Central football took No. 8 Palisade to the brink on Friday.
Sophomore quarterback Max Marsh led a two-minute drill that tied the game at the end of regulation before Palisade won in overtime, 20-14.
Despite the loss head coach Shawn Marsh says his team could build off their performance.
"I like the attitude the kids had as far as not quitting," Marsh says. "Coming back and being able to drive the field and score at the end and put it into overtime shows me a lot and shows a lot about a team's character when something like that happens. It took a bit to get into the game. Second half they came out and were much more relaxed and we did a much better job in the second half."
The Bulldogs shut the Warriors out at halftime.
"We had some new guys on the line, new receivers and I think we got better as the game came on," sophomore quarterback Max Marsh says. "We were able to connect with each other."
Central will take on Grand Junction on Friday at 8 P.M.at Stocker Stadium.
