Arapahoe Football Ends Season with Strong Game vs. Pomona
October 31, 2014
The Arapahoe football team concluded their season last night with a close 36-32 loss to Pomona at the North Area Athletic Complex (NAAC) in Arvada. Despite this, the Warriors had one of their best performances of the season.
The Warriors led the game for a majority of the first half, starting with a fumble recovery on the game’s opening kickoff that gave the Warriors the ball on the Pomona 11 yard line. This led to an early touchdown pass to senior Logan Gosselin and marked their first lead of the game.
The Warriors continued their first half onslaught with more critical special teams play and a critical and narrow fourth down stop deep in Arapahoe territory. At different points in the first half, Arapahoe led by scores of 14-6 and 17-16.
Pomona, coming into the game as a clear favorite and the top seed in that quarter of the bracket, played a close game. The second half was a back-and-forth touchdown scoring affair after Pomona entered with a 22-17 lead.
In the end, Pomona was able to run out the last 3:33 and narrowly escape an upset by the Warriors.
“I am very proud of how we finished our season,” head coach Mike Campbell said. “We found a way to win and get in against Smoky Hill and then played a very competitive game against a top-rated Pomona team.”
