Rams football, Demons volleyball enter playoffs

Last Friday’s 46-7 win over Basalt moved Roaring Fork into the No. 3 position in Rocky Preps’ final Class 2A state football poll for the 2005 season.The Rams’ current ranking reflected a move up from the No. 4 spot Roaring Fork has held in previous weeks.Leading into Saturday’s first round of the 2A playoffs, the Rams are one of only three teams in the classification to end the regular season unbeaten at 9-0.All three teams will host games.Roaring Fork faces Tri-Peaks Conference runner-up Lamar (8-1) in Carbondale. That game kicks off at noon. The winner from that contest plays either No. 1 Faith Christian, the Denver Metropolitan Conference champion, or unranked Burlington (6-3) from the Patriot Conference next week.Victories by Roaring Fork and Faith Christian would result in a coin flip to determine the home site for the Nov. 12 quarterfinal game between the two schools.The situation is clearer if Roaring Fork wins and if Burlington pins an upset on Faith Christian. That scenario has the Rams taking a 336-mile cross-state trip for the next round.Buena Vista, the third undefeated team in 2A, plays Eaton (6-3).The rest of the first-round playoff bracket has wild-card entry Holy Family (6-3) at Pagosa Springs, Colorado Springs Christian (7-2) at Roosevelt (8-1), Monte Vista (7-2) at Brush, St. Mary’s (5-4) at Kent Denver (7-2) and Gunnison (5-4) at Platte Canyon (6-3).All football playoff games are scheduled to be played at 1 p.m. Saturday.In playoff action involving area volleyball teams, Glenwood Springs is at Sterling High School for the Class 4A, Region A tournament Saturday. Along with the Demons, the four-team field includes host Sterling, Niwot and Western Slope League foe Palisade.The top two teams with the best records from each of the four regional tournaments move to the 4A state tournament on Nov. 11-12 at the Denver Coliseum.
