COLORADO SPRINGS — On Saturday, Garry Berry Stadium hosted a pair of games, one of which had plenty of playoff implications on the line.

In the matinee, the Coronado Cougars cruised past the Widefield Gladiators, 27 to 19, in the final game of the season for both teams.

Coronado finished the year at 3-2, while Widefield would not see a win in 2020.

In the evening game, Pine Creek hosted Regis Jesuit in a must-win game for the Eagles. Pine Creek head coach Todd Miller, along with his offensive and defensive coordinators, were not in attendance due to COVID-19.

A win for the Eagles would guarantee them a playoff spot in the 4A playoffs, while the Raiders needed a win to stay in contention in the 5A playoff picture.

After trading blows all night, the game came down to a 25-yard field goal by Regis Jesuit senior Jaden Ohlsen. With two-seconds to go, Ohlsen would nail the field goal to give the Raiders the 17 to 14 win.

The loss moved Pine Creek to 2-2, with no guarantee of making the playoffs.
