Football roundup: Holy Family tops Mead to stay undefeated


MEAD - The dynamic duo of David Sommers and Jared DeHerrera helped the Holy Family Eagles top Mead 42-20 on Friday.

Sommers, who had 429 total yards, threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more. DeHerrera continued his terror on the ground, running for 166 yards and two touchdowns.

Ryan Schafer also had six catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns to help Holy Family improve to 3-0.

“Our kids work very hard every week to play within our developed game plan and `do their job’,” Holy Family’s coach Mike Gabriel said. “I think they did both of those things Friday night.”

The Eagles did most of their damage in the third quarter. Sommers found Schafer for a score and then Sommers and DeHerrera each scored a rushing touchdown in the quarter.

Defensively, Jason Martinez led the Eagles with 13 tackles and both Zach Trombley and Daniel Jansen were credited with a sack.

“Our success is a direct reflection of these kids,” Gabriel said. “The kids never expected anything but success and so far they have earned it. The challenge now is to keep earning that success week in and week out.”

Mountain Range 49, Greeley West 14

GREELEY - Gabe Gellespie ran for three touchdowns and Andrew Wamsley threw for two more to help the Mustangs improve to 3-0.

Wamsley and Tom Commander set the tone early by connecting on an 80-yard touchdown pass on the opening drive.

Commander added another touchdown on the ground, while Preston Deherrera also had a touchdown run.

Mountain Range returns home to host Grand Junction on Friday.

Standley Lake 21, Greeley Central 13

GREELEY - Jordan Downing had two second-half touchdowns to help the Gators rally to beat the Wildcats.

Downing, who had 160 rushing yards, gave Standley Lake the lead for good in the third quarter after scoring on a two-yard run. He sealed the game with a 1-yard plunge in the fourth.

Quarterback Jacob Naranjo and Matt Fujinami connected for a 32-yard touchdown pass for the Gators first score in the second quarter.

The road gets much tougher for Standley Lake, which hosts Smoky Hill on Friday. The Buffaloes, who lost to Gateway in the season opener, have outscored their previous two opponents, 79-19.

Thornton 50, Adams City 0

THORNTON -The Trojans scored 35 points in the opening half to cruise to an easy win over the Eagles.

Keynan Huguley had 177 rushing yards and three touchdowns, while Marcus Del Hierro threw for 122 yards and two touchdowns. Del Hierro also hooked up with Bryan Weingarten on a 90-yard touchdown pass.

Arvada 41, Skyview 7

THORNTON - The Wolverines were held to 73 total yards and their lone touchdown came from their defense.

Nose tackle Juan Gallardo intercepted an errant pass in the third quarter and returned it 46 yards for a touchdown for Skyview’s lone touchdown.

The road doesn’t get easier for the Wolverines, who host Faith Christian this week.

Bennett 52, The Pinnacle 0

BENNETT - The Timberwolves had no answer for Bennett’s power running attack, which had 323 yards on the ground.

Bennett’s Caleb Copeland rushed for 123 yards and three touchdowns, while Tommy Tintorri had 118 yards and one touchdown.

The Timberwolves offense was stagnate, with only 151 total yards and two turnovers.

David Kerley led Pinnacle’s defense with 11 tackles.

The Academy 35, Sheridan 12

WESTMINSTER - The Wildcats earned their first win of the season, topping the Rams.

The Academy improved to 1-3 and will have a week off before facing The Pinnacle.

FEDERAL HEIGHTS - The Eagles dropped to 0-4 after losing to the Tigers on Friday.

Rocky Mountain Lutheran only had 115 total yards, all on the ground.
