Radio: Grand Junction Central and Palisade to battle for the WarDog football trophy

(Gabriel Christus/Denver Broncos)

It's Week 4 of the high school football season which means that non-league games are coming to a close and rivalries are getting dialed up.

Throughout the state, plenty of radio broadcasts will feature games with big implications, some within the coaches poll and RPI and others for nothing other than pride.

Class 3A

(3) Palisade at Grand Junction Central

Time: 7 p.m.

Station: The Team 1340

The matchup: Lat year's battle for the WarDog Trophy went in favor of Palisade, but they'll be fighting the injury bug this time around. Cam Tucker won't be suiting up for the Bulldogs as Jim Davis announced on his show Friday morning. Central, meanwhile, will have Kole Taylor going so from a personnel standpoint, the Warriors may have the edge.

Check out the game on the Team 1340.

Class 2A

Highland at Valley

Time: 7 p.m.

Station: KFKA 1310

Clark Johnson on the matchup: The Huskies rolled the Vikes last year 49-7 in Gilcrest, but it may just be a little different this year as Valley brings a 2-0 record into the game. Led by QB Servando Perez and RB’s Jeff Gore and Eli Knowles the Vikings will try and get their running game going against a terrific Highland defense led by Blake Fabrizius and Holden Morgan. The Huskies have split their first two games in 2019 and look to win again versus Valley.

Coverage begins on 1310 KFKA at 6:30.

Broncos senior Josh Yancey continues to hold a hot hand with 7 touchdowns in the first three weeks.
