RIFLE, Colorado – A Nathan Tomlin interception with 5 seconds left ended Rifle’s bid to knock off Moffat County. The visiting Bulldogs defeated the football Bears 21-16 on Friday.

A 20-yard touchdown run by Pablo Salcido put Moffat up by the final score with two minutes left before the Bears rattled off a long drive and nearly stole a win.

But a long, last-second pass by Joe Burgess to try to finish off the final 30 or so yards of that march sailed into Tomlin’s hands.

Burgess had two TD tosses on the night.
