Senior Jacob Teeter crosses the goal line in the team's first game Sept. 1 against Ridge View Academy. Teeter and the Moffat County High School football team will need to score big again at 7 p.m. tonight at the Bulldog Proving Grounds in order to stick with Rifle High School's high-powered running offense.

Although an opening-game win for Moffat County High School football was nice, it was expected against a weaker opponent in Ridge View Academy In week two, it’s a different story. The Bulldogs will take on Rifle High School, the defending Western Slope League champions in an important early-season matchup. The Bears enjoyed an undefeated regular season in 2011 but were ousted in the state quarterfinals by Windsor High School. Rifle sports a run early, run often-style offense that rarely puts the ball in the air. In the team’s first game against Coal Ridge High School, a 45-6 win, the Bears ran for 456 yards and passed for none. Against Moffat County last year, Rifle won 48-6. They were able to avoid passing because star running back Ryan Moeller rumbled for 319 yards against the Bulldogs.
