HOTCHKISS, Colo. (KKCO) - It was a huge rivalry matchup over in Hotchkiss, as both the Bruins and the Bulldogs looked to grab the win and move into the state championship game.

It was neck and neck the entire time, with the home team trailing 8-6 going into the half. The third quarter, Galley helped the team take the 12-6 lead, but they could not grab the 2-point conversion.

With seconds to go in the quarter, the Bruins raced to the endzone for Carter Wasser to push it in and take the 16-6 lead.

Unfortunately, three turnovers crushed Hotchkiss, allowing Cedaredge to drain the clock and cruise to the 16-12 victory.

Next weekend, (3)Cedaredge will go on the road to take on (1)Buena Vista for the state championship.
