Devils football falls to Cortez

CORTEZ — Five turnovers sank Eagle Valley at Montezuma-Cortez on Friday night as the host Panthers downed the Devils, 20-19.

And that makes for a long bus trip home from the Four Corners for the Devils (4-3 overall and 2-3 in the 3A Slope).

“We had too many turnovers,” Eagle Valley coach John Ramunno said. “It’s tough to win that way. We had some plays open and we didn’t make them.”

The Devils were without their starting quarterback, Orin Reicheldt, and primary running back, Riley Rowles.

Harrison Stevens did fill in well under center for Reicheldt with three touchdowns on the ground, including a 50-yarder that gave the Devils a 19-14 lead in the fourth quarter. But Cortez converted on fourth-and-1 with Panthers quarterback Jonathan Walck running for the game-winning score.

Eagle Valley got the ball twice after Cortez took the lead, but the Panthers Austin Bayless rang up two interceptions.

Meanwhile, Battle Mountain fell to Delta, 48-8, Friday night in Edwards. Jack Harty had the touchdown for the Huskies (0-7).

Battle Mountain is at Eagle Valley next week.

The Gore Rangers fell to 6-4-2 overall and 3-1-2 in the 3A Slope.

Vail Mountain School is at Middle Park on Tuesday and closes the regular season with Aspen at Bandoni Alumni Field on Thursday.
