Two teams that pride itself in running the ball and playing strong defense faced off with a league title on the line in the final week of the regular season.

No. 3 Pomona traveled to face No. 5 Columbine on the road, where one team would finish with an undefeated record, a league title and, most likely, a spot in the Class 5A state playoffs next week. The losing team would sit on the bubble for a spot in the playoffs.

The game lived up to the hype. Two touchdowns from Pomona was the difference for them to leave with a 14-11 win to finish the regular season with a 6-0 record.

Game recap

On the second offensive play of the game, Pomona quarterback Jack Popsil showed why he is a weapon with the football. After faking the handoff to the fullback on the triple option, he hit the edge and showed a burst of speed when he broke off for a 77-yard touchdown run to strike first. After that, it was a slugfest, with both teams wanting to establish the run game and the defenses stepping up to create turnovers and big stops along the way.
