PETER MITCHELL, Monarch football -- The junior linebacker helped the Coyotes contain Pueblo West's all-everything running back Derek Jackson as Monarch recorded a 14-6 win Saturday to advance to the Class 4A state championship game. Mitchell played one of the leading roles as Monarch limited Jackson to 194 yards on 30 carries, an average of 6.5 yards per attempt. That may not seem overly dominant, until one considers that Jackson entered the contest averaging 10.2 yards a carry and 262.4 yards per game. Mitchell also had a hand in a key second half fumble recovery as Monarch held on for the win.
There were no high school girls sports in session last week.
