GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- The first time Luke McLean stepped on the field Friday night, his team had a 14-0 lead. Jam'r Rhodes returned the opening kick-off for a touchdown and Connor Charlesworth returned an interception 80 yards for a touchdown to pace Palisade to a 28-14 win over Delta in a 3A WSL game at Stocker Stadium.
Delta (5-5, 3-4) is likely eliminated from the 3A playoffs. No. 2 Palisade (9-1, 6-1) finished 2nd in league play behind Glenwood Springs. The Bulldogs will likely play their first playoff game next weekend at Stocker Stadium.
