Windsor Wins Semi-final Victory

Windsor High Schools defense, from the linemen to the backfield, played some of its best football of the season, helping the Wizards (12-1) shut out visiting Frederick HS 19-0 in the class 3A state football semifinals last Saturday afternoon at HJ Dudley field.
As a result, Warriors quarterback Jaron Balman never got comfortable in the fasce of Winsor's dominant pass rush. Balman completed just two of his 15 pass attempts and was sacked four times.
Sean Glenn, a 6'3" 225 pound defensive lineman, had two sacks and three tackles for losses, while fellow lineman Jake Niess (7 tackles) and Connor Larson (6 tackles, 3 for losses) joined to control the line and hold the Warriors (9-4) to just 88 yards on the ground. "The offense came out a little slow, but they got it going" said Glenn whose Wizards also shutout Frederick 40-0 earlier this season. "We were working and we pulled it out in the end."
Glenn, who described sacking the quarterback as the "best feeling in the world," attributed the runaway second half more to what his team didn't do on the field. We just kept our heads," Glenn said. "They were kind of losing their tempers a little. We just played fundamental football and pulled it off."
Windsor quarterback Joe Sanger broke open a scoreless game in the third quarter when he hooked up with wingback Aaron Schmidt on a 77 yard touchdown pass.
Schmidt, coming off a three touchdown performance in last week's quarterfinal win over Rifle, admitted that the play was pivotal and that Sanger couldn't have thrown it any better. "They knew what we were doing, so coach (Chris Jones) gave Joe the opportunity and he laid a beautiful ball up there," Schmidt said. "I caught it, broke away, and that changed the momentum of the game." Schmidt finished with just 19 rushing yards on 9 carries but added another rushing touchdown late in the game to ice it for Windsor.
Speedster Jordan Porterfield was held in check by Frederick for most off the game. But, with his potential for a big play, it was just a matter of time before the turned the corner. With the game still much in doubt in the fourth quarter, Frederick had Windsor pinned deep in its own territory and facing a third down and long when Porterfield got a toss from Sanger, broke a tackle on the edge, and outraced the secondary 81 yards to the end zone for his ninth touchdown of the year. Porterfield led Windsor on the ground with 102 yards on 13 carries. Sanger ran for 64 yards while Will Dressor and Vince Hooley each rushed for 48 yards.

Windsor Wins Colorado 3A State Championship!

