Warriors Take Down Trojans in Rivalry Matchup

Crisp Fall air, a district battle, and two teams that don't like each other. The scene was set for a great night of football. The Arapahoe Warriors though, were able to come up with the right script to get a win, as they beat the Cambridge Trojans, 30-6.

It was one of those physical, gritty games where the score did feel closer than what it read as the intensity was there for the entirety of the matchup.

To open the game, Arapahoe had the ball. On their opening offensive play quarterback Trenton Roskop was under pressure on a rollout to his left. He threw a pass to his receiver and stepping in the way and making a play was Ben Hoberty of Cambridge as he picked off the pass.

Cambridge had great starting field position on the Arapahoe side of the field. But, the Arapahoe defense was tough, forcing a turnover on downs. The first quarter continued to be a rock fight and it was 0-0 after the first twelve minutes.

Fast forward to just over halfway through the second quarter, Arapahoe put together a nice drive and scored on a 14-yard touchdown run from Will Cacy. The two-point conversion was no good, but Arapahoe led 6-0 with 4:56 to go in the second. In the final minute of the quarter, Arapahoe elected to be aggressive before halftime. They were able to go down the field and score on a 26-yard touchdown pass from Trenton Roskop to Grayson Koller. The two-point conversion was good, and Arapahoe took that 14-0 lead into halftime.

In the third quarter, Arapahoe again distanced themselves, this time on a 13-yard touchdown run from Will Cacy again. The two-point conversion was good and it was 22-0 with 6:45 to go in the third quarter.

The second half continued to be a physical and chippy game between the Trojans and Warriors.

Cambridge put together a long, nine-minute drive in the fourth quarter, and scored on a one-yard touchdown run by Dierks Sayer. The two-point conversion was no good and Cambridge trailed 22-6.

Arapahoe eliminated any attempt at a comeback just one minute and 49 seconds later when Will Cacey scored on a 10-yard run, the two-point conversion was good and Arapahoe increased the lead to 30-6 and that was the final score.

Head Coach of the Warriors, Dustin Kronhoffman discussed what he saw in this rivalry game between Arapahoe and Cambridge. "It was two teams playing hard... It was a battle. The score might be 30-6, but it was a hard-fought game." Kronhoffman also mentioned what they found in the run game that led to the win. "We were just trying to keep it simple...Some of the things they were doing they were taking some things away and we were able to get the option game going a little bit."

Cambridge was led by Dierks Sayer with 52 yards rushing on 11 carries and a touchdown.

Arapahoe had a big game from Will Cacy as he carried the ball 22 times for 147 yards and three touchdowns.

Cambridge falls to 2-3 on the season and will face Alma at home on Friday.

Arapahoe is 5-0 and will battle Hi-Line on the road in a huge D1-9 District matchup next Friday.
