In the last game of the season, the Glenwood Springs Middle School seventh-grade football team played its best game of the year, defeating a previously unbeaten Rifle team 14-0 on Thursday.

Glenwood ended its season 5-1 with a share of their league’s best record.

The offense did a nice job of moving the ball, with Henry Hill scoring an 80-yard touchdown run and the defense putting forth a stingy effort.

Key performers on offense were Travis Lundin, Cole Adams, Jonathan Duarte, Tristan Denton, Angel Viera, Porter Biggs, Adam Sobke, Ryer Tate and Caleb Law.

On defense, key performers were Rego Omerigic, Chris Sarabia, Garrett Lowe, Caleb Thornton, Grady Kellogg, Scott Elmore, Cody Chandler, Hunter Amaya, Neeke Medino, Zachery Beeler, Dylan Hagan and Henry Hill.
