The Delta Panthers and Rifle Bears will meet in the 2A State Football Championship after the Panthers beat Moffat County and the Bears beat last year's state champion Eaton.
No. 1 seeded Delta beat No. 12 seeded Moffat County in convincing fashion with a 28-10 victory at Panther Stadium. Meanwhile, No. 3 Rifle had a tough matchup against No. 15 seeded Eaton. The Reds might be a lower seed this year, but this team just came off three straight state championships. The Bears were able to overcome the odds and beat Eaton 24-15 to advance to the state championship game, which will be held on the campus of CSU Pueblo at the ThunderBowl next Saturday, November 25th at 5 p.m.
In 4A, The Montrose Red Hawks also sealed their ticket to the next round of the playoffs with a 26-7 win over Windsor. The Red Hawks' run game was almost unstoppable as Blake Griffin scored multiple touchdowns. Montrose will play No. 2 Erie in the 4A State Semifinals.
