Durango coach Gary Maki was in awe of his team’s 63-6 victory against Western on Friday night.

Maki said he didn’t expect the Trailblazers to win in such dominating fashion.

“I think offensively, we’re really starting to click,” Maki said. “And the defense has had a real nice past two weeks.”

Julio Mora rushed for 163 yards and three touchdowns for the Trailblazers while Mike Mehling ran for three more.

Durango (7-2) will finish off its regular season with a home game against Bonanza before a first-round playoff clash with Cimarron-Memorial.

Durango lost to Cimarron 54-7 earlier in the year.

“I think we’re mentally in a better place than we were the first time we played them,” Maki said.
