Rampart 30, Bear Creek 24

At Jefferson County Stadium: Rampart’s Chris Yoo played hero for the Rams with the game-winning touchdown with just seven minutes to play in regulation.

Yoo broke through the line for a 1-yard touchdown, but after a missed extra point, the Rampart defense had to go to work.

And they did just that. Rampart’s Cale Cormaney intercepted a Bear Creek pass with five minutes to go, but after the Rams couldn’t score on the possession, the Bears ran down the clock making it all the way down to the Rampart 27-yard line before a slew of penalties eventually forced a turnover on downs with 30 seconds remaining.

Yoo also had a pair of touchdown runs in the first half (27 and 11 yards), and Foster Spendlove had a 25-yard TD pass to Kevin Witcher.

Grand Junction 28, Liberty 14

At Stocker Stadium: Liberty held a seven-point lead at halftime, but Grand Junction found the end zone three times in the second half to lock in the victory.

Salus finished with 106 rushing yards on 18 attempts.

The Lancers are 0-2.
