March 15, 2014 Updated: March 15, 2014 at 11:20 pm


Faith Chr. 44, CSCS 43

At Clune Arena: A night after being knocked out in the semifinals, Colorado Springs Christian School (22-5) lost in the third-place game by a point on Saturday at the Air Force Academy.

Faith Christian (18-9) had just four players score, but three of those four were in double digits, led by Gabriel Hegarty's 15 points.

Lions forward Sam Howard also scored 15 points.

The teams were tied going into the final period.



Meeker 62, Peyton 56

At CSU-Pueblo: Peyton held a slim two-point lead heading into the final period, but Meeker scored 21 points to overtake the Panthers and secure third place in the Class 2A girls' basketball tournament.

The Panthers, who hit five from beyond the arc in the semifinals a day earlier, hit just 4 of 33 3-pointers against Meeker.

Senior Shelby Patterson led the Panthers with 17 points in her final high school game with Peyton. No other Panthers reached double digits.

Peyton jumped out to a 19-7 lead after the first, but gave up 24 points in the second quarter to see their lead vanish, as they went into the locker room trailing by three.



Discovery Canyon 6, Mesa Ridge 0

Discovery Canyon 5, Fountain-Fort Carson 1

At Mesa Ridge: Freshman Jordan Alcon scored twice for Discovery Canyon (2-1), which scored all six goals against Mesa Ridge (0-2) in the first half. Then behind a pair of goals from Jamie Keith, the Thunder downed Fountain-Fort Carson (0-2) in the Mesa Ridge tournament.

Keith added three assists for the Thunder in the win over the Grizzlies. Kendall Schauer, Sherry Langseth, Madeline Angel and Natasha Bussell also scored in that game. Alexandra Palmer made five saves in a half, while Bit Hart made one save for the Thunder to preserve the save.

Bussell, Layna Deneen and Christina Woshner added goals against the Trojans.


Pueblo Centennial 2, Canon City 1

At Pueblo Centennial: Tia Parker's lone goal wasn't enough, as Canon City (1-3, 0-2 4A South Central League) fell to Pueblo Centennial (3-0, 2-0).

Karra Sallie made seven saves for the Tigers.


Manitou Springs 6, Mitchell 0

At Mitchell: Five players scored goals, including two from Emma Lichina, for 3A No. 3 Manitou Springs (2-1) against Mitchell (0-3).

Kaity Vogel had one goal and two assists for the Mustangs.


Pine Creek 2, Cherry Creek 0

At Arapahoe: Ryanne Parker and Madeline Alhamra scored second-half goals to help Pine Creek (3-0) claim the Warrior Invitational championship.

"I like that we got that second goal," Pine Creek coach John Frederick said. "It says we're here, we're going to contend. I think this is the first year we have girls that really believe it."

One of the more challenging early-season tournaments in the state saw the Eagles roll through Denver East and Monarch by a pair of 5-0 scores.


Lewis-Palmer 2, Broomfield 2 (2OT)

At Broomfield: Sarah Lyons scored a goal in each half and Haley Arsenault made 10 saves in 85 minutes of work in the net, as L-P (2-0-2) got a well-earned draw with perennial powerhouse Broomfield (1-1-1).



Harrison Panther Invitational

At Memorial Stadium: Heide Baron won the 100 meters and 400 meters, and Madelyn Baron won the 200, and both helped Pine Creek win the 800-meter relay, as the Eagles won the girls' invitational.

Pine Creek finished with 146 points, while Mountain View was second with 112. Discovery Canyon went third with 55.

Madelyn Baron also aided in the 800 sprint medley relay.

Mountain View (95 points) edged Liberty (85.5) for first in the boys' competition. Doherty was third with 73.

Dustin Bohnert of Manitou Springs won the 100 meters in 11.18 seconds and the 200 in 22.96.

Liberty's Matt Simmons won the shot put (47 feet, 1 inch) and the discus (160-11).



