  • Youth football
        Brighton White 12 trounced Boulder 44-0 in youth football action Saturday morning. The contest was stopped after the third quarter because of the league’s mercy rule. The game was scheduled to be in Boulder. But last week’s wildfire forced the game to be moved to Brighton.     It didn’t seem to matter to the Brighton White squad. Brighton turned in a huge first quarter. Braden Forney scored two touchdowns. Drew Petit recorded a quarterback sack. Cameron Ritchey scored as well.
