In workmanlike style, the
Columbine Rebels methodically took care of the Doherty Spartans 27-7. In the first quarter, Rebel QB Kyler
Brady started the scoring with a twenty-one yard touchdown run, making the score
7-0 Rebels. In the second quarter,
senior RB Orenzo Davis, in what is becoming a weekly occurrence, took off on a
fifty-one yard sprint and score to make it 14-0. Later in the second quarter, Chad
Korodaj banged in from the one to score, the PAT failed, making the score going
in at half 20-0 Columbine.
In the second half, Davis would
add his second run for a score of the night going twenty-eight yards. This time the PAT was good making it
That would more than enough
points for a Rebel defense that controlled the Doherty option game and more
importantly kept All-League runner Darius Turner in check. The speedy Turner did get loose one time
for a seventy yard score, but other than that, he was contained. The Columbine defensive effort was
bolstered by interceptions from Nathan Wiggins and Brian Birkeness.
The Rebels rolled and look for
more of the same as they take on Lewis-Palmer next. For the season, Columbine has won on
average by a margin of 33-9.
Doherty first year coach Matt Wibbles and his squad are sitting at 1-2. A
win at Lakewood is much needed to help salvage the season.
The Columbine D held Darius
Turner, one of Colorado’s most explosive backs, in check all night. The
twenty-seven points surrendered by Columbine this season have come late in games
that were already over, if the starters were still in, that total would be
less. With multiple D1 players and
solid performers at every position, this D is scary good. Add in an offense that eats clock like a
snack and points will continue to be scarce for Columbine opponents.
