Fort Collins brings home first win against 4A foe.

It may not have been the prettiest game but in a 4A Vs. 5A matchup the Fort Collins Lambkins prevailed over Longmont 12-8.  Longmont used their ball control offense to move out to an 8-7 halftime lead.  The lone touchdown on the evening for Fort Collins came in the first half as junior receiver Hayden Ahlbrandt caught a quick out for a score.  Ahlbrandt would add the extra point.


The second half saw the Lambkin defense make big stops on multiple fourth down attempts by Longmont.  Each defensive stop was important as the Fort Collins offense could never get on track.  Eventually, senior QB Scott Evans was replaced and athletic Cody Donaldson took over the signal calling duties.  Although the O did not score, Fort Collins did get some ball movement with Donaldson at the helm.  Fort Collins mustered five points in the second stanza with a Hayden Ahlbrandt field goal and a safety off of a Chance Crawford punt block.


Bottom Line: 

By next week Fort Collins needs to find some offense as they host Cherry Creek.  One touchdown a field goal and a safety will not be enough points against Jack Elway and his creek offense.  Longmont will not have much time to worry about the close loss as they host league foe Niwot next week.

The Fort Collins defense made plays when needed and held a solid Longmont team in
