Triple R Report’s Game(s) of the Day September 9th, 2016: Limon Badgers vs. Crowley County Chargers (CHSAA Class 1A Football)

We’re nearing the end of Week 3 for high school sports and it is time for some “Friday Night Lights”. Two big games are featured in this edition of the “Triple R Report’s Game(s) of the Day”. The first being when the Limon Badgers head down Highway 71 to take on the Crowley County Chargers. These two teams were apart of the former South Central League and had some great matchups, but now the Chargers are apart of the “new” Santa Fe League while the Badgers are apart of the North Central League. Just because they’re in different leagues doesn’t mean it will be any less of a fight. Here is how each team stacks up heading into the game:


LIMON BADGERS:

  • (1-0) Overall in 2016, has yet to play a league game
    • Defeated Rocky Ford 21-6 last Friday
  • Currently tied for 1st in North Central League
    • Tied with Holyoke (1-0)

    • Colton Gruntorad lead team with 4 receptions for 55 yards (13.8 yards per catch)

Triple R’s Bold Prediction of the Game:

“Crowley County is once again dominate in 1A football. They’re going to continue their dominance this year. Limon has also been on the rise for the past couple of years. This game is going to be a close one and come down to the final possession.”

 

Triple R’s Game Prediction:

“Chargers defeat Badgers 28-21.”


Head on down to Charger Field in Ordway for some great football action. It won’t be anything short of exciting. That will do it for game 1 of “Triple R Report’s Game(s) of the Day”, next up is La Junta heading to Alamosa.
