Regis Comes from Behind to Defeat Mullen

The Regis Jesuit Raiders (4-0) came from behind on Friday night to defeat the visiting Mullen Mustangs (2-2) by a score of 30-21. The Raiders leaned on the dual-threat ability of sophomore quarterback Nicco Marchiol who threw for two touchdowns and also added two on the ground.

The Raiders got the first score of the game when Marchiol found senior wideout Ty Mcguire for a touchdown on their first possession of the game. However, Mullen quickly responded when senior tailback Damien Cearns raced 75 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 7.

Each team would trade a pair of punts before Marchiol would again pass for a touchdown, this time to junior tight-end Clay Nanke, early in the second quarter. Mullen would again answer the Regis score with a score of their own. Senior quarterback Kyle Remington would find sophomore Michael Brouillette in the endzone, tying the game at 14.

Mullen forced a Regis punt and got the ball back just before halftime. That is when Remington found senior Ben Marcoux for a 55-yard touchdown pass to give the Mustangs a lead going into the halftime locker room.

The Raiders got the ball to begin the second half and Marchiol used his legs to run in for a touchdown. However, there was a bad snap on the extra point attempt and Mullen remained in front 21-20.

Mullen was forced to punt on the next drive and Regis failed on a fourth down attempt from the Mullen 35-yard line. On the very next play Remington found Brouillette for a 29-yard gain and the Mustangs looked to add to their lead. However, the offense stalled, and kicker Wilson Yee missed a long 51-yard field goal attempt.

Regis regained possession and drove down the field. At the beginning of the fourth quarter kicker Jordi De La Torre made a 30-yard field goal that would put the Raiders ahead for good.

Marchiol added another rushing touchdown to seal the game for the Raiders, as they would outscore the Mustangs 16-0 in the second half and win by a final of 30-21.

Next up for the Mullen Mustangs will be a road game against the Grandview Wolves next Friday September 27that Legacy Stadium.

The Raiders will travel to Thornton to play Horizon on Thursday September 26th.

Cherry Creek Defense Shuts Out Mullen

The Cherry Creek Bruins (3-0) defense played well all night and stymied the Mullen offensive attack on their way to a 35-0 victory over the Mullen Mustangs (2-1).

The Bruins were able to stop the Mustang ground game all evening holding them to 8 rushing yards. They were also able to hold the Mustangs air attack in check, giving up only 133 yards through the air.

The Mustangs started off slowly but a fumble recovery by Jaxon Heil on a partially blocked punt set the Mustangs up with good field position, but like they did all night, the Bruins defense was able to prevent the Mustangs from scoring. Mullen was forced to punt.

Cherry Creek took the ball 80 yards on their first possession and scored their first touchdown of the game on a 5-yard pass from junior quarterback Julian Hammond III to junior wideout and #GonzoWatchList player Chase Penry.

Hammond III would pass for two more touchdowns before halftime, both too Gunnar Helm, giving the Bruins a 21-0 halftime lead.

The Mustangs had a chance to score before the half but had big plays called back due to penalties. One play senior tailback Damien Cearns had a big run but hurdled a defender, something that will draw a 15-yard penalty in High School. On the very next play sophomore Michael Brouillette caught a screen pass and took it for a sizeable gain but again it was called back because of a block in the back penalty by the Mustangs. The Mustangs tried a 4thdown run on 4thand 12 where senior Ryan Hearty gained 10-yards, but it was not enough, and the Mustangs turned it over on downs.

The Mustangs forced a turnover to begin the second half when senior Vince Difeo picked off a Julian Hammond III pass, setting the Mustangs up close to midfield. However, two plays later senior quarterback Kyle Remington bobbled a snap and Brandon Jackson recovered for Cherry Creek.

The Bruins capitalized on the turnover when Hammond found Jayle Stacks for a 15-yard touchdown pass. The Bruins would add on another passing touchdown in the third quarter when Hammond found James Walker for a 10-yard touchdown pass.

In the fourth quarter neither team scored, and the Bruins walked away victorious.

Next week Mullen will go on the road to face rival Regis Jesuit High School on Friday at 7 p.m.

Cherry Creek will be at home to face off against the Pomona Panthers, kickoff at 7 p.m.
