What can Brown do for you? Colin and Jay Brown seal game against Rangeview with three picks
The football Knights' defense closed the deal against Rangeview Thursday night, creating turnovers to set up the offense for easy punch-ins. Jay Brown picked off two passes and Colin Brown had another, allowing the team to coast to a 28-3 victory.
The offense was able to punch in four short running touchdowns, which were aided by great field position. Not only did the defense contribute to the field position, but also a stellar performance from the special teams unit. Cameron Frazier had a long kick return on the first play of the second half that set up one of Ben Meyer's three touchdowns. Michael McVenes added the fourth touchdown as he scrambled into the end zone.
The scoring explosion was much needed after a slow start in the first half, in which Rangeview scored a touchdown to narrow the score to one right before halftime. Other than the one touchdown, the defense shut down Rangeview's offense; a stark contrast to last year's game between the two teams, which Rangeview won 50-47.
Offensively, Fairview did most of it's damage on the ground; an encouraging sign for a Knights squad that saw various running backs go down last game against Poudre. Ben Meyer left his mark on the game with his three touchdowns, despite having limited carries. Junior Kevin Sharr filled in nicely for the injuries in the backfield; fighting for tough yards that allowed Meyer to dash in for scores.
With the win the Knights moved to 2-0 on the season and will face Mountain Vista for their first road game of the season next Friday.
