Hayden squads focus on postseason games


— As the football and volleyball seasons wind down, both squads are focusing their sights on the postseason.
Tonight, the volleyball team will look to even their 6-7 record for the season and get some momentum going into the district tournament when Hayden hosts Plateau Valley.
Actions starts at 5 p.m. The varsity is expected to take the court at 7 p.m.
The Hayden football team, tied for first place in the conference, will attempt to keep their place on top of the standings when the team hosts Grand Valley at 1 p.m. Saturday.
The volleyball team will be entering its match tonight fresh off a victory Tuesday night against Moffat County's junior varsity.
Hayden defeated the squad in three games.
The Tigers will try to continue the winning streak tonight against the Cowboys. Earlier in the season, the Tigers defeated the Cowboys there in two games.
"I think Plateau Valley has improved since we last played them," said Kipp Rillos, Hayden's head coach. "But I also would like to believe we have improved also.
"I am looking for the girls to even up our record. We need to try and get some momentum going into districts."
After tonight's game, the Tigers, who are 4-5 in league, will play in the district tournament.
The round-robin tournament will be held in Steamboat Springs Oct. 28.
The football team has two games left in the season. Hayden comes into Saturday's game off a big victory over Plateau Valley last weekend.
The Tigers' 6-0 win over the Cowboys has forced a tie between the two teams in the league standings.
Both teams have 3-1 records with two games to play.
The Tigers, 4-3, will be taking on a Cardinal team that has yet to win a game this season. The Cardinals are 0-6.
Hayden defeated Grand Valley earlier in the season by a score of 45-13.
Tiger head coach Kevin Kleckler believes his team is playing with a lot of confidence.
The Tigers will end their season on the road. The team will travel to take on West Grand at 1 p.m. Oct. 28.
