The Steamboat Springs High School football team slipped to 0-3 after falling Friday on the road at Glenwood Springs.
The Sailors lost to the Demons 34-0.
In wet, windy conditions in a steady downpour, the Demons turned to their rushing attack, rushing for 322 yards and five touchdowns on 48 carries in the shutout win. Outside of a strong rushing attack, the Demons’ defense stood tall, holding the Sailors to 20 total yards of offense, forcing three fumbles and intercepting one pass.
On the ground, Glenwood junior Luke Gair rushed for 166 yards and three touchdowns, while junior Miguel Herrera added 109 yards and two scores on only five carries. Junior Gavin Olson chipped in with 43 yards on six carries, while senior quarterback AJ Crowley rushed for 60 yards on six carries.
Next up for Steamboat is a 7 p.m. game Friday at home against Conifer, the Sailors last non-conference game of the year.
