Palmer Ridge 28, Pueblo West 27 (2OT)
At Palmer Ridge: The Bears had already beaten Pueblo West, 41-14, this year, so confidence was high.
The Cyclones stayed in the game until the last play. They went for two, down 28-27 in double overtime to win it, but fell short. Both teams scored in the first overtime, while the Cyclones missed a pair of potential winning field goals in the final four minutes of regulation.
Senior and UNLV commit Anthony Costanzo also suffered an injury, which will be a storyline to watch moving into the team's next round against No. 5 Erie.
