COLORADO SPRINGS — The Mead football team scored early and often Friday night, dismantling St. Mary’s 47-6 in Colorado Springs.

The Mavs jumped out to a 13-0 lead in the first 12 minutes and never looked back. MHS added 21 more points in the second frame, taking a 34-6 lead into intermission before coasting through the remainder of the evening.

The Mead defense acted as a brick wall throughout the night, as it thoroughly confounded the Pirates’ offensive attack. The Mavericks allowed just 17 yards through the air on five of nine passing. They also forced a SMHS quarterback to fumble once.

On the ground the Mavs’ defense was no less porous. Five St. Mary’s backs combined for 58 yards on 28 attempts, an average of 2.1 yards per carry.

The win comes on the heels of a 47-0 thrashing of Valley a week ago at home. The Mavs (2-0) will face their first real test of the season when they travel to Holy Family, the No. 6 ranked team in Class 3A, next week.
