LA VETA- Last Friday night the La Veta football team traveled to Sanford for their final regular season game. This was a tough night for the Redskins as they lost 48-0 to the Indians. From the first quarter the Indians appeared fired up, wanting that victory and the title of League Champs.
In the first quarter, the Indians put 22 points on the board. The Redskins did not help their cause as they turned the ball over four times. On several occasions, the Redskins had momentum only to have it stopped by uncharacteristic errors. The fired up Sanford team capitalized on the given opportunities. The Redskins were unable to overcome and settled for third place in League.
Coach Ron Ortivez commented about the game and the cross division game, “I was extremely disappointed by the lack of enthusiasm from our kids. I don’t know if I put too much emphasis on the importance of the game and the significance of playing for a higher seed, but [now] we have to have a short memory and get ready for Dove Creek. As far as Dove Creek, I really do not know anything about them except they were second in their league. They have a long line of tradition there and they are going to be formidable.”
The Redskins will be back on the road tomorrow traveling to Dove Creek which is on the Western Slope about six hours away. Now is the time the Redskins will want to shine if they want to move on. Good luck Redskins!
