CENTAURI – Kyle Forster
The 6th ranked Falcons collected an impressive non-league win over #4 Florence 28-20. The win should push the Falcons up higher in the 1A RPI rankings.
PUEBLO SOUTH – Ryan Goddard
In maybe the game of the night, Pueblo South scored twice in the final four minutes to knock off Durango 35-34. The winning score came with 14 seconds left in the game and pushed the Colts to the 3A South Central lead.
LIMON – Mike O’Dwyer
The Badgers picked up a solid 40-9 win at Wray on Friday setting up a huge showdown with Holyoke in the final week. The winner will land the North Central championship and a probable top two playoff seed.
STRATTON/LIBERTY – Toby Kechter
The defending state champions used a strong first half to move past Flagler/Hi Plains and win the East Central championship. It was the eighth straight win for the defending state champions.
PIKES PEAK CHRISTIAN – Kelvin Thorne
For the second straight, the Eagles collect the 8man Southern championship. They earned the title with a 33-8 road win at Swink on Friday.
RIFLE – Damon Wells
Trailing Basalt 9-7 on the road in the fourth quarter, the top ranked Bears scored twice in the final period to grab the 21-9 win and the 2A Western Slope championship. They also improved to 8-0 on the campaign.
FRUITA MONUMENT – Cameron Ross
The Wildcats stayed unbeaten in the Pioneer conference with a convincing win over Hinkley on Thursday night. Fruita closes with Standley Lake and Vista Peak; their two strongest challengers for the league crown.
HORIZON – Frank Ybarra
The Hawks grabbed their third win in four games with a solid 20-10 win over Rocky Mountain. Both teams are now 3-1 in the Front Range conference but the Hawks have the tiebreaker for second based on this win.
