Colton traveled to Granger, Wash., Aug. 30 to meet Sunnyside Christian in the season-opener for both and the Wildcats went down 64-34.

In a Southeast 1B league game, Colton lead early before Sunnyside Christian put together seven consecutive touchdowns to take control of the game.

Colton went up 20-16 in the second quarter when Parker Druffel threw to Reece Chadwick for a 19-yard touchdown. Soon after the Knights pushed ahead as quarterback Kyler Marsh scored for what would later total four rushing touchdowns and three touchdown passes.

In the third quarter, Sunnyside Christian outscored Colton 20-0, keeping possession through two onside kicks, so Colton never ran an offensive play in the period.

Druffel finished the game 22-for-38 for 209 yards and three touchdowns while Chadwick had eight receptions for 109 yards and two touchdowns. Luke Vining caught 13 passes for 99 yards and a touchdown. Druffel also ran for 98 yards.
