FRUSTRATION has set in for the Adams State football team and its followers. It was on display Saturday in the Grizzlies 52-20 Homecoming Game loss to CSU-Pueblo.
Adams State opened up in a no-huddle offense that hit on a 58-yard strike and put the Grizzlies in scoring position right off the bat. Eventually, Adams State fumbled the football, Colorado State-Pueblo scored later in the first quarter and built up a 31-7 halftime lead.
The Grizzlies were more competitive in the second half, but were still out scored 21-13. Quarterback Marckell Grayson also had a tough game, throwing a touchdown but also two turnovers. Thunderwolves quarterback Hunter Raquel had a strong performance, tossing three touchdowns. The Grizzlies have now lost 11 straight to CSU Pueblo.
ASU slippled to 1-5, 1-3 in the RMAC. CSU-Pueblo improved to 3-3 overall, 2-2 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
Adams State QB Marckell Grayson was 19-for-31 for 223 yards and one touchdown. The scoring pass went to Elijah Harper, one of his four catches and 73 yards in receptions.
CSU-Pueblo’s Hunter Raquel was 16-for-25 for 206 yards and three touchdowns. McGarity was the Thunderwolves’ leading receiver with five catches for 63 yards.
The Grizzlies will travel to Chadron, Neb., to take on the Chadron State Eagles, who won their game Saturday against Fort Lewis, 56-3.
