No. 7 Discovery Canyon 34, No. 10 Frederick 31, 2OT

At D-20 Stadium: It took a comeback and a couple of overtimes, but the seven-seed Thunder advanced to the second round of the playoffs Saturday.

Discovery Canyon trailed 21-7 at halftime before shutting out Frederick in the third and fourth quarters. Quarterback Zack Anderson hit receiver Ryan Monteleone for a 22-yard touchdown in the third quarter to make it a one-score game before Marshall Pike’s 14-yard touchdown -- his second of the game -- helped tie it at 21 with roughly nine minutes to play.

The Thunder defense stood up for the remainder of regulation.

The 6-foot-7 Anderson rumbled in for a touchdown on the first possession of overtime before the Warriors matched.

Frederick settled for a field goal to start the second overtime and saw Pike end the game with his third touchdown.

Discovery Canyon gets No. 2 Pueblo East, which held off Lewis-Palmer on Friday, in the second round.
