The Colfax JV football team improved its season record to 7-2 last Friday with a convincing, 34-14, win over Placer last Friday night.
Falcons quarterback Logan Hurst and running back Sam Lahaie proved to be a big 1-2 punch for the Falcons in the win that also improved their Pioneer Valley League slate to 3-1.
Hurst ran for a pair of touchdowns of 19 and nine yards and also threw scoring passes to Dalton Bannister and Marcus Jackson, while LaHaie chipped in with another touchdown run.
Hurst finished the game by hitting on 14 of 21 passes for 228 yards while also running for 56 more yards on 11 carries. LaHaie, meanwhile, added 105 yards rushing on 14 carries. Colfax, which led 21-7 at halftime, broke the game open in the second half on Hurst's 26-yard scoring pass to Bannister and a 72-yard six-pointer to Jackson.
Colfax’s defense was sparked by Bannister and Ryan Roblez who each recorded sacks, Jeromy Cabodi, Pat Beninga and Brian Little. Colfax plays at Lincoln Friday night at 5:30 p.m.
