A State championship birth was on the line on Saturday afternoon in Monument and Palmer Ridge came out with their tickets punched. They defeated the Palisade Bulldogs 28-14 in the state semi-finals.
Palisade tied the ballgame up at 14 midway through the third quarter, but the next play the Bears took the kickoff to the house to make it 21-14. Palisade could never respond the rest of the way.
The Bulldogs end their season with a still impressive 10-3 record on the year.
