COLORADO SPRINGS – The Durango High School football team was disappointed to not play a Week 1 game after top-ranked Pueblo South was forced to cancel the matchup because of a positive COVID-19 test to one player. So, the Demons put up two games worth of highlights in Week 2.
After long last, Class 3A third-ranked DHS opened its fall season Saturday in Colorado Springs against Mitchell High School at Garry Berry Stadium. It took the Demons only three plays to score their first touchdown of 2020, and the lead was 14-0 before a minute had even ticked off the game clock in the first quarter. DHS (1-0) never let up in a 64-0 drumming of the Marauders (0-2).
“It felt amazing. It’s been way too long, long time coming, but we were ready for this game, and it was a blast,” said DHS senior Ben Finneseth. “Last week, it was pretty heartbreaking not to play. It felt so good to be back on the field with the guys.”
It was a six touchdown day for DHS senior quarterback Jordan Woolverton, who passed for five scores and ran for another. He also grabbed one of four interceptions for the DHS defense against Mitchell quarterback Macy Davenport II.
