Steamboat football falls to Fort Lupton, evens season record

The Steamboat Springs football team traveled to Fort Lupton for its final away game of the season on Friday, Oct. 21. 

A high scoring opening quarter lead to a 45-20 Fort Lupton lead at halftime. Despite a couple scores in the third quarter making it a manageable game, Steamboat was unable to complete the comeback, losing 52-35. 

The Sailors defense sharpened up in a big way for quarters two, three and four, but it was too late. Steamboat’s record now evens to 4-4 with just one game remaining on the season. 

The Sailors welcome Berthoud to Steamboat for the season finale on Saturday, Oct. 29. A win would grant them a second consecutive winning record. 

Fort Lupton 52, Steamboat Springs 35
SS 20 0 15 0 – 35
FL 45 0  0  7 – 52
