The Class 3A football battle between Frederick and Silver Creek has been voted as the BoCoPreps.com Game of the Week.
Frederick vs. Silver Creek received 32.65 percent of the votes by BoCoPreps.com readers. The cross-town rivalry between Broomfield and Legacy and the St. Vrain Invite cross country meet tied for second, at 20.41 percent. The football game between Erie and Holy Family (17.35 percent) and a softball game between Niwot and Broomfield (9.18) rounded out the voting.
Frederick (1-0) visits Silver Creek (0-1) tonight at 7 p.m. at Everly-Montgomery Field for a game that will test the strength of both teams. Both played in the Class 3A state football playoffs last year and both figure to be among the top 10 or 12 teams in 3A again this year.
Coming off a physical 6-0 win over Prairie View, Frederick has won seven consecutive regular season games and eight of nine overall. The Warriors aren’t ranked, but were second among “others receiving votes” in the latest Denver Post media poll. Silver Creek is ranked, although the Raptors dropped from No. 3 to No. 10 after a 36-35 loss to Class 2A No. 4 Kent Denver. The Raptors are looking to rebound and avoid a 0-2 hole.
