Prep Roundup: Bears roll to their third victory
EDGEWATER — Tyler Bosshardt had touchdown receptions of 22, 4 and 25 yards, and Rifle dominated from the first half on during the fourth-ranked Bears’ 64-6 nonleague victory over Jefferson on Friday night.
Rifle (3-0), which led 49-0 at halftime, also got a 55-yard interception return for a touchdown from Davy Fugita in the first half. Brock Clark also had a pair of rushing touchdowns, and quarterback Layton Stutsman finished 6-of-8 passing for 160 yards and his three TD strikes to Bosshardt.
“The last three weeks, we’ve had to make three hour trips to play a game,” said Rifle coach Damon Wells, whose team defeated Grand County in Moab, Utah, 56-6 on Aug. 29. “We’re just happy that we’ve had this much success.
“Credit the kids from Jefferson,” the coach continued. “They played hard.”
Rifle has a bye week in the week coming before the Bears play their homecoming game on Sept. 19 against Eagle Valley.
