ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The top spot has been overthrown.
After a dominant run in 2020, Dakota Ridge, which was ranked No. 1 in the Class 4A state playoffs, was taken out by No. 4-seed Loveland 20-14 in the semifinal round on Saturday at Englewood High School.
The victory keeps the Indians undefeated on the season, improving to 8-0 overall.
Loveland will square off against No. 2-seed Palmer Ridge in the 4A state championship game. The title game is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Friday at CSU-Pueblo.
