Lesher Wins PSD 8th Grade 2014 Football Championship!

On Saturday morning, 10/24, Lesher played Blevins in the first annual 2014 8th Grade Football Championship at French Field. In previous seasons the district middle school football champion was awarded based on the best record of 9 football playing schools after an 8 game regular season. Thanks largely to the work of new Poudre School District Athletic Director, Ron Alexander, we’ve begun a +1 annual 8th grade championship game for the middle schools.

Game notes: A great crowd and Lesher’s pep band was on hand in beautiful weather Saturday to watch an awesome game between two well-coached middle school football teams. Lesher came in at 7-1, the #1 seed, the undefeated defending 7th grade champions from 2013, and carrying a two year record of 15-1 with back-to-back regular season championships. Blevins also entered the game at 7-1 this year, the #2 seed, and last year’s 7th grade runners up with a two-year record of 13-3.

Game highlights: Lesher’s Baxter Tuggle scored on a 1st quarter touchdown run with Landon Correll notching the 2 point conversion to make the score 8-0. The first half was a very close defensive battle, with Lesher still ahead 8-0 at halftime. A 32 yard field goal in the 3rd quarter by Lesher’s Alec Fronapfel made the score 11-0. Late in the 3rd quarter the Vikings Eddie Carabajal recovered a fumble on the 5 yard line resulting in an Omado Tovar running touchdown, and Collin Siegfried’s pass to Landon Correll for the 2 point conversion made it 19-0. In the final quarter Landon Correll ran in another score, but the conversion failed. The final score was Lesher Vikings 25, Blevins Bruins 0. The Lesher defense also played great in holding a very strong Blevins offense scoreless!
