Creek Dominates Arvada West in Homecoming Football Game: See Moments Here


Quinn Rudnick

The two teams line up for a Creek offensive drive. Creek’s offensive dominated the game, scoring six touchdowns.

The Bruins dominated the Arvada West Wildcats at the homecoming game on Friday, Sept. 16, winning 62-21.

Tying the first quarter 7-7, the Bruin’s pulled away 48-7 in the second quarter, and never let Arvada West make a comeback.

Being only the fourth week of the season, the varsity football team continues to showcase what it takes to be the best in the state. Though the Bruins brought home a win, most the night was about more than just the football.

“The game is usually entertaining,” Principal Ryan Silva said about homecoming. “But it really is the event that allows for seeing friends from the past, showing pride for the school, and feeling connected to Creek again.”

Silva emphasizes the importance of homecoming as it is “one of the rare opportunities” where past, present, and future students and staff can feel united.