Las Cruces 15, Doherty 5 (5 innings)

At Las Cruces, N.M.: Las Cruces (8-4) scored eight runs in the first and seven in the third and Doherty (2-1) never recovered in the championship game of the tournament in Las Cruces.

After falling behind 8-1 after one inning, the Spartans scored three in the second to cut the deficit in half. But that only lasted until the third inning.

Cory Ewald went 2 for 2 with a double and three runs batted in for the Spartans, who suffered their first loss of the season after winning the first two games of the tournament.


Canon City 4, Woodland Park 3 (9 innings)

At Woodland Park: A pitcher's duel that went scoreless through five and a half innings, saw seven runs scored over the last three and a half, as Canon City (2-0) scored two unearned in the top of the ninth before stranding Woodland Park (1-3) runners in scoring position for the win.

Panthers starter Dakota Herman scattered five hits over six scoreless innings in a no-decision. He struck out seven.

"Those seven strikeouts a lot of times came with key runners in scoring position," Panthers coach Cliff Richardson said. "He did an excellent job for us."

The Panthers scored two in the sixth to take a 2-0 lead, but gave it right back in the top of the seventh. The Tigers added two more in the ninth. Woodland Park scored one run and put runners in scoring position with one out, but couldn't capitalize.


Palmer 5, Widefield 4

At Spurgeon Field: Alexis Enriquez blew a three-run lead but notched the win when his lineup bailed him out with a run in the bottom of the seventh, as Pikes Peak region 5A No. 3 Palmer (2-0) topped Widefield (2-1).

Terrors starter Luke Demolli was in line for the win after hurling five innings of one-hit, scoreless baseball. But the Trojans jumped on Enriquez for a run in the sixth and three in the seventh, as Widefield rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the top of the seventh.

Troy Montague drove in two runs for the Terrors.

Isaiah Volcic went 3 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI for the Trojans.


CSCS 26, Ellicott 6

At CSCS: Seth Whiteside hit two home runs, drove in seven runs and scored three as Colorado Springs Christian School (1-1) notched its first win of the season.

The Lions scored 15 runs in the fourth inning to blow the game open.

Two other players - Riley Nelson and Peter Duszynski - drove in four runs apiece, while Jarrett McDonald went 4 for 4 with five runs scored.


ECA 22, Cripple Creek-Victor 1 (5 innings)

At CC-V: Evangelical Christian Academy (1-0) used an 11-run second inning to blow past Cripple Creek-Victory (0-2) in a game that was called after five innings.

David Shipper was credited with the win and drove in three runs and scored three for the Eagles. Freshman Samuel Perkett was a perfect 5 for 5 at the plate, doubled, homered, drove in four and scored four runs; a pretty nice debut for a freshman. Classmate Cade Hammarquist drove in six runs on 3-for-5 hitting. Jacob Kohl went 4 for 4 with two doubles, two triples, an RBI and four runs scored.



Rampart 17, Smoky Hill 6

At Rampart: Normally Lauren Mochowski is on defense. On Saturday, she filled in on offense and made quite the impression.

The senior scored three goals and added an assist all in the second half to help Rampart (4-1) breeze past Smoky Hill (1-2).

Mochowski wasn't the only player with multiple goals for the Rams. Allie Popelar scored a team-high five goals and Kelli Warmouth added four, plus two assists.


Palmer Ridge 8, Chaparral 7

At Chaparral: Ashley Walker notched a hat trick and Rachael Braaten and Mary Koch each scored twice as Palmer Ridge (4-0) remained unbeaten with the win over Chaparral (1-1).


Douglas County 2, Air Academy 0

Fruita Monument 3, Air Academy 2

At Air Academy: Douglas County (2-1) shut out Air Academy (1-3) in the semifinals of the Kadet Kickoff Classic, and then Fruita (2-1-1) scored twice in the second half in the third-place match.

Brooke Braden and Rachael Martino scored for the Kadets in the loss to Fruita.



Coronado grad named All-American
