The Pagosa Springs Pirates football team fell 48-13 to the Delta Panthers during last Friday’s away game.

“The boys came out and did some really good things for the first half,” coach Scott Spoede clarified. “We didn’t come out firing on all cylinders during the second half.”

On the passing end, Isaiah Griego completed four out of eight passes for 142 yards and two touchdowns, the longest of which was 63 yards, while Ty Kimsey completed two out of four for 29 yards, but also threw one interception.

“I said last week that it would come down to maximizing each snap,” the coach continued.

On the receiving end, Kimsey caught two passes for 61 yards and made one of the team’s touchdowns, while Craig Tamburelli caught one for 63 yards and scored the other touchdown.

Zach DeVooght also caught two for 35 yards and Tyler Cowan caught one for 12 yards.

On the ground, Cowan led the rushing effort with 15 carries for 58 yards, while Kimsey went 26 yards on 11 carries, Connor Aragon went 10 yards on one carry and Dalton Lucero went 10 yards on two carries.
