Montrose High School football heads to Palmer Ridge Friday for a highly anticipated matchup between two of the best teams in 4A. Currently, Palmer Ridge is ranked No. 1 in 4A, and Montrose is three spots behind, at No. 4. Both teams are 5-0. The stage is set. 

The matchup is widely anticipated across the state, and was highlighted  by Colorado Preps and The Denver Post in their Week 6 previews. Montrose and Palmer Ridge are in the same league, and a win for either side could tip the scales when playoff seeding is determined later this season.
