The Wolves devour the Warriors

LITTLETON — GRANDVIEW, a Class 5A Top-5 football team passed its way, YES PASSED to a decisive victory 42-14 victory in a Class 5A Metro East league contest against the senior night Arapahoe Warriors rebounding from a school tragedy last week on Thursday night. A tight first quarter looked like it was going to be a good ball game but the Wolves under the direction of sophomore quarterback #5 Jacob Burr would burn the Warriors for 28 points in quarter 2 and run the clock early in Q3.
The chill on the night might have been the performance of the Arapahoe offense as they struggled all night long until the third quarter. However, the cold did not affect a Wolves team hungry and still raptor bitten from an Eaglecrest team that beat them on a final play two weeks prior.
In Q1 at the 1:14 mark #44 Dayne Prim got the 49 yard strike from #5 Jacob Burr for the TD and the PAT from #18 Jordan Smith would make it 7-0. Arapahoe would stall out and turn it over to the Wolves and at 10:58 of Q2 #5 Jacob Burr would nail a 29 yard pass TD to #44 Dayne Prim and a 2 point shuffle pass to #25 Cade Bruckman would make it 15 to nada. Then Grandview would gain some ground and #8 Jordan Billingsley would cap off a 12 yard TD run and the extra point by #18 Jordan Smith would make it 22-0, Moments later after a fumble recover at 3:02, #44 Dayne Prim got another 7 yard TD pass from #5 Jacob Burr but #18 Jordan Smith would miss the PAT to make it 28-0. Then to close out the first half #18 Jordan Smith would do it all by catching a 34 yard pass from #5 Jacob Burr and kick the PAT to go into halftime 35-0.

Another stalled effort by Arapahoe gave Grandview the opportunity to advance the clock for good at 9:28 of Q3 as #8 Jordan Billingsley would run 23 yards for the TD and the clock would run. A successful PAT by #18 Jordan Smith would make it 42-0 and the route would be on. The Warriors would get great effort from #11 Adam Bakke on a 56 yard pass from #6 Kevin Lukasiewicz and new kicker #91 Connor Crookham would get the PAT and avoid the shutout with a 42-7 score. The fourth quarter emptied the benches for the Wolves and eventually a hook pass to #21 Jalen Thomas of 39 yards from #6 Kevin Lukasiewicz with 1:20 remaining would get the Warriors a much needed score. The PAT would be good by #91 Connor Crookham and the final would be 42-14 and drop the Warriors to (4-4) and the Wolves would chalk up win number 7.
RPI will help both teams in this tough conference but the Warriors travel East to face Eaglecrest next Thursday while Grandview hosts Overland next Friday.

The question now will be did Arapahoe play its final home game or will they get one more in the playoffs should they advance. A lot of soul searching will happen in the next few days as the Warriors try to get back on track and juggle the lineup to win some crucial ball games down the stretch. Meanwhile, Grandview will need to get healthy and win next week before the end of the season match up with Cherry Creek.
