PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - It took a blocked extra point and a late-game stand, but Pueblo South walked out of Dutch Clark Stadium Friday with the cannon still booming black.

Pueblo held on to beat Pueblo East 20-19 in a thriller of a 2021 Cannon Game. Colts senior quarterback Jace Bellah was the star of the night, rushing for a touchdown on offense and returning an interception for a touchdown in the second half.

“It was definitely one of the most amazing games I’ve played,” Bellah said following the win. “The most fun, the most thrilling game. That was a good East team. Top-10 matchup, and it was cannon. I couldn’t have asked for a better night.”

Pueblo South wins the cannon for the third straight year.
