Mead’s Varsity Football team beat Lewis-Palmer at Friday night’s game with a score of 27-14.

#34, Runningback, Ryan Bullock is forced to the ground just past the line for a short gain. It was just enough though, as it set the Mavs up for the touchdown that put them in the lead.

It wasn’t a sure win from the beginning, however. Mead was down by 1 point, with a score of 13-14, prior to halftime. That didn’t last long, as the team got into a groove shortly thereafter.

When asked whether or not the team was concerned after the first half, junior Ethan Watkins (#65) said, “No, we just wanted to play football.”

He added that it felt “pretty good” winning the first game of the season.

Others agreed and added that it was a tough game, according to senior Brennen Dibella (#76). “But we pulled it together at the end,” he said.

“It’s exciting senior year to come out here,” says Brennen Dibella (#76). Brennen is also drum major for the marching band and notes that “it’s busy, but it’s fun, y’know.”

Klatt shared that this is not only a win for the high school but a win for the Mead community as a whole.

“I think we work well as a team,” said Dibella.

Mead will face off again rival team Skyline High School, Friday, August 31st at 7pm at Longmont High School.
