Faith Christian (8-1) capped off their regular season with a solid victory over D'Evelyn (5-4) 43-31. The Eagles also accumulated their 4th straight Flatirons Conference Championship in the process, going undefeated in conference play. The 16 seniors of Faith can feel proud that they have claimed the conference crown every season during their time at Faith Christian, but what they really want is a state championship. Coach Siravo and his crew can be pleased with eight wins but they really need four more in the month of November to fulfill tthat final goal.
The Nov. 1 matchup with league rival D'Evelyn has been for the conference crown for the last three years and this game was no different. The two teams featured differing styles of play as the Jaguars love to throw the ball and feature wideouts coming from all over the field. Faith loves the ground-and-pound style of offense and methodical running attack.
The Eagles enjoyed ground domination, rushing for more than 400 yards, including 225 yards and three touchdowns from senior running back Erick Granados. Quarterback Isaiah Kroll add 99 yards and a touchdown as did Joel Burck who rushed for 101 yards and a score. Junior Jon Randall added a special teams touchdown by returning a kickoff —his fifth special teams score on the year. D'Evelyn added points in the second half but got no closer than 10 during the game. The Eagles defensive effort was not to be forgotten as they intercepted the Jaguars four times, including two snags by Seth Sperger. The Eagles defense has been consistent all season allowing the fewest points in 2A Football coming into the game.
The playoffs now await the Eagles where 16 teams will make the 2A state playoffs. The Eagles will learn their opponent on Sunday, November 3rd and will know their road ahead. The playoffs will start Nov. 9, and continue every Saturday until the championship game at CSU-Pueblo on the Nov. 30.
Nathan Mauldin is the assistant athletic director for Faith Christian.
