PETER MITCHELL, Monarch football: While the offense was rolling in the Coyotes’ 4A quarterfinal win over Loveland last Friday, the defense held the Indians to eight points and ensured the running clock victory. Leading the defense, senior middle linebacker Peter Mitchell had 16 tackles against the Indians rushing attack. Coyotes head coach Phil Bravo said Mitchell’s effort in shutting down the Indians’ running game, which they live by, created major problems for the Coyotes’ opponents and was a major factor in the win.
NOTE: Girls athletes of the week will return Dec. 11.
