It was not pretty, but Fort Collins needs any win they can get if they want to stay in contention for the Front Range Crown.

It was not pretty, but if you are a team that is sitting at five hundred and you are trying to keep pace with the upper half of your league any win is a good win.  Friday night in Front Range action, the Fort Collins Lambkins held on to defeat Northglenn 12-7 in a game that came down to the last possession. 

 

Fort Collins lost two fumbles, had numerous penalties and generally could not get anything going in the first half.  Taking advantage of this, Northglenn was able to score on a short counter boot pass to take the lead into half 7-0.

 

In the third quarter, Lambkin speedster Hans Broman was able to get uncorked scoring two touchdowns.  On the evening, the 5-11 185 pound senior rushed for over 160 yards.  The two third quarter scores looked to be enough to win it.  Until with 2:50 left in the game Fort Collins had to punt to Northglenn.  After a nice return, the Norsemen were able to move the ball deep into Lambkin territory.  On fourth and one, coach Mike Marquez dialed up the counter boot pass that had gotten the score earlier.  The pass just was slightly long and Fort Collins dodged the bullet and brought home the win.

 

Bottom Line:

Fort Collins continues to struggle with consistency on offense.  The first half turnovers put 1-4 Northglenn in the rare position of being ahead.  Next week as they take on a good Legacy squad, the Lambkins will need to take care of the ball.

 

Game Ball:

Broman’s 160 yards rushing and two scores were the difference.  Now that the senior running back is healthy maybe he can breathe some life into the Fort Collins O.
