Cimarron Memorial High School football player Christian Brown.

Christian Brown rushed for 305 yards and four touchdowns in the Cimarron-Memorial High football team’s 37-18 victory against visiting Faith Lutheran.

Faith Lutheran's pass-first offense has given opponents fits this year but was limited to 21 plays in the first half with Brown’s tough running controlling the clock. Cimarron led 17-0 at the break and never looked back.

Faith Lutheran quarterbackJoe Portaro passed for 300 yards and two touchdowns but also was intercepted three times.

Cimarron’s Brandon Robinson returned one of the interceptions for a touchdown — the second time he has done so in as many weeks.

“We got some pressure on Portaro,” Cimarron coach Rod Vollan said. “They weren’t able to get into a rhythm.”

After dropping its opener in lopsided fashion to Las Vegas High, Cimarron (2-1) has bounced back to open Northwest Division play with a pair of victories. Last week, they only gave up eight points against Cheyenne.

“The kids were unsure after that first game,” Vollan said. “We didn’t have our identity yet. But we’ve always done a good job of not getting too high or too low after a game. We just looks at what we did wrong and try to fix it the next day. That’s what we did after the Vegas game.”
