Lisbon mauls Lone Tree in battle of Lions

Posted:

Second-ranked Lisbon and third-ranked Lone Tree shared nicknames and their success in class A, but it was Lisbon who took control of the game and the division.

Lisbon quarterback Ben Knake threw for one score and ran for two, propelling his Lions to a 35-7 win over Lone Tree.

Lisbon struck first on a fourth and 13.  Knake rolled right and under pressure lofted a ball that ended up in the arms of Logan Rickard.  The 33 yard score put Lisbon up 6-0.

Lone Tree forced a fumble near the end of the first quarter that led to points.  Lone Tree capped off the ensuing drive with a four yard touchdown run from Levi Reitzler.  After the extra point, Lone Tree took a 7-6 lead.

Lisbon would come storming back behind their senior quarterback.

Knake finished off consecutive drives with rushing touchdowns to end the half and put his team up 20-7.

In the second half, Lisbon finished what they started.  Tait Simpson capped off an 80 yard drive with a 20 yard touchdown to put Lisbon up 28-7.  Simpson would finish the scoring off in the fourth quarter with a one yard run.
