SOUTHERN COLORADO – What a great night of football!
Week two’s marquee matchup didn’t disappoint, and two other finishes came down to the wire.
Pueblo East picked up a BIG win, defeating Palmer Ridge 28-21 in what could very easily be a preview of the 3A title game. The Eagles defense gave star quarterback Ty Evans fits, causing him to throw five interceptions and kept him out of the end zone while the bears tried to mount a last-minute drive to tie it up. East moves to 2-0 on the season, while Palmer Ridge drops to 1-2.
Two other games came down to the last play. Air Academy held on to beat Falcon 14-13 by forcing a fumble at the goal line to keep Falcon out of the end zone on a fourth down play.
Finally, Cheyenne Mountain won a thriller over Sand Creek 21-20 on a hook and ladder touchdown pass with 30 seconds left!
