FOOTBALL

Pine Creek (5-1): The Eagles moved to 5-1 via forfeit victory over an injury-riddled Cheyenne Mountain squad. Pine Creek dropped to No. 10 in the state, but stayed atop the regional rankings ahead of Friday’s game at Mesa Ridge (4-2).

Discovery Canyon (6-0): Still unbeaten and coming off a 63-0 win over a Littleton team still looking for a win, the Thunder stayed solid in the No. 2 spot and are No. 14 in the state. Friday’s matchup at a 6-0 Thomas Jefferson squad would seemingly present the Thunder another chance to climb the rankings.

Fountain-Fort Carson (4-3): The 41-7 victory over winless Douglas County wasn’t enough to keep the Trojans in the state’s Top 25, but F-FC held on to the No. 3 spot in the area ahead of Friday’s home game vs. Chaparral (1-6).

Palmer Ridge (4-2): A third consecutive lopsided win, this one a 58-6 mauling of Lutheran, saw the Bears stay at No. 4 in the area. Palmer Ridge gets another struggling squad in Littleton on Friday before closing the season with Thomas Jefferson, crosstown rival Lewis-Palmer and Discovery Canyon.

Harrison (6-0): The Panthers climbed into the rankings after drilling Falcon 42-0. Al Melo’s bunch has a chance to start 7-0 with Canon City (1-5) visiting Friday.
