The Indians and Falcons lived up to the hype and then some, as Loveland won the battle of unbeaten teams and finished the 2020 regular season a perfect 6-0.
LOVELAND, Colo. — The first 9Preps Thursday night Game of the Week was an instant classic.
In a battle of 5-0 teams at Ray Patterson Field, it was 4A No. 5 Loveland beating No. 6 Skyline by a score of 27-26 in overtime to secure a perfect 6-0 regular season. The Falcons closed the 2020 campaign at 5-1.
A close game the whole way, the Indians led 12-7 at halftime and the two teams found themselves tied at 20 after regulation.
In overtime, Skyline struck first but couldn’t convert a two-point conversion. Loveland took advantage with a quick-strike TD and then an extra point to win the game 27-26.
At 6-0, the Indians are a safe bet to secure a spot in the 4A playoffs with the bracket announced on Sunday. Skyline will await their fate after a very strong six-game audition.
Only eight teams in each classification will participate in the postseason and battle for a state championship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
