Cimarron-Memorial beat Cheyenne 44-7 in the Northwest Division opener for both schools.
“Our execution on defense, especially in the second half, was unacceptable,” Cheyenne coach Perryn Hale said.
Senior running back Stephen Nixon came through on big plays for Cimarron, but despite missed tackles, Hale was satisfied with containing Nixon.
“A player like that, you can’t stop him, you can only contain him and I thought we did a decent job of that.”
