In the second match played it was the Denver Barbarians who came out on top over their cross town rivals the Denver Harlequins, 66-6. This game got off to a close start with the Harlequins trailing 6-7 15 minutes into the game, but the Barbarians came back to score 59 unanswered points, and maintained their firm grasp on first place in the division.

The third division saw two upsets this weekend, with the Littleton Eagles beating the Colorado Springs Grizzlies, 38-36. This was the first loss that the Grizzlies had suffered all year.

The second upset that came this weekend came from the Northern Colorado Flamingos defeating the Queen City Rams, 35-25. With this win the Flamingos leapfrogged the Rams and currently enjoy 3rd spot on the ladder.
