Colfax cruises into semifinals

Colfax did what it does.

On the fifth snap of their first possession in their State 2B quarterfinal game at Gonzaga Prep Saturday afternoon, the Bulldogs turned a short swing pass into a 50-yard touchdown.

South Bend answered four plays later with a 53-yard scoring pass.

Big mistake.

“We had our ups and downs,” Colfax senior Will Hatley said. “(The early South Bend score) kind of woke us up. We knew this team would not lay down. They’re a worthy opponent.”

Trouble is for South Bend, the Bulldogs have more bite than bark. Colfax proceeded to roll to a 37-6 win and a semifinal berth next weekend in the Tri-Cities against the DeSales Irish (8-3), who edged previously unbeaten La Salle 29-27. Colfax beat the Irish 33-14 on Sept. 18.
