BROOMFIELD, Colo. (KKCO) -- In his first game as the Wildcats head coach, Sean Mulvey had to be happy with his defense.

Fruita Monument held No. 5 Broomfield to just six points through the first three quarters, but saw the Eagles pull away with a pair of touchdowns and an 18-6 win over FMHS in a non-league game at Broomfield High School on Friday.

The Eagles jumped out to a 6-0 lead on their first drive, but had the extra point blocked by FMHS senior Braden Bair. The Wildcats got a pair of field goals from Spencer Fair to tie the game at 6-6 at the end of the third quarter.

Broomfield then drove 79 yards for a touchdown to begin the fourth quarter and take a 12-6 lead (extra point missed). They added another 25-yard touchdown drive following a Wildcats turnover to make it 18-6.

The Wildcats (0-1) will play at No. 4 Cherokee Trail on Friday, September 2nd.
