Triple R’s Bold Prediction of the Game:

“La Junta has been blowing through 2A football this year, I don’t see them slowing down anytime soon. Their defense is too tough, TCA will put up a fight but the Tigers come out on top.”

Triple R’s game Prediction:

“La Junta defeats TCA rather easily 35-20.”


If the Tigers win this game, they should cruise to the Tri-Peaks League title and a #1 seed in the playoffs. A loss and the Tigers fall no further than #5. Colorado Springs is the place to be for Tiger fans, but if you can’t make it Pat & Chas have you covered on AM 1400 and network1sports.com.

John Mall swept Rocky, But there’s bad news for the Panthers, they’ll be playing a completely different Meloneer squad, one who is on a hot streak. Rocky gets out early and never looks back.”

Triple R’s Game Prediction:

“Meloneers dominate the whole night, Rocky Ford defeats John Mall in 3 sets.”



Well there you have it. It’s going to be a big night for sports action. And there’s more to come. Tomorrow we highlight the Otero Rattlers Basketball teams in their “Midnight Madness” activities. Stay tuned!
