CALAHAN -- A fourth quarter spurt by Calahan proved to be the undoing of Karval here last week as the Trojans lost a 20-6 contest. "We had a real solid and hard hitting game going in the first three quarters," slated Coach Tom Heinz. "But, they had a little more manpower and wore us down in the final quarter to pick up the victory." Calahan scored 14 points in the final quarter while Karvat tacked on its eight points in the same period. Doug Stone tallied the touchdown when he scooped up a fumble and ran it into the endzone from about three yards out. Shane Avery ran in the PAT.

Doug Stone had one interception for Karval. Karval had a total offense of 187 yards while Calahan had 245 yards. The Trojans travel to Primero Saturday for a ]:30 game before opening up League action against Arapahoe the following week. 22-8 win over Ellicott last week.
