After six years of gracing the trophy case at Hotchkiss High School, the North Fork Bowl trophy will return to Paonia High School after the Eagles defeated their rivals in a 21-0 Class 1A conference win Friday night in Hotchkiss. The Eagles are now in first place in the WSC. Paonia still has one major obstacle on its schedule and that will be addressed this Friday night when the Eagles host last year’s state champion Cedaredge High School at 7 p.m.First-year Paonia head coach Brent McRae knew that after six years of big losses to rival Hotchkiss, this year's team had a chance.
But did he and his coaching staff foresee a shutout?
