Lutheran rolls past Palisade to advance to 3A football semifinals

The Lions were dominant in their 49-7 quarterfinal win over the Bulldogs.

PARKER, Colo. — The Lutheran Lions proved why they are one of the best teams in the state on Saturday afternoon. 

The Lions rolled through Palisade in the Class 4A quarterfinals with a final score of 49-7. 

Lutheran scored a touchdown on each of their first seven drives to get to 49 points, including 42 first-quarter points. The game featured a running clock for the majority of play. 

Senior wide receiver Bryce Johnson stood out the most on Saturday afternoon. His impressive catches under pressure paired with strong running after the catch made him literally unstoppable against Palisade.

No. 2 seed Lutheran will host No. 3 Fort Morgan next week in the semifinals with a ticket to the state title game on the line.
