabal also scored via the ground and Christian Keith returned an interception for a touchdown.

Next up for Coal Ridge is a trip to Gunnison next week.

Roaring Fork took a second-half beating at Aspen on Friday, losing to the host Skiers by a 28-7 count.

“They just kept hammering at us,” Rams coach Tory Jensen said. “Aspen’s a well-disciplined, well-coached team, and we didn’t really have any answers to that in the second half.”

Quarterback Tanner Nieslanik ran in a 7-yarder to account for Roaring Fork’s lone score.

Monte Vista (2-0) is next for the Rams, who dropped into the 1A classification for football this season.

“It’ll be kind of like a 1A playoff game for us,” said Jensen, who’s team is now 1-1. “We get to find out where we’re at in the 1A world. … We’ll regroup, get our act together and make it happen. The kids are all ready to learn. They didn’t quit from this.”


Grand Valley improved to 2-0 with a 38-13 win over visiting Paonia on Friday.

The Cardinals exploded early, taking a 26-0 lead after a quarter.

Next up for Grand Valley is a trip to Olathe next week, where they’ll face the 0-2 Pirates.
