Eagles Move to 2-0 With Homecoming Win Over Cimarron

Dan LuceroSeptember 14, 2020

The Colby Eagles put together touchdown drives in each of the first three quarters and held Cimarron’s dangerous running game largely in check in a 21-8 victory in the 2020 home opener at Dennen Field.

Jaren Rush found the end zone three times on the ground, part of a 17-carry, 101-yard rushing night for the senior. His one-yard plunge on the final offensive play of the first quarter gave the Eagles a lead they would not relinquish. Rush would also score on a seven-yard run in the second quarter and a five-yard burst in the third. Colby rushed for 309 yards as a team in the win, with Hagan Booi joining Rush in the 100-yard club by gaining 159 yards on his 19 carries.

Cimarron’s lone touchdown came midway through the fourth quarter on a Tate Seabolt four-yard run. The Bluejays converted the two-point conversion but never saw the ball again as the Eagles bled out the final 6:34 on the clock.

The Eagles dominated possession for a second straight week, converting seven of their eleven third down chances and holding Cimarron to 3-for-12 on third down.

Colby is now 2-0 overall and 2-0 in the GWAC after winning their first ever meeting against Cimarron. The Bluejays are 0-2 overall and in the league. The Eagles travel to Ulysses this coming Friday night and you’ll hear the action on 100.3 The Ride, nwksradio.com and the Rocking M app starting with the Funk Optometry Pregame Show at 6:00 pm leading up to the kickoff at 7:00 pm.
