The Cougars were paced by Zacari Holbert’s 164 yards rushing and Patrick Ng’s dominance on the defensive line. Holbert scored a touchdown, while Ng racked up 11 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble.
Coronado led 7-6 at the half, and junior Semaj Bolin gave his team some breathing room by returning an interception for a touchdown on the second play after the break. Durango never threatened again.
“That pick-six set the tempo for the second half,” Coronado coach Bill Froman said. “We really kind of clamped down the rest of the way.”
The home win improves Coronado to 1-2 on the season. Durango had been undefeated entering the game, but the Trailblazers fall to 2-1.
