The Grand Junction Coyotes, a local U-10 hockey team, is two games away from winning the Colorado Amateur Hockey Association State Championship.
Last weekend, the Coyotes won three games to make it to the state semifinals in Denver. With a win against Glenwood Springs, they'll advance to the state title on Sunday in Boulder.
What may be most impressive about the team is that it's made up of a lot of first or second year players. With a chance at a state trophy. The team is feeling a variety of emotions, but the coaches want to make sure the Coyotes keep up what they've done all season.
"We're kind of nervous, but we've been getting ready for this the entire season, so we're really excited and we're just hoping for the best," said Macy McComb.
"It would probably mean a lot to them because most of this team is made up of first years and second years, so it would be really great for them to win it, it would make them feel great." said Sam Meyer.
"Our biggest thing is to have fun," said assistant coach Walter Fox. "If you have fun and you learn to play the right way, good things will happen."
The Coyotes play Glenwood Springs this Saturday in Boulder.
