Football: Cherokee Trail stuns Cherry Creek

By

GREENWOOD VILLAGE – Cherokee Trail forced six turnovers in their quarterfinal game with Cherry Creek, as they went on to win 27-14.

Creek didn’t find the end zone until midway through the third quarter, when Nate Starks broke loose down the sideline to score from 70 yards out and cut the Cougars lead to 14-7.

Late in the fourth quarter, Cherry Creek was trailing 20-14 and had a chance to take the lead with just over a minute remaining, but Izaiah Lottie snagged his second interception of the night and returned it for a touchdown to help the Cougars secure the win.

With the win, Cherokee Trail will now face Valor Christian in the semifinals, a rematch of last years state final, which Valor won 9-0.
