PARKER, Colo. — It was a rivalry game with a lopsided result.
In the first 9Preps Game of the Week of the 2021 season, 5A No. 5 Legend dismantled 4A No. 6 Ponderosa by a score of 42-0 to earn bragging rights for another year.
The Titans jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead and never looked back. Senior Jackson Brush led Legend with three touchdowns, cornerback Nate Smith had a pick-six and running Bryce Vaz was his usual steady self for the Titans.
"We've just been excited. We've been working for a long time, we've been putting in the hours," Smith told 9NEWS after the game. "It's just been nice to come play another team and to whoop up on another team who has been talking a lot of trash, so it was fun."
With more than 100,000 votes in the Game of the Week poll, 57,000+ went to the Legend and Ponderosa matchup. The pregame festivities from both sides lived up to the hype, but the battle on the field belonged to the Titans.
