Pikes Peak Christian set to battle Fowler in 8-man showdown

Seven teams in Southern Colorado will look to stay in the high school football playoff hunt Saturday.

Two will meet in an 8-man showdown as (10-1) Pikes Peak Christian hits the road to take on undefeated (11-0) Fowler in the semifinals.

"I've always dreamt of this opportunity, now that we're here, we clear our heads and take care of business," senior quarterback Jackson Thorne said. "We circled the date on our calendar and we're ready."

The Eagles will be looking to punch their first ticket to a state title game but it won't be easy against a stout Grizzlies squad.

"We're feeling good, we're feeling confident," senior tailback Hudson Grant said. "We know it's going to take our "A" game and I think we're ready."
