PREP FOOTBALL: Colfax crushes Argonaut
With stout defense and plenty of offense, the Colfax football team improved to 3-0 this season with a third straight lopsided victory.
The Falcons scored all of their points in the first half and kept Argonaut off the board throughout to earn a 35-0 home victory Friday.
Through three games, Colfax has outscored their opponents 134-29.
Leading the Falcons was senior quarterback Ryland Heimann who was 14-for-16 for 212 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Colton Reeves pulled down the touchdown, one of his four catches for 57 yards.
On the ground, Mason Ahrens led the way with 72 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries.
On defense, the Falcons not only pitched a shutout, but also accounted for two touchdowns, one coming off a blocked punt and another on fumble return.
