Another compelling matchup is ahead of us on the football field tomorrow night.

The Amherst Broncos will make the trip southeast to the home of the Shelton Bulldogs..

This battle of 4–0 teams kicks off at 7:00 and is our Aurora Cooperative Game of the Week...

Yes, the Denver Broncos with Peyton Manning are 4–0 but they're not the only Broncos 4–0. So are the Amherst Broncos heading to Shelton tomorrow night for our Aurora Cooperative Game of the Week.

We started out defensively well in all the games, our offense came around in our last three games and our special teams have come full circle and have done well in the last two games, said coach Ron Evans.

"Everybody's ready to go and everybody knows how important this game is for us. It ain't going to be easy, I mean last year they beat us pretty bad, 4–0 right now and hopefully we can stay 5–0 this week" said Amherst fullback Mason Klingenhoefer.

The Bronco challenge will come from here, Bulldog country were Shelton is also 4–0 and hasn't missed a beat since playing in last year's state semi–final game. Even though such names as Glenn and Stopkotte are gone, coach Mike Lowe likes the players he has now.

"It's really exciting, we've been tested so far this year with the Fullerton game and we've had some other game we've had good competition so we feel like we're ready for this one but we've got Homecoming this week and should have a big crowd and  it should be exciting for everybody", said Shelton coach Mike Lowe.

"It's going to be a good game so I'm pretty excited for it. They're a hard hitting team and so are we so it should be a good game," said Shelton running back David Jimenez

The experts will be watching this one and we talked to one such high school football observer to get his thoughts.

I like Shelton–Shelton's size in the line, the thing that's really nice about Amherst , it's a team that has kind of come through the ranks together–they're young, they're quick, they're good, they're 4–0, said Huskerland Prep Editor Bob Jensen.

I just don't know that they can handle Shelton's size on the line, I like Shelton to win it.

Will Bob be right, or will Amherst stampede out of Shelton with a victory? Find out tomorrow night on News 5's the Fifth Quarter in our Aurora Cooperative Game of the Week.
