A recap of Week 2 football scores and highlights for BoCoPreps area teams

Friday night

Lake Nona 29, Legacy 19: Legacy got its offense going in Orlando but couldn’t notch its first victory under coach Jay Madden. The Lightning (who lost 10-3 to No. 10 Arapahoe last week) led 19-14 at half on the strength of TD carries from Omari Bursey and Cole Walker, and a 40-yard TD connection from Kullen Lerma to Ethan Carey. Lake Nona responded with 15 unanswered points in the second half.

Thornton 32, Niwot 24: After a lengthy lightning delay at Adams 12 Five Star Stadium, the Cougars lost their first game of the season. Last week, they beat Greeley Central 22-16 on the back of two rushing scores and a passing TD from Chad Volf.

Golden 45, Silver Creek 7: Golden scored four touchdowns by the early minutes of the second quarter at North Area Athletic Complex and went on to hand Silver Creek its first loss of the season. The Raptors, who have had troubles in the opening half through two games, scored 38 straight after the break in a 38-18 Week 1 win over Prairie View.

Windsor 27, Longmont 6: Sophomore quarterback Kolby Holmes threw for 292 yards and a touchdown in the loss at Everly-Montgomery Field. Bryson Strandberg had 10 catches for 153 yards and a score.

Erie 54, Mullen 34: Blake Barnett had a pair of early rushing touchdowns and Class 4A No. 4 Erie marched out to a big early lead in its win at Mullen. The victory came after the Tigers fell to 4A No. 2 Ponderosa last week.

Frederick 20, Monarch 19: After losing 27-26 in Week 1 to Holy Family, Frederick eked out a one-point win for Matt Loyd’s first victory with the program. Teagun Boen took back a blocked punt for a 70-yard score in the win at Spangenberg Field.

Lyons 48, Las Animas 14: Miles Dumbauld had first-quarter rushing touchdowns of 19 and 50 yards and the Lions scored the game’s first 48 points to improve to 2-0 on the season. Dumbauld also had a passing TD and Maregu Sullivan had a TD catch and a 99-yard kick return TD in the victory at home.

Mead-Lutheran canceled: A storm at Mead High School delayed the Class 3A top-five showdown between the Mavericks and Lutheran by 90 minutes before the game was ruled unsafe to play Friday night.

Broomfield 65, Holy Family 7: Cole LaCrue, whose name has been thrown around nationally as one of the best uncommitted 2023 quarterbacks, had five touchdowns at Elizabeth Kennedy Stadium — three on the ground and two through the air. Garrett Keeler had a 14-yard fumble recovery for a score and Brent Harris had a TD run and catch.

Centaurus 34, Mountain Range 31 (2OT): In a game that went past midnight at North Stadium, Centaurus won its first game of the season in double-overtime. The Warriors tied the game at 21 with 4:52 left in regulation and scored two TDs in overtime to win.

Thursday night

Fairview 69, Lakewood 24: Rowan Risner is picking up where the yard-guzzling quarterbacks of Tom McCartney’s system have left. At Jeffco Stadium, he threw for 537 yards and seven touchdowns as the Knights improved to 2-0 on the season. He now has nine touchdowns to five interceptions in his first two games as the team’s starter. Jordan Rechel, who was among the state’s most intriguing freshmen last fall, had 10 catches for 168 yards and two scores. He also rushed three times for 81 yards and another TD. And Ben Holly had seven catches for 151 yards and two more TDs. Fairview will host 5A No. 5 Valor Christian next week.

Skyline 14, Standley Lake 13: Kaiden Box led a 99-yard drive at NAAC and Skyline redeemed its opening-week loss to Denver South.  The Falcons are home against 4A No. 10 Fruita Monument next week.

Arvada West 56, Boulder 0: Ethan Cook threw for six touchdowns at Recht Field as the Wildcats handed Boulder a tough defeat one week after the Panthers beat Centaurus. The Panthers are home against Silver Creek next week.

Faith Christian 49, Prospect Ridge Academy 7: Elik Hrivnak threw for 101 yards on 36 attempts and also rushed for a score in the loss at North Stadium. The Miners are 0-2 on the season and travel to Timnath next week.
