Similar Style and Familiar Foes

There are two Westernslope teams left in the high school football playoffs.

The Montrose Indians are heading into the 4A State Tournament quarterfinals after a 28-13 win against No. 11 Brighton a week ago. Now they have the tough task of playing No. 5 Pueblo West.

The Cyclones have the same record as the Indians (10-1) and are a little more balanced when it comes to offense.

Montrose hosts Pueblo West Saturday November 23, at 12:00 p.m.

And the Delta/Basalt game must be the most anticipated 2A rematch of the season. The Panthers and Longhorns meet up in the state semi-finals, where Delta took the first round 35-6 in the regular season.

There are a few differences since October 18. Both teams have improved and now the game will be at Basalt high school because the Longhorns took out No. 1 Rifle in the second round of the tournament.

This game will kick off Saturday at 1:00 p.m. from Basalt High School.
