Wildcats shuffle positions to earn win over Central

The Fruita Monument High School football team started two safeties with little to no varsity experience Friday night against Central because it had to.
The Wildcats pulled starting quarterback Kyle Fineran away from kickoff and punt return duties because an injury necessitated it. The team’s backup QB was sidelined this week.
Fruita has lost five starters on defense to injury as well as sophomore quarterback Zach Rush, who started the Wildcats’ first two games this season.
But the Wildcats, led by a close-knit group of senior captains, pulled away from the Warriors after a tight first quarter for a 44-28 nonconference victory at Stocker Stadium.
It helped that Fruita, with a 1-3 record before the game, flew under the radar.
