GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Both the Delta Panthers and Glenwood Springs Demons will have their shot at a spot in the top four when they face off Saturday afternoon.

For the second time this season, Glenwood will host Delta. In their first run through, Glenwood got the best of the Panthers 14-7, but six games have past since, and Delta is ready to put their best foot forward.

"We're going in the right direction," said Delta head coach Ben Johnson. "We need to take the next step, and winning this game Saturday will be a big step in that, and the kids know that, so making it to the semis and throwing our hat into the ring of four would be a big step and something we look forward to doing."

Delta travels to Glenwood for a 1:00 kickoff time. Delta's top running back Jonney Ponce is still questionable for the game. He's been struggling with a high ankle sprain suffered in the last game.

Coach Johnson says he'll be a game-time decision.
