Peetz tops Cheraw, makes quarterfinals


Jennifer Holtz / For The Sun-Telegraph

Peetz High School's Jordan Nelson (No. 1) rushes around the end on Saturday. Nelson scored four touchdowns in the Bulldogs' 41-20 victory over Cheraw.

The Peetz High School football team took to the road Saturday for its playoff game and came home successful – and with a state quarterfinal berth in hand.

The Bulldogs used a strong second half and a four-touchdown afternoon from Jordan Nelson to pull away and defeat Cheraw 41-20 in one of 16 Colorado 6-man cross-divisional games.

Those eight winners were reseeded over the weekend and will comprise this weekend's state quarterfinal field.

Peetz, which improved to 6-3, is seeded No. 5 and will square off against No. 4 Arickaree/Woodlin (8-1). A site and time will be announced by Tuesday.
