The St. Mary's Colgan football team has been named this weeks "Craw-Kan Team of the Week" from the Southeast Kansas area for their 35-18 road victory over Galena in the 3A playoffs on Saturday.

Colgan scored 28 second half points in the contest to take control of the game. It was the Panthers second win over the Bulldog's on the year after they beat them in the first game of the season (16-12).

"It's always tough to play a team twice. Galena is a very good football team, we beat a very nice team," Colgan head coach, Chuck Smith said.

The Panthers were led by Ian Duncan who had six catches for 120 yards on the night from quarterback Ryan Cedeno. Duncan is a tall target who is one of the states best high jumpers. 

With the win, the Panthers (8-2) advance to play Rossville (10-0), the number one team in 3A, at Pittsburg State on Friday at 5 p.m. in the 3A sectionals. Colgan is 76-22 all-time in the state playoffs. If the Panthers win they would take on the winner of Silver Lake/Wellsville in the 3A semifinals.
