With a solid offensive performance and a strong showing from a defense that kept Darius Turner and the Doherty O in check, Columbine remains unbeaten.

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 27-0 Rebels. 


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.


Bottom Line:

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.


Game Ball:

The Columbine D held Darius Turner, one of Colorado‚Äôs 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.
