RANGELY | Two of the top-ranked teams in the state took to the field last Friday night as the Rangely Panthers hosted the West Grand Mustangs.
Both teams headed into the game undefeated with high powered offenses in what looked to be a high scoring affair.
The Mustangs, who average 46.6 points per game, received the opening kickoff and found out early that the Panthers were going to make them earn every yard. The teams battled back and forth and by the end of the first half, the Panthers were down 0-8.
The Panthers, who average 45.25 points a game themselves, struggled on the offensive side of the ball and were held out of the end zone until the fourth quarter.
The final score was 8-20 with West Grand taking the win as both teams were held to season lows for points scored. The Panthers next face Hayden on Friday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m.
