KFTM Sports Update 10/30/23
Wiggins and Brush football are headed to the playoffs while the Fort Morgan Mustangs dropped their home finale on Friday night. Tied at 7 at the half, the Mustangs were outscored (32-10) in the final two frames and lost to Northfield on Senior night (39-17). Fort Morgan has one more game remaining in the regular season which will take place on Friday at the Lutheran Lions. Kickoff at 7pm on hometown radio KFTM, 94.1 FM, and online at medialogicradio.com
A (35-21) loss at Wray on Friday, didn’t keep the Wiggins Tigers out of the 1A playoffs, but does have them on the road rather than staying home in the opening round. The Eagles’ win has them hosting Centauri as the number seven seed, while the 9th ranked Tigers head to (9-0) Banning Lewis on Saturday afternoon. Kickoff from Colorado Springs is set for 1pm.
Brush sophomore running back Ritchie Bruno eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark as the Diggers rolled in Timnath (44-17). The win for Brush actually dropped them one spot to number 14 in the final seeding index. The Diggers drew third ranked Rifle and will have to make a second trip across the mountains to battle the Bears in the opening round. Brush and Rifle played back in week 4, with the Bears getting the (28-14) home win. Kickoff is set for Saturday at 1pm in Rifle.
In volleyball scores from Friday, Wiggins swept Wray to close out the regular season (19-4). The Lady Tigers should be the top overall seed in class 2A when regional brackets are released later today. Weldon Valley joins Wiggins in the postseason after a (3 set) home victory over Lone Star. The Lady Warriors are currently ranked 12th in the most up to date seeding index. Stay tuned to KFTM for more information and broadcast schedule for Wiggins Lady Tiger volleyball starting this weekend.
And finally, congratulations to the Wiggins boys Cross country team who placed third at the State Championships in Colorado Springs. Chase Bodine was the Tigers top placer and finished in 10th.
