    On homecoming night, who could ask for more than high-stakes football against one of the top teams in the state?

    Unfortunately, Brighton’s big night didn’t go the way they hoped, as they were defeated by fourth-ranked Skyline 41-17 in a game that was closer than the score suggests.

  • Football: Ravens get unplanned week away

    FORT LUPTON – Riverdale Ridge's football team has an unplanned week off this week, and it could not have come at a better time.

    "We're just running out of bodies," said coach Wayne Voorhees. "We're going to have a bye week, which will be good for us."
