Two of the best teams in Colorado, Mullen and Cherry Creek square off this Friday night in what is bound to be an intense affair. The two powerhouse programs played each other in the Colorado state quarterfinals back in 2016, with Cherry Creek upsetting Mullen to move on to the state semifinals.
Mullen and Cherry Creek will renew their rivalry this season after not playing each other in 2017. The battle will be as intense as ever.
Cherry Creek :35
Both teams came into this game feeling confident, both sitting at 2-0 early in the season, so this game had extra implications, as it would give one team their first loss of the season. And a stinging loss it was for Mullen, who were defeated 35-8 by arch rival Cherry Creek. The Cherry Creek offense was simply too much, led by QB and Iowa commit Alex Padilla. Padilla dominated the game, and the Mullen defense had no answer for the star player and eventual Great American Rivalry Series MVP. The Cherry Creek defense also played their part, holding the Mullen offense to only eight points in the content. The win moves Cherry Creek to 3-0 and drops Mullen down to 2-1.
