LAKEWOOD, Colo. — There was a lot on the line when Ralston Valley and Columbine met at Jeffco Stadium on Friday night. Two Jeffco football teams, both ranked among the top 10 in Class 5A, in a key league battle.
The Mustangs (ranked No. 6) used a strong second half to pull away from the Rebels (ranked No. 5) for a 35-14 victory. Both teams were sharp defensively in the first half, going into halftime locked at 7-7 each.
Ralston Valley improves to 8-1 overall with the victory, and its only loss coming to league-leading Pomona in Week 7. The Mustangs will close out the regular season at home against Arvada West next week.
Columbine falls to 6-3 and will look to bounce back at Pomona in its regular-season finale.
