Gallery: Moffat County junior varsity football vs. Steamboat Springs
The 21-14 Friday night finish for Moffat County High School varsity football against Steamboat Springs was just a taste of the big meal the younger Bulldogs would have after the weekend.
MCHS’s junior varsity team’s first home game on Monday proved to be just as successful, if not more, as their older teammates, with the JV squad routing the Sailors 54-8.
A powerhouse performance started slowly as Steamboat took a brief lead in the first quarter 8-6. Coaches Shane Hadley and Ben Egger noted that the boys in blue suddenly sprung to life.
“Our guys just decided to show up after that,” Hadley said.
Coaches also added that the game was a good occasion to rotate players regularly to ensure all were getting good field time.
With a 21-0 away win in Frisco the week before, JV is 2-0 and will next travel Sept. 17 to Rifle.
The National Junior High Finals Rodeo will be bringing in the top cowboy and cowgirl athletes from June 23 to 29 in Huron, South Dakota.
