The Colts where scheduled to host Mead on Saturday at Dutch Clarke Stadium at 1 P.M.

"I feel bad for Mead," explained Colts senior wide receiver Luke Guarienti. "That just stinks with how COVID does that to them. We felt the same way because pf the first two weeks with us, as we had to sit out. I feel so bad because its a playoff game too."

Pueblo South will now advance to the 3A semifinals game, were they await the winner of Roosevelt and Fort Morgan.
