Ignacio High School football blanked by No. 6 Colorado Springs Christian

Bobcats unable to get run game going in loss

The Colorado Springs Christian High School football team got off to a fast start in Saturday’s clash at Ignacio High School, and did not look back.

The Lions (4-1), No. 6 in Class 1A, found the end zone six times in the first half, three in each quarter en route to a 42-0 win over the Bobcats.

Colorado Springs Christian’s quarterback Caleb Stockton threw for three touchdown passes in the win, two of which were to wide receiver Joe Dunn, who had two catches for 89 yards and added three scores.

Stockton opened the scoring for the Lions with a 66-yard punt return touchdown with 9:25 remaining in the first quarter for a 7-0 lead.

The Bobcats (1-4) then failed to secure the ensuing kickoff, which bounced off of an Ignacio player, and the Lions were first to the ball. Seven plays later, the Lions found the end zone for the second time in the first quarter, as Dunn ran in a 10-yard score, to make it 14-0 with 6:07 left in the first quarter.

Ignacio’s next two possessions were brief, after the Bobcats had a three-and-out, and then running back Lawrence Toledo fumbled after he initially picked up seven yards midway through the first quarter. The Lions took advantage, as Stockton found Dunn on a wide-open, 40-yard strike to make it 21-0 with 2:17 left in the first quarter.

In the second quarter, CSCHS capped off a six-play drive with a 26-yard TD pass from Stockton to Andrew Knedler with 7:29 left in the first half. Rian Chavez also scored with 2:55 left to go up five scores. Just before the half, the Lions forced the running clock with their sixth score, as Stockton found Dunn again, this time for a 49-yard score. Dunn outjumped cornerback Dylan Labarthe for a ball that hung up in the air, and took it in for the score with 1:36 left in the half. It was 42-0 at halftime.

Ignacio had just one possession in the second half that ended on a turnover on downs. The Bobcats had 19 carries for negative two yards. IHS’ leader was Toledo, who finished with six carries for 26 yards. Quarterback Gabe Tucson was 5-of-9 passing for 71 yards.

Stockton finished 7-of-8 for 136 yards with three TD passes, while Dunn had his three scores, and finished with five carries for 40 yards on the ground. Peyton Brones led CSCHS on the ground with seven carries for 50 yards.

The Bobcats will travel to Center (3-2, 0-1 1A Southern Peaks) at 7 p.m. Friday.
