It may have only been the third week of the season, but it was almost a must-win situation Friday for Falcon's football team. The Falcons avoided an 0-3 start and grabbed a 16-14 come-from-behind victory over Pueblo West at home. "We needed something like this to get the confidence and mojo flowing and to get to believing again," Falcon...
A football tradition returns Friday night, one that never should have departed. Lewis-Palmer will tangle with Palmer Ridge under the lights, ending a messy, unnecessary two-season hiatus.

What to know: How is this not the game of the week? One of if not the biggest football rivalries in the area (know of any other games that were placed on hiatus because of social media vitriol, and not necessarily from the students?) returns after a...
Falcon's football team is 0-2. Before the Falcons open conference play Oct. 3, they could be 0-5. Don't expect that to happen, but if that's the case, don't take anything away from them. Of their first five opponents, all five have received votes in The Associated Press top 10 poll. Those opponents, in order, are No. 1 Pine Creek, No. 10...

After getting shut out in its first game of the season last week, Lewis-Palmer didn't waste any time scoring its first points of the season Friday night.
Morgan Bailey took the opening kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown and gave the 3A Rangers a 7-0 lead 12 seconds into the game, spring-boarding them to a 36-18 road win over 4A Sand Creek....
BROOMFIELD - Discovery Canyon needed someone to step up, needed someone to spark the Thunder and lift their spirits after a dominating half translated into a deficit because of a litter of "absolutely terrible" penalties. They got that and then some. Blake Lawrie ran back the second-half kickoff 65 yards for a score and the Associated Press...

Elway was nearly perfect, throwing for four touchdowns in a blowout victory. Elway Tubbs that is.
The Vista Ridge quarterback is doing his best to live up to his namesake, and after one game in 2014, he's doing just fine.
"My parents are huge Broncos fans," said Tubbs, a junior. "It's definitely a lot to live up to, but I love having the...
Widefield didn't play a Week Zero game, but it didn't take long to knock off any rust or jitters Saturday against a Mitchell team that already had a win under its belt.
In their first taste of action in 2014, the 4A Gladiators controlled most of the 48 minutes of play in a 36-6 win at Garry Berry Stadium over the 3A Marauders.
Zach Young was not concerned about the players he left behind at Doherty High School.
“It will be a little hard, but they’ll be able to get it done,” Young said Monday afternoon at CSU-Pueblo. He was offering his thoughts on Friday’s rivalry game vs. Palmer.
Young was correct. Doherty’s Spartans breezed past the Palmer Terrors 42-8 Friday...
What to make of Manitou Springs?
A sloppy, turnover-prone team, one that falters in the spots it flourished during last season's run to the state title game? Or a team that dominates the line of scrimmage, so much so that it can put teams away with an unwavering and predictable run attack?
On Friday, in front of a spirited crowd at...
