Demons, Mustangs each trying to avenge upset losses in last season’s playoffs

Glenwood QB Dakota Stonehouse passing VS Mountain View.



Two teams, both unbeaten, both with a single goal in mind.

When the final seconds tick off the clock ending today’s Class 3A state football championship at Legacy Stadium in Aurora, one team will bring home the trophy with the gold football, signifying the state title.

Glenwood Springs was upended by Sterling in the first round of last year’s playoffs. Fort Morgan lost to Palisade in last year’s state quarterfinals. As a result, both teams believe they have something to prove this year.

The Mustangs and Demons have both put up some impressive offensive numbers this season.

Only one offense (and one defense) will prevail.
