BOULDER - The Fairview Knights pounded Boulder 50-9 on Friday night. The victory marked Fairview's ninth straight win over its cross-town rival.

He would find the end zone one more time before the half ended. Sam Lowry converted a field goal with just over a minute left to give Boulder its first points of the night.

Fairview blew the game wide open in the third quarter. Mariano Kemp plowed over the goal line to make it 28-3 with just over eight minutes remaining. The Knights proved to be relentless down the stretch, and eventually took this game, 50-9.
