WESTMINSTER, Colo. — The game is four quarters, but sometimes it's decided by halftime.
The Douglas County football team came out of the gates fast on Thursday night, jumping out to a 49-7 lead on Northglenn by the end of the first half and cruising to a 49-21 win.
The victory moved the Huskies to 2-0 on the season while the Norsemen fell to 1-1.
It was the second-straight week Douglas County earned a dominant win after they topped Mountain Range 45-0 in Week 1. Up next will be a visit to Prairie View on Friday, Sept. 10.
Northglenn defeated Thornton 30-6 in Week 1, but now sits at .500 on the year. They'll look to move to 2-1 next Friday night at Rock Canyon.
