Highlands Ranch Falcons

* Coach: Darrel Gorham

* Record: 0-2

* Key players: Keaton Thames, QB; Alfred Prisco, RB; Danny Galloway, WR; Michael Robinson, LB; Joe Quatrochi, LB.

Fossil Ridge SaberCats

* Coach: Steve Vecchio

* Record: 0-2

* Key players: Travis Avila, QB; Jake Horner, RB; Corey Peter, WR; Caleb Aslor, LB; Michael Reyna, DB; Sam Allsup, DB.

* Inside scoop: Both teams are dying for a win after starting the season with two relatively close losses and something will have to give tonight. Fossil Ridge wide receiver Corey Peter has been huge for the SaberCats early, bringing down nine receptions for 262 yards and two touchdowns.

The Falcons’ Keaton Thames has thrown the ball for good total yardage, but has struggled with his accuracy, only completing 40 percent of his passes.

Expect a good game through the first three quarters, but Fossil Ridge should pull away late and pick up its first victory.
