Jeffco football highlights: Bear Creek wins big over Green Mountain
Alameda: The Pirates fell to 0-2 on the season but their record is not an indication of how good they have played.
Alameda suffered its second straight heartbreaking late-game loss, 33-29 to Denver West, Friday at Trailblazer Stadium. In week one Alameda fell to Skyview, 36-28.
The Pirates will try and turn those losses into wins when they play at Englewood Friday at 7 p.m.
Arvada: The Bulldogs finally found their mojo in the third quarter of their second game of the season but it wasn’t enough as they fell 31-18 at Englewood.
After being shut out the week before, Arvada looked good at times against Englewood, but just could not keep the Pirates out of the end zone.
Arvada (0-2) will host Skyview Friday at 4 p.m.
Arvada West: The Wildcats got their first victory of the season in style when they shut out Rock Canyon 14-0 on the road.
A-West responded to being shut out the previous week by producing an unbreakable defensive effort.
The Wildcats scored a pair of touchdowns in the second quarter, one a 30-yard rushing touchdown by senior Marcus Culhane.
A-West will host Chatfield Friday at 7 p.m. at North Area Athletic Complex.
Bear Creek/Green Mountain: After winning only two games all of last season, the Bears improved to 2-0 with a 38-20 victory over Green Mountain on Friday.
Bear Creek scored a total of 25 points in the second and third quarter and the Rams couldn’t keep up offensively.
It was the second consecutive game where the Bears scored at least 36 points.
Green Mountain also showed flashes of brilliance in the loss that included a 20-yard touchdown reception by senior Mitch Shafer.
The Rams (1-1) will host Golden Thursday at 7 p.m. Bear Creek will look to stay unbeaten when they host Mountain Vista Thursday at 4 p.m.
D’Evelyn: After scoring 95 total points in their first two wins of the season, the power went out for the Jaguars in their 42-7 loss to Holy Family on Saturday.
Holy Family scored 14 points in each of the first three quarters and D’Evelyn was left in the dust.
Senior Conner Mateer had a rushing touchdown for the Jaguars in the second quarter, but four turnovers doomed D’Evelyn’s chances for a win.
The Jaguars (2-1) will travel to Stocker Stadium where they will play Grand Junction Central Friday at 7 p.m.
Faith Christian: The Eagles improved to 2-1 with a monster 59-18 victory over Vista Peak Prep Friday at Faith Christian High School.
Senior running back Daniel Langewisch stole the show with his epic 125-yard rushing effort that was capped with four touchdowns.
The Eagles had 31 total first downs and scored 41 points in the second and third quarters, fuelling their blowout win.
Faith Christian (2-1) will travel to Kent Denver for a match up Friday at 3:30 p.m.
Golden: The rebuilding Demons suffered their second straight big loss when they were beaten by Dakota Ridge 51-0 Friday at Trailblazer Stadium.
Golden, led by first year head coach Jason Neely, struggled against Dakota Ridge who overwhelmed them offensively.
Neely, despite the blowout, remains positive and acknowledged that it will take some time for Golden to once again become a force in Jeffco football.
The Demons (0-2) will play Green Mountain Thursday at 7 p.m. at Trailblazer Stadium.
Jefferson: Even though their defense kept them in the game until its end the Saints fell to Sheridan 14-6 on Friday.
Jefferson players suffered their first loss of the season, after they threatened to tie the score late in the game.
But Sheridan’s surprising stout defense never cracked.
The Saints (2-1) are still off to an impressive start to their season and will try to build on it Saturday when they play at Denver Christian at 1 p.m.
Pomona: In a meeting between two of the best teams in the state Pomona fell to Cherry Creek Friday at North Area Athletic Complex, 19-15.
After a slow first half where only nine total points were scored both teams got it together in the second half.
However, Pomona couldn’t close the deal despite Chris Marquez’s big night.
The senior running back rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown, but Cherry Creek did just enough to slow the rest of the Panthers’ offense down.
The two teams could see each other again in the playoffs.
Pomona (1-1) will host Lakewood Saturday at 7:30 at NAAC.
Ralston Valley: After two big wins to open the season the Mustangs struggled in their 36-18 loss to ThunderRidge Saturday at North Area Athletic Complex.
ThunderRidge jumped on Ralston Valley early in the action and never let up. The Mustangs attempted to get back into the game, and if it wasn’t for sloppy play the game outcome could have been different.
The Mustangs (2-1) will travel to Grand Junction Friday at 7 p.m.
Wheat Ridge: The Farmers fell 45-18 at Monarch on Saturday, but there are positive to take from the loss.
Wheat Ridge got a glimpse at the reigning state champions and now has a measuring stick on what it takes to get to that level.
Monarch scored 14 points in each of the first three quarters before the Farmers started to get it going late.
The Farmers (1-1) will host Littleton Friday at 4 p.m.
