Offenses ran wild during the 6-man matchup between Granada and Cheraw on Friday. Or "threw" wild, rather.
The two teams combined for 14 touchdown passes in their game, which ended in a 67-60 Granada win. The total sets the state record for combined passing touchdowns in a game. The previous record was 12, set by Revere and Arickaree in 1996, and later tied by Poudre and Brighton in 2013.
"It was a very, very wild football," Granada coach Traegon Marquez told the Colorado Preps Scoreboard Show on Friday. "A fun one to be a part of. But 'wild,' I think, is a mild way to put it."
Cheraw actually led the game 60-45 going to the fourth quarter, but Granada scored 22 unanswered points to win.
