’Dogs, Warriors run to victories on the road
Travis Fehlman scored three touchdowns and Jake Appling passed to Matt Young for another Friday as the Palisade High School football team defeated Eagle Valley 36-14 in Gypsum.
The Bulldog offense was without the services of fullback Aaron Wagler, who broke his hand this week, and Zach Adair, still recovering from a knee injury sustained two weeks ago.
Fehlman picked up the slack, however, running for 104 yards. The Bulldogs (4-0, 2-0 Class 3A Western Slope Conference) were led in rushing by Jesse Brannon, who had 121 yards and scored Palisade’s final touchdown.
Appling had two first-half interceptions on defense.
In Aurora, Central scored three touchdowns in the first quarter in rolling past Gateway 38-6.
The Warriors (2-1) got rushing touchdowns from running back Nolan Curtis (3 yards), quarterback Holden Reed (1 yard) and slotback Clay Kame (8 yards) after a 37-yard Jeff Krizman field goal to lead 24-0 after the first quarter.
Reed and Kame both scored in the second quarter.
Reed completed 15 of 22 passes for 147 yards and led the rushing effort with 79 yards.
Defensively Central held Gateway to 43 yards rushing.
Montrose earned its second consecutive shutout as it defeated Adams City 54-0 on the road and held the Eagles to 26 yards total offense. Durango lost its third consecutive game, falling at home to Aztec, N.M., 52-12.
In the 3A WSC, Glenwood Springs kept pace with Palisade and remained unbeaten with a 42-14 victory at Delta. Moffat County picked up a 43-31 road victory over Battle Mountain. The Steamboat Springs offense was in gear as the Sailors downed Montezuma-Cortez 60-20 on the road.
