Valor keeps Pan­thers down

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - Kyle New­man and Nick Groke, The Den­ver Post

The cham­pi­onship re­match wasn’t quite the slugfest many were ex­pect­ing. Af­ter Valor Chris­tian’s two firstquar­ter scores, the Pan­thers’ side­line and crowd went flat, and the anx­i­ety was pal­pa­ble as Pomona headed into half­time down three scores. The Ea­gles then ran the clock in the sec­ond half, and the game was out of reach by the time Dy­lan McCaf­frey ran for a 9-yard score with 1:28 to play in the third.

• Broom­field had Pine Creek on the ropes early. A long punt by Luke Coff­man was fum­bled by the re­turner and Broom­field got the ball back. But the Ea­gles didn’t score. The loss didn’t change how their coach felt. “I love my Ea­gles,” coach Blair Hub­bard said. “They’re a gritty group of guys.”
