CASTLE ROCK | The Regis Jesuit football team bounced back from a rare loss with a complete South League victory over Douglas County Friday evening.
Coach Danny Filleman’s Raiders — coming of a loss to Legend that dropped them a game behind in the league standings and ranked No. 10 in CHSAANow.com’s Class 5A football poll after a three-place drop — earned their second victory of the season by shutout and matched their season-high in points scored in a 42-0 win at Douglas County Stadium.
Seniors David Dody and Andrew Kulick rushed for two touchdowns apiece, while sophomore quarterback Exander Carroll threw for a touchdown and ran for one as well as Regis Jesuit improved to 3-1 overall and 2-1 in the South League with a victory over Douglas County (1-1), which was playing just its second game of the season due to coronavirus quarantines.
Dody and Kulick each got into the end zone in the opening quarter to get the Raiders off to a strong start and the lead grew to 21 points in the second quarter when Carroll rolled out and hit Adam Zdanowicz with a short pass that ended up in a 29-yard touchdown.
A 47-yard touchdown run for Dody — part of his game-high 112 yards rushing and his seventh of the season — gave Regis Jesuit a 28-0 halftime edge, which grew again in the third quarter when Kulick, lined up under center, took a keeper up the right sideline and got just inside the pylon for a 27-yard score.
Carroll pushed the game into running clock territory (a lead of 40 or more points) with a 10-yard scramble to the end zone in the final period.
Regis Jesuit’s defense held the Huskies — who won their opener 27-24 in Week 3 — to less than 200 yards of total offense and had a takeaway in an interception from junior defensive back Dervin Taylor.
The Raiders’ scheduled Week 5 matchup is against Doherty (0-4, 0-3) at 6 p.m. Nov. 6 at Lou Kellogg Stadium.
