JV and freshmen teams tame Union Mine

-A +A
After a week off for the bye in their schedule, the Colfax High JV football team resumed action Friday night against Union Mine. Starting slowly, the Falcons steadily gained steam as the game went along and eventually ended up with a 30-0 shutout win over the visiting Diamondbacks. Now 2-0 on the season, the Falcons used touchdown passes from quarterback Michael Wilson to Kyle Bryant and Christopher Harshman, a six-yard scoring run by Chas Reisinger, and a 27-yard pass interception return by Chancey Trentman to wilt the Diamondbacks. Wilson finished the game 11 of 15 passing for 161 yards and the two scores. The touchdown toss to Bryant opened the game’s scoring and covered 34 yards, while Harshman reeled in a 26-yard scoring toss in the third quarter. For good measure, Wilson also booted a 23-yard field goal in the final stanza. On the ground, Colfax used a balanced attack to pile up 105 yards as Tanner Kane led the way with 53 yards on seven carries. Resinger followed with 23 yards on seven carries, while Austin Moore picked up 22 more on nine packs. On the defensive side of the ball, the Falcons used Trentman’s third-quarter interception return for six points to expand on their 13-0 halftime lead. Bailey Bean also added a pass pick for the Falcons, while Brenden Flagg recovered a Union Mine fumble. Also aiding Colfax’s shutout effort was good defensive play from Jack Baldoni, Wes Woodward, Greg Painter and Mario Margherita. The Colfax JVs will play on Thursday this week, hosting Inderkum at 5:30 p.m. today.
