Clash of the undefeated

Kelley Cox Post Independent

AURORA, Colorado ” The day has arrived. Today is the day when the final Class 3A football game of the season is played. Today is the day when Glenwood Springs or Fort Morgan will claim the Class 3A football state championship.

The game is set to start at 2:30 p.m. at Aurora’s Legacy Stadium.

Glenwood is 13-0 and ranked No. 1 while Fort Morgan is 13-0 and ranked No. 2. It’s truly a clash of 3A titans.

The Demons have dismantled their three playoff opponents with overpowering domination. In the first round, Roosevelt fell at Stubler Memorial Field 52-10; then the defending state champs Berthoud were defeated on their home turf by Glenwood 50-39; finally, Glenwood crushed Mountain View by the score of 47-14.

All three schools come from the Tri-Valley Conference and so does Fort Morgan.

The Mustangs of Fort Morgan have also been dominant in their trek to the finals, beating Elizabeth 32-0, Summit 21-3 and D’Evelyn 42-24.

This will be Glenwood’s third title game in the school’s history. They won state titles in 1978 and 1980. Fort Morgan will be going for its fourth state title; its last was in 1999.

The game will be broadcast on the radio at KMTS 99.1 FM. Listen online at Be Heard! TV’s youth crew will be broadcasting live video from the title game at
