No. 8 Walden Grove beat No. 28 Pueblo 28-20 Friday night to take control of the 4A Gila Region. At 6-2 overall and 3-0 in region play, the Red Wolves are now one game away from clinching a region title and the playoff berth that comes with it. The Warriors dropped to 3-5 overall and 2-1 in region play and have to hope the Red Wolves come up short twice down the home stretch to have a shot at the playoffs…..
