Thornton 27, Palmer 23

At Palmer: Everything came down to the final minutes for the Terrors. 

The two teams combined to score 26 points in the fourth quarter. Thornton had the last laugh, as its 14-10 lead coming into the last stanza finished largely the same. Palmer carries a 1-8 record into its final matchup with Liberty. 

Fountain-Fort Carson 30, Pueblo West 10

At Fountain-Fort Carson: Test after test, the Trojans continue to pass. 

Fountain-Fort Carson moved to 8-1 Thursday with a win over recently-ranked Pueblo West. It scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. Coronado is all that stands before a top finish for the Trojans as they look to make noise in the 4A postseason.
