After games ending Saturday, Oct. 8
Nearly all the top teams in Colorado took care of business, leaving the rankings largely intact this week. Only Arapahoe, previously ranked No. 9, fell in a 40-23 loss to Bear Creek. The new team in the POWERADE Weekly Rankings is Monarch, and the Coyotes are no slouches; the team has outscored opponents by a 222-35 margin this season. And who needs defense? Seven of the top 10 teams scored 40 or more points.
1. Valor Christian — defeated Rock Canyon, 58-13 (last week: No. 1)
2. Mullen — defeated Chatfield, 41-14 (last week: No. 2)
3. Grand Junction — defeated Grand Junction Central, 47-0 (last week: No. 3)
