Moffat County takes on Glenwood Springs in important league game
October 11, 2012
The Moffat County football team looks to get back above .500 on the season tonight when it takes on Glenwood Springs at the Bulldog Proving Grounds.
On paper, it looks like another matchup of even teams in Western Slope League play. Though just 2-4 on the year, Glenwood had to begin its season in difficult fashion.
The Demons played their first three games of the season at Conifer, vs. Palisade and at Rifle, all ranked in the top 10 of the Denver Post Football Poll.
After the difficult start, Glenwood rattled off consecutive wins over Steamboat Springs (55-12) and Delta (41-20), before losing last week to Eagle Valley.
The Bulldogs beat Steamboat, but lost to Delta, Rifle and Eagle Valley, making it tough to see many differences between the teams based on common opponents.
Moffat County's pass defense will have to be at its best, as the Demons have gained more through the air this season than on the ground. Quarterback Travis Lundin has attempted more than 15 passes in every game this season except one, and is completing them nearly 70 percent of the time.

Both teams are fighting for their lives in the WSL. Moffat County is 1-3 and Glenwood 2-3 in league play, but the winner of tonight's game will be back in the top half of the league.
