Hosting the Battle Mountain Huskies on Friday for Homecoming, the Rifle Bears quickly took care of business at home as the boys in blue and yellow rolled to a 52-6 win at Bears Stadium in front of a Homecoming crowd.

Opening league play at home with the Huskies, the Bears never left this game in doubt on their way to picking up a big 3A Western Slope League win at home.

With the win, Rifle pushes its season record to 5-1 through six games. A trip to Summit looms next Friday before a home date with Eagle Valley the following week.


On the road for a big 1A Western Slope League matchup between the 4-1 Grand Valley Cardinals and the 5-0 Meeker Cowboys, the Cardinals had a rough go of things in a 52-6 loss in Meeker.

Riding high after a big 33-6 win last week against Olathe at home, the Cardinals simply couldn’t get it going against the defending 1A WSL champs.

Sitting at 4-2 (1-1) on the season, the Cardinals will travel to Hotchkiss next week looking to right the ship.
