Englewood dominated in their opening game of the 2018 football season, combining for 331 yards of total offense. They blew out Weld Central 41-0, and it was a solid start to what looks to be a promising season for the Pirates.

Starting quarterback Mason Robertson (11) went 10-14 with 159 yards all coming in the first half. Robertson completed two touchdown passes, one to Milo Fernandez (11), and the second to Nate Gravagno (10). Reuben Saucedo (9) replaced Robertson in the second half completing a 10 yard pass on his only attempt.

Rushing yards for the Pirates came in large bunches, and often. Senior running back Ikaika Gonzalez-Bentosino rushed for 132 yards on 13 carries, while Terryn Bacca (11) and Shawn Fox (9) both combined for 30 yards on 10 carries for the Pirates.

Moving on to next week, Robertson says talent will only take them so far, “I think we were better prepared than Weld, we had our core set of guys working hard through the summer into the season. We showed that we were more talented than them, and now we need to work on the skills and fundamentals that are needed to beat stronger, tougher opponents.”

Additional game notes: There were two injuries for the Pirates, Zachary Cave (10) is recovering from surgery to repair a broken tibia suffered in the third quarter. Terryn Bacca (11) suffered a concussion just before halftime as well.
