Columbine Remains Unbeaten with Victory Over Mullen

The Columbine Rebels (6-0, 1-0) remain undefeated after a victory over the host Mullen Mustangs (2-4, 0-1). The Rebels controlled the game for much of the night and emerged victorious, beating the Mustangs 43-3.

The Rebels did what they do best, run the football, and scored 21 points in the 3rdquarter to pull away from the Mustangs.

It took just two offensive plays for the Rebels to reach the endzone. Columbine’s running back Adam Harrington ran the ball in from 39 yards out to give the Rebels a lead they would not relinquish.

Mullen would respond with a 16-play drive that resulted in a Wilson Yee 42-yard field goal. That drive was aided by 3 Columbine penalties, 1 on fourth down and 2 on third down to give the Mustangs offense a fresh set of downs.

Columbine’s quarterback, senior Jadon Holliday, would find Harrington in the endzone with 1:15 to go before halftime. The Rebels would take a 14-3 lead into the half.

Columbine would receive the second half kickoff and promptly march down the field for another touchdown. Tanner Hollens would run it in from 7 yards out capping the drive that lasted more than 6 minutes.

On Mullen’s next offensive possession, they were forced to punt from within their own endzone. Columbine’s special teams came up with a punt block and recovered in the endzone, for another score.

A couple possessions later Columbine’s defense came up big, this time sacking Mullen quarterback, Kyle Remington, in the end zone for a safety.

Hollens and Harrington would each add rushing scores for the Rebels, sealing the victory.

Next up for the Mullen Mustangs is their homecoming game against Ralston Valley, on October 11 at 7 p.m.

Next up for the Columbine Rebels is Lakewood on October 10 at 6 p.m.

Schmidt Carries Grandview to Victory

The Grandview Wolves (5-0) defeated the Mullen Mustangs (2-3) on Friday by a score of 42-12. The Wolves were led by junior tailback Noah Schmidt who tallied more than 250 yards on the night.
The two teams played a competitive first half. Grandview capitalized after a fumble by Mullen’s freshman quarterback Kaleb Valdez-Lemos on a 45-yard pass from junior quarterback Jacob Burr to wideout Darius Brown.
The Mustangs also ended their next possession in a turnover after Colton Martin intercepted Valdez-Lemos’ pass. The Mustang defense was tough and forced a Grandview punt.
Grandview was setup with good field position after Wilson Yee’s punt was blocked. Schmidt would find the endzone and the Wolves were up 14-0 with 8:17 left in the first half. Schmidt would find the endzone again after a couple Mustang personal foul penalties gave the Grandview drive momentum.

Mullen would answer just before the half ended. Kaleb Valdez-Lemos found Ben Marcoux who made a great catch and ran it in for a 34-yard touchdown.

Grandview’s first possession of the second half ended on a fumble that was recovered by Mullen’s outstanding defensive lineman, and Notre Dame verbal commit, Aiden Keanaaina. Mullen began that drive at the 15-yard line and came away with 3 points thanks to Wilson Yee’s 26-yard field goal.

It did not take long for Grandview to answer. Mullen’s special teams downed Grandview at their own 5-yard line on the ensuing kickoff. On the very first play of the drive Noah Schmidt broke free and ran it into the endzone 95 yards later.

Grandview went on to score two more touchdowns, one offensive touchdown and one interception return for a touchdown.

Matt Ells got a safety for the Mustangs at the end of the game to give the Mustangs 12 points on the evening.

Next week the Mustangs begin conference play at home against Columbine on Friday October 4 at 7 p.m.

Grandview will also begin conference play; They will go on the road to play Eaglecrest on Thursday October 3 in what will be a matchup of two unbeaten teams
