The Spartan football scored their first touchdown just minutes into their game against the Rifle Bears Friday in Rifle, but that was the only real highlight for Salida High School, as they lost 63-6.

About a minute and a half into the first quarter, on a fourth and inches, Salida ran a triple option. Freshman quarterback Caiven Lake read the defense back and choose to keep it, scampering 70 yards for the Spartan’s first touchdown this season.

Lake started after junior Barden Collins went out last week with a shoulder injury in the first quarter against Steamboat Springs.

Salida will return home to face the Montezuma-Cortez Panthers 7 p.m. Friday, in a game Coach Matt Luttrell said he thinks will be a good match up.
