* Inside scoop: Fort Collins finally kicked its losing streak a week ago today by heading down to Legacy and grinding out a 10-point victory over the lightning. Fossil Ridge, on the other hand, is still battling to pick up the first win of the year.

The Sabercats’ offense is by far the most efficient of the four Poudre School District teams with a spread attack led by quarterback Travis Avila and wide receiver Corey Peter, who leads the area in both yards and touchdowns.

The Lambkins finally seem to be clicking, offensively, and eliminating pesky mental errors on both sides of the ball. Quarterback Caleb Seeton has sparked the Fort Collins attack with his ability to out-maneuver defenders and running back Calvin Johnson has shined as of late.

No local football team has won on French Field this season, but that will finally change tonight.
