DENVER (AP) - Adonis Ameen-Moore rushed for 186 yards and two touchdowns to lead Mullen to its third straight Class 5A state championship with a 37-6 victory over Regis Jesuit at Invesco Field.
Top-seeded Mullen (13-0), which has won 33 straight games and has played in six of the last seven state 5A championships, led 10-0 after the first quarter and had a 31-0 advantage at halftime.
Ameen-Moore had runs of 27 and 9 yards in the second quarter. Rayshon Williams also had a pair of first-half rushing touchdowns.