Windsor took full advantage of its second chance against Silver Creek. Caleb Smith and the Wizards' defense weren't about to allow the Raptors any more chances at a title on Saturday.
Smith, Windsor's senior outside linebacker, recovered a fumble on the Wizards' 4-yard line to cap an impressive goalline stand that allowed Windsor to secure a 14-7 win in the Class 3A state football finals at Legacy Stadium on the Cherokee Trail High School campus.
Trailing by a touchdown, Silver Creek lined up on the 1-yard line on third-and-goal. The Raptors standout senior quarterback Austin Apodaca bobbled a handoff attempt, Smith pounced on the ball, and moments later, the Wizards were celebrating their third state title in program history; their first since 1993. It looked like it was supposed to be a handoff to the fullback, but they completely missed it; I saw the ball go down and I just dove right in, Smith said. It was crazy. It was unbelievable how close they were to tying the game. Just having that ball underneath my stomach was the greatest feeling. Hearing the crowd just roar and go crazy was a great feeling.
Smith's fumble recovery was just one of a series of championship-seizing plays by a stout Windsor's defense, which paved the way for the upset just two months after a 41-21 home loss to this same Silver Creek team in a nonleague game on Sept. 30. Our defense played rock solid, Wizards coach Chris Jones said. "(Defensive coordinator) Brad Morgan and the defensive staff did an outstanding job. Brad is like a son to me, and we didn't let each other down. We were going to take care of each other."
The Wizards' defense took care of its offense, coaches and fans in the most crucial moments of the game. With a second-and-goal at the Windsor 2, the high-powered Raptors (12-2) appeared on the verge of tying the game, or perhaps taking the lead, in the final minutes. The Wizards (13-1) would have none of it.
Silver Creek fullback Nathan Dunlavy was stuffed at the 1 on second down, paving the way for Smith's fumble recovery one play later. After regaining the ball, Windsor junior quarterback Joe Sanger kept the chains moving and the clock running, advancing the ball 17 yards, all on the ground, to drain the rest of the clock and send legions of Wizards supporters rushing onto the frozen synthetic turf field.
"Just to see our team come together and play as one, thats' the special part about it," Windsor star lineman Joey OC'onnor said. "I can speak for the whole team, the trophy means nothing (compared) to the memory wer'e going to have for the rest of our lives with this whole team. O'Connor anchored a big, athletic offensive line that set the table for the Wizards' balanced triple-option rushing attack all season long.
On Saturday, Windsor ground its way to 211 rushing yards on 49 carries. None of those yards were bigger than the two that Sanger used to power into the end zone with 10 minutes, 28 seconds left in the game; extending the Wizards' lead to 14-7 just moments after Apodaca connected with senior Ryan Rankin for a 59-yard pass that tied the game with 2:17 left in the third.
"Silver Creek is known for having a high-powered offense, so it was just a relief to know we were back in the drivers' seat," Sanger said of his clutch rushing touchdown. "Then, our defense just shut them down and it all worked all perfect. ... There�s no words (to describe the win). It�s just surreal."
While Windsors' offense was efficient and relatively mistake-free, Silver Creek committed a series of uncharacteristic errors, playing right into the hands of the Wizards' opportunistic defense. With neither teams' offense showing much life during most of the first half, Windsors' defense provided just the spark the offense needed in the final moments of the second quarter. Wizards junior outside linebacker Duncan Goodrich picked off an Apodaca pass near midfield with 11 seconds left in the half. One play later, Sanger connected with senior Jacob Molina, who gained separation along the right sideline for a 42-yard touchdown pass with 5 seconds left in the half.
"You get to this point in which it is one game for it all, and the team that makes the least amount of mistakes usually comes out on top," Silver Creek coach Mike Apodaca said. "Whether it be turnovers or a blown coverage at the end of the half, those are just mistakes that are going to come back and bite you, and they did.
"(The Wizards) took advantage, so congratulations to them." Though Austin Apodaca finished with respectable passing numbers, completing 22-of-39 passes for 315 yards and a touchdown. Windsor made sure it was all for naught, recovering a pair of fumbles and picking off two Apodaca passes.
Entering the game, Apodaca had thrown only eight interceptions on 325 pass attempts. "Our defense was huge," Wizards senior running back/free safety Aaron Schmidt said. "(The Raptors) had a couple big plays, but we kept our heads and made great plays. Our defense stepped up. We knew that their offense was good, but we worked on (defending) it all week, and it showed."
Joe Sanger ran for 100 yards and a touchdown and threw for another score Saturday as Windsor beat Silver Creek 14-7 in the Class 3A championship game at Legacy Stadium. It was the third state football title in school history for the Wizards. After missing most of the season with a broken collar bone, Jacob Molina had 48 yards receiving and a touchdown. Jordan Porterfield ran for 56 yards for the Wizards (13-1), who won the school's third state title. Austin Apodaca was 22-for-39 for 313 yards and a touchdown and two interceptions, Greg Reynolds had 122 yards receiving and Ryan Rankin caught five passes for 90 yards and a touchdown for the Raptors. Silver Creek, which was playing in its first title game, had four turnovers. Sanger scored the winning touchdown on a 2-yard run early in the fourth quarter. It capped a drive in which Windsor converted on two fourth-down plays, the first on a fake punt near midfield.
Windsor's stout defense was the beneficiary of four turnovers, which helped pave the way for a huge upset just two months after a 41-21 home loss to this same Silver Creek team in a September nonleague game.
