Puchino brothers help Longmont Christian beat Mountain Valley, snap 18-game losing streak

Longmont Christian beats Mountain Valley 71-20.

LONGMONT--Senior Quarterback Luke Puchino didn't have to look too far to help Longmont Christian snap its 18-game losing streak. 

He didn't even have to look any farther than his own family. 

Puchino connected with his younger brother--6'7" Freshman Wide Receiver Dominic Puchino--over and over again Friday night as the Warriors rolled over Mountain Valley 71-20. 

The Indians were right in the ball game for most of the first half, and even led to start the game when  Isaih Wellman ran for a touchdown, just barely stretching the football across the goal line to make it 7-0 Mountain Valley. 

However, the Puchino brothers immediately responded with a long touchdown bomb, continuing their record-setting ways from the week before where Luke threw for nine touchdowns and 706 yards. . 

Shortly thereafter, Puchino found his other target, Cameron Jauregui, for a score to give Longmont Christian its first lead of the night. 

From there, the teams traded scores back-and-forth, with Mountain Valley Quarterback Drew Martinez finding Jared Sheppard and David Hammel for touchdowns to keep the game close. 

But, after leading by a score of only 38-20 at the half, the Warriors rattled off 33 consecutive points in the second half to pull away big and win their first game of the 2016 season.
