RANGELY I Vail Christian was supposed to travel to Rangely for a football game on Yeager Field last Friday but because of a power outage caused by the snowstorm, the game was postponed until Monday, when the Saints did come to town and marched out with a 26-8 win.
The Panthers are now 3-3 on the season and will play in Oak Creek against the undefeated Soroco Rams on Friday.
“We had a total of five turnovers, three interceptions and two fumbles,” head coach Paul Fortunato said about the game against the Saints. “It’s hard to come back from that many turnovers.”
The Saints scored 16 in the first quarter and the Panthers’ only score came in the second when quarterback Kaulan Brady ran in from 10 yards out and then completed a pass to Cameron Enterline for the two-point conversion. Enterline also had an interception on defense.
The Panthers did not allow the Saints to score in the second quarter and neither team got on the scoreboard in the third but Vail Christian put the game away with 10 points in the final quarter.
Fortunato said his team will move forward and prepare for the Rams.
“They (Rams) are the No. 1 team in the league right now, so it should be a tough game for us,” Fortunato said. “We are just going to have to have a great week of practice and make the adjustments we need to make to help with the turnovers.”
