SOUTHERN COLORADO — Saturday marked the official end of the halfway mark of the Colorado high school football season, with six local teams in action.

In Pueblo, the South Colts officially played their first game of the season after a COVID-19 case caused the Colts to suspended their first two games of the season.

The preseason No. 1 team in 3A came out with a vengeance, rolling past the win-less Pueblo Centennial Bulldogs, 41-0.

Only 20 more minutes south of Dutch Clarke Stadium, the Pueblo County Hornets hosted Durango in the conference match-up.

The Demons were too much for County, handing them their first loss of the season, 49 to 21.

In Colorado Springs, two of the best quarterbacks in Southern Colorado squared off in Rampart's Cale Cormaney and Vista Ridge's Brayden Doorman.

The game between the Rams and the Wolverines was so good, it required overtime, with Vista Ridge taking the win, 32 to 31 after the Rams missed an extra point.

And in a last-ditch effort, Colorado Springs Christian School hosted Limon in a game put together at the last second when both of the opponents for the Lions and Badgers had to cancel their Week 3 games due to COVID-19 concerns.

The Badgers took care of business on the road, 42 to 7.
