Fruita Rides Running Game To Week One Win

GRAND JUNCTION - The Fruita Wildcats opened their 2008 season with a 35-16 win against the Montbello Warriors on Saturday at Stocker Stadium.

The Wildcats scored five times, all of which came on the ground. Fullback Sean Hillman scored three times. Quaterback Brett Nankervis and tail-back Mike Cambell each hit paydirt once.

Nankervis put Fruita on the board in the first quarter with a 43 yard run after tucking the ball on an option to the left side of the field. Hillman would do the damage on the next three scores, all of which came on carries inside the five yard line.

Fruita travels to Bear Creek next week to face the top ranked team in the state of Colorado.
