By Brent W. New preps@gazette.com - Published: October 4, 2013

Valor Christian 40, Fountain-Fort Carson 0

At Guy R. Barickman Stadium: For the second year in a row, Valor Christian (4-1) crushed Fountain-Fort Carson 40-0.

Once again Eagles running back Christian McCaffrey was the highlight reel with four touchdowns, including runs of 26, 3 and 80 yards, and a TD reception of 26 yards.

The Stanford commit totaled 230 of the Eagles' 379 rushing yards on his 11 carries and had three receptions for 68 yards.

Last season, the Trojans were undefeated and the No.?1 5A team in Colorado before McCaffrey scored four times and Fountain-Fort Carson's offense committed three turnovers in the 40-0 Valor win.

Friday, the Trojans (2-3) totaled 80 yards, as the Eagles led by 40 after three quarters.

Pueblo West 40,

Cheyenne Mountain 9

At Pueblo West: Cheyenne Mountain quarterback Mitch Guhl went 12 of 23 for 80 yards with two interceptions as the Indians (1-4, 0-2 4A Foothills League) were clobbered for a third straight game.

The senior managed the team's only touchdown late in the fourth quarter to make it 40-9, as Pueblo West (4-1, 2-0) rolled.

Next up, Cheyenne Mountain faces Palmer Ridge.

Lewis-Palmer 38,

Harrison 12

At Harrison: Lewis-Palmer (2-4) scored a season-high 38 points as it won for the second time in three weeks.

Meanwhile, Harrison's offensive woes continued. The Panthers (1-4) were coming off a season-high 18-point outburst in a win over Mitchell last weekend, before it managed only 12 points Friday.

Both teams have tough matchups next weekend. Lewis-Palmer travels to Discovery Canyon, while Harrison faces TCA.

Alamosa 28, St. Mary's 13

At St. Mary's: Hayden Smith threw a 27-yard TD to Ryan Detert, Connor Rosenoff added another score, but St. Mary's (0-5, 0-3 2A Tri-Peaks) once again couldn't find any traction on offense in the second half against Alamosa (2-3, 1-2) to post its first win of the season.

The Pirates haven't scored a second-half point through their first five games, and Friday they trailed only 16-13 at half.

The Pirates will look for their first win against La Junta next weekend.

Pueblo South 40,

Mesa Ridge 0

At C.A. Foster Stadium: After a heartbreaking, down-to-the-wire loss to Ca?n City last weekend, Mesa Ridge (2-3, 0-2 4A Pioneer League) was hit with a no-doubter by Pueblo South (4-1, 2-0).

Pueblo South quarterback Nathan Spinuzzi was unstoppable. He threw for four TDs and ran for a 25-yard score for the Colts (4-1).

Next up, the Grizzlies face winless Widefield (0-5) next Friday.

Palmer Ridge 40, Widefield 20

At Don Breese Stadium: Palmer Ridge (1-4) won its first game of the season, doubling up winless Widefield (0-5).

The Bears had scored 34 points in their first four games.

Nest up, Palmer Ridge faces Cheyenne Mountain and Widefield heads to Mesa Ridge.
