8:42 am
it's scary though. you don't know if they're going to tackle you or not. it's a good feeling. >> one, two, three, tigers. >> looking for 4a. tigers trail by one. morgan web ebber combine for the double play. check out that stretch. that would keep the eagles at bay. erie could not day. her teammates would rally around her. smacks this one over the fence. would hold on to win this 3-0. taking home their third straight state championship in the process. defending 3a champs for another shot. down 3-0 in the second. anita acres gets one to drop in the infield.
8:43 am
richardson. ashley harmio was dialed in. drives this one to center field. that brings in whitney nelson for the lead. would also strike again in the final inning. sending a ball to far right field and that would bring in yet another run. rocky ford takes home their first ever girls state championship 5-1. there are 36 football teams in the 5a football classification with just two weeks remaining in the regular season, only eagle crest is teams with just one loss. hoping to keep it this that way. they got right to work. early in the first. scoreless. would drop back. let this one go. right in the arms of max in the end zone. the 54-yard completion gives the panthers a 7-0 lead. the you fillty guy. he's back to punt. no, he's not. it's a fake. he's going to take it 44 yards to the end zone.

8:45 am
8:46 am
some republicans are on the fence with this controversial election. so in this week's balance of power we spoke to two republicans who tell us how they feel donald trump will impact the party. >> to trump or not to trump. we have two republicans on either side of that issue. joining us now is tom tancato. was a cruz guy. we also have -- leader of the never trump movement.
8:47 am
given the elevator pitch. how did you come from being a cruz guy and end up on trump. >> easy. her name is hillary clinton. what more do you want to know? what more does anybody want to know? >> that's a short elevator speech. i will give you that. >> it should cover everything. you have a situation now. i wasn't a trump supporter. i was a cruz guy. fact is now we have two candidates. two candidates. there is no, from my point of view, there's no alternative. >> kendall, your response that or just your elevator pitch too. >> i agree. hillary clinton is not someone we want to see in the presidency. that'sy had started the movement that i did in order to sponsor the conscious clause at the rules committee at the convention in order to not have donald trump be our nominee. we knew he was replete with all of his problems. we could foresee it was going to actually be a hindrance to the party at the current state
8:48 am
course that has come to fruition. they had a chance at the time of the convention that they had counted the delegate votes when we called for the roll call vote and he would actually not have been our nominee. they made a choice at that time. at the convention i was told they would win without the conservative never trumpers. so far he hasn't earned my vote. he needs to earn the vote of the never trumpers. >> he won the convention without you folks. remains to be seen if he can win the if president trump happens he'll have four to eight years to define his legacy and how it impacts the party. let's assume he loses. what is donald trump's lasting impact on the republican party. >> it's going to be disaster as far as i can tell. really and truly, you know, kendall, i completely understand and appreciate her -- why she is where she is on this issue. but you know how many people i have had to vote for at the top of that ticket.
8:49 am
believe me, i did not feel good about that. not one iota. yet, of course, the alternative for me, again, was not acceptable. we've gone through this time after time and yes, they tried at the convention to stop it. it failed. so therefore we've got donald trump. that's the reality. democrats and republicans many of them wish we had two different candidates, for both sides. they are not the candidates i've seen running here. i think it's a disaster if for the party. what has happened even with the never trumpers, that's a disaster for the party. if it happens, it could be the best thing that comes out of this election. if he loses, from my point of view, the best thing that could happen is that, that the party as we know it collapses and some new thing comes and rejuvenates the old one.
8:50 am
party on november 9th? >> there's going to be a lot of rebuilding. there has to be someone who a lot of strong leadership because the personalities are so divided. i've never seen such vitriol in a campaign. i've always fallen in line every single presidential candidate. by the way, a lot of people, a lot of republicans, especially with mitt romney weren't supporting mitt romney. i would get frustrated and try to win their vote through just discussing issues and doing the things that you normally do politically to turn out votes. but there was not the name calling and the coercion. i'm in touch with probably 10,000 never trumpers, but it's turned more into the conscience movement. we weren't doing it with one candidate in mind. we were doing it out of conscience. the right to conscience is something that we hold as such a dear level. it's why our nation was
8:51 am
against dan. we truly believe in conscience. >> what happens to the republican party? who cares. do you really care? is that a matter of conscience for you? it's not for me, as i said. but i have a great deal of concern if i have one commitment, philosophical, moral, all the rest of it, it is to this country. it is to the america i grew up in. it's to the america i love. and i will parties don't matter to me in that regard. and i don't care that -- you know, that he's a republican. i care that he's running against hillary clinton. her presidency -- you know we could survive a lot of things in this country. we have survived a lot of things. we could survive a hillary clinton presidency, but we could not -- i don't think -- not the america i love cannot survive a hillary clinton presidency and a hillary clinton appointed supreme
8:52 am
this a terribly incredible election and one that your conscience should lead you to the point of saying what's more important to me. is it my personal feeling about this guy who is rude and crude and all the rest of that stuff or do i want truly to put in here a corrupt, pathological liar, which is what she is. >> this is a conversation that we don't always get to have around here, so we appreciate both of you coming in. >> nd thats for having us. >> thank you for your time. this has been balance of power. thanks if they'll hug it out. >> ended on a high note. much more on we are switching gears. it's been two weeks, we have been missing our broncos. >> they're coming back tomorrow night though. just over 24 hours to go. >> kubiak is back, so is brock. boo. our game day live co-hosts will take a look at what tomorrow's
8:53 am
8:54 am
texans and our denver broncos. both 4. 2. the matchup will be the first time brock osweiler has been at mile high since last year. >> how important is this game? we're coming off of two losses. an extended period of time off. i think they need to win this
8:55 am
because of all the brock talk, everyone hasn't talked about the fact this team has lost back to back games. granted that happened last year twice, they were able to bounce back. should they lose on monday night, all bets are off. >> practically speaking it's probably not a must win game, but after you lose two in a row. if they lose to brock -- i'm seeing no way they're losing to brock and the texans, a team. they do then it really shows that there are some serious issues with this team. i do think it'll be a confidence thing. right now this isn't a great team. i think those two losses showed everybody that this isn't -- okay, the super bowl team is gone now. this is 2016. still got a chance to be a good team. still got a chance to be a great team. it's not right now. they have to fix some things in this game. >> it's crazy this is the second straight sunday we've
8:56 am
on game day live we'll also be talking about a special ceremony we'll have on monday night. three new ring of famers. >> simon fletcher. one guy saying over the years, how come simon fleche r isn't in the ring of fame. jason -- automatic. tell me who the third is. >> john lynch -- >> here the shortest. >> he's the reason they're having it game here today. john lynch, hard hitting safety four years. those are three real good inductees. you'll have a lot of the ring of famers come back for the ceremony. it's a nice deal for the broncos. >> always a special night. monday night football. we'll talk about that coming up with dave and sam and mike on game day live. back to you. >> good stuff. thanks. appreciate it. >> great temperatures.
8:57 am
>> she's claiming it. the forecast is looking really nice for tomorrow. let's get you through your sunday because the highs for today, you'll notice they'll be cooler. 75. lots of sunshine. winds will be light. this evening it'll be breezy at times. winds from 10 to 20 miles per hour. tomorrow for the broncos versus texans game, kickoff at 6:30. temperatures will be in the 60s. i'm headed out there. i'm going to cheer on our broncos and i'm going to take a sweatshirt. a little cool. will be just a little cooler for next week on tuesday with a small chance for some showers. then past that, the temperatures will continue in the 70s. halloween right now is looking mild, highs in the 70s and dry. >> like that. >> great forecast. thank you so much. have a wonderful week.
