Third graders score fourth shutout

The Durango Youth Football third and sixth grade teams both improved to 4-0 with convincing wins last weekend.

The third grade team improved to 4-0 by defeating Kirtland 42-0 on Saturday. Sawyer Sigle, Tobias Romero, Braxton Ernst, Braydon Gould, Colt Bartel and Carter Lopez all scored touchdowns in the win. Sigle also tossed extra point receptions to Austin Peterson and Jameson Green. The defense, meanwhile, recorded its fourth straight shutout and also added to the scoreboard with a safety from Colt Bartel. Romero, Sigle, Jacoby Thompson, Noah Leos and Camden Bates led the defense with their performances.

The sixth grade also improved to 4-0 with a 46-4 win over Kirtland. The dominating Demons came out in the first quarter with a scoop and score and a safety by Hayes Fancher. Malique Rodriquez returned a kick-off a touchdown and also rushed for a touchdown. Eli Schmitt, Tyler Hoerl and Jordan Willbanks added to the rushing touchdowns. Hoerl also completed passes for touchdowns to Willbanks and Jerad Lopez. The defense would not allow Kirtland to do anything. Luke Nichols recovered a fumble and the duo of Griffin McCroskey and Isaiah McCrady kept Kirtland in their own zone.

The second grade took a hard loss to Aztec. The Demon defense tried to stop them, Clark McKay held the line and Colin Price helped control the backfield as much as he could. Ryker Hollibaugh and Darren Brunson also found their way to the end zone, but it wasn't enough.

Despite losing to the Farmington Storm, the fourth grade team had a small victory by finally finding their way into the end zone.

The fifth grade team fought hard, but it wasn’t their day and they lost to Aztec 30-0.
