Grand Junction dropped their week one game to FRuita, 30-7, despite controlling the game for most of the first half.
"Both sides of the ball got to compete," senior quarterback Clay Payne says. "We had a mishap last game that we need to fix."
Fruita outscored the Tigers 16-0 in the second half thanks to running back Braedan Graham.
The senior rushed for 228 yards with 142 of them coming in the first half.
"I think they are big and physical," head coach Mike Serko says. "When you have a running back of that magnitude I think that wore us down a bit. But we kept battling."
Grand Junction will host Montrose on Thursday at 7 P.M. at Stocker Stadium.
