Highlights from Wednesday's high school sports scene around the Pikes Peak region.


Lewis-Palmer 37, Elizabeth 34

At Elizabeth: Lewis-Palmer's smallest wrestler got things started in a big way against Elizabeth.

In the 106-pound class, Alec Oberndorfer continued his hot start to the season and pinned Jake Hollady in 22 seconds.

Later, Joey Neumann squeaked out a 7-4 decision, and Trevor Wilch (120) and Joseph Scott (220) grabbed pins in 3:09 and 45 seconds, respectively, to help the Rangers to a tight-knit win.

Lewis-Palmer was also helped out by two wins coming by forfeit.


Pine Creek 47, Doherty 18

At Doherty: Helped out by four wins by forfeit, Pine Creek outdid Doherty in the schools' second meeting in the past five days.

After both teams took part in the 34th annual Harold McCray Invitational on Saturday - where Doherty took second and Pine Creek's B team took sixth - pins by Chase Frye and Chris Cos pushed the Eagles past the Spartans in Wednesday's dual.

Frye pinned Mackenzie Stutts at 2 minutes, 21 seconds in the 132-pound weight class before Cos pinned Josh Wilhelm at 3:38 in the 152s.

In matches actually wrestled, Pine Creek edged Doherty by a score of 23-18.

Doherty's Ian Haves led the scoring for the Spartans and pinned Dustin Jones in 5:05 for the team's only pin of the match.



Loveland 62, Sierra 60, OT

At Prairie View: KeAndre' Lewis' 24-point outburst was tainted after Sierra (1-4) bumbled away a five-point lead late in the fourth quarter in a heartbreaking loss to Loveland at the Prairie View Tournament.

The Stallions have gone 1-2 in games decided by three points or fewer this season.

Anthony Gates and Michael Jordan each added 10 points during Wednesday's loss.



Widefield 44, Colorado Springs Christian School 28

At CSCS: Delia Brekkan, a senior, fueled Widefield (4-4) past CSCS (3-2) with 15 points on 7-for-10 shooting and grabbed six rebounds, along with two steals and two blocks.

Sophomore Logan Prater added 10 points and six rebounds in the win, and the Gladiators snapped their three-game losing streak.

Brekkan matched her season high in points and surpassed her previous best shooting percentage of 43 percent with a 70-percent night.

The Lions, meanwhile, had their three-game winning streak snapped.


Pine Creek 65, Falcon 33

At Pine Creek: Another balanced scoring effort from Pine Creek (5-0) kept its undefeated start intact against Falcon (2-3).

Jayne Lydiatt scored 11 points and Taylor Cross added 10, but it was the Eagles' equal-opportunity scoring that led to the comfortable win.

The Pikes Peak region 5A No. 2 team had five girls with eight or more points in the rout.

The Falcons, meanwhile, gave up 60-plus points for the third time already this season.



Pueblo County 8, Palmer 5

At World Arena Ice Hall: Palmer (2-4) blew a 4-0 lead and lost its third game in its past four tries.

Sam Horning scored three of the Terrors' first four goals, but Pueblo County (5-0) responded with six consecutive goals and held on to stay undefeated.

Isaac Ruybal, meanwhile, led the Hornets with four goals, and Matt Peters and Collin Miller added two goals each in the comeback win.

And to think, it started so well for Palmer. Early in the second period, Horning scored back-to-back goals 40 seconds apart to give the Terrors the 4-0 advantage less with 12 minutes left in the frame.

Palmer goalie Jake Palmer, however, gave up seven goals in the final 28 minutes, and lost for the second time in four starts. He managed 21 saves on 28 shots before Pueblo County threw in an empty netter in the closing seconds.

Palmer faces Lewis-Palmer on Dec. 23 at Sertich.


Bishop Machebeuf 3, Pine Creek 1

At Big Bear South: Pine Creek (3-2), ranked No. 3 in the Pikes Peak region, allowed a season-high 38 shots on net and fell for the second game in a row.

Riley Gregory scored the Eagles' lone goal to tie the game at 1 midway through the second period, but the Buffaloes kept the pressure up on the other end and put two more in the net to ice the game.

Pine Creek goalie Conor Chmelka made 35 saves in the loss.


Cheyenne Mountain 12, Coronado 2

At World Arena Ice Hall: Doug Klopenstine and Ryan Case each scored two goals and added an assist, and Cheyenne Mountain (3-4) clobbered winless Coronado (0-6).

The Indians led 5-0 after one period and 9-1 after two.

Dakota Henn scored and threw in one assist per period in the rout, and Drew Lazar added three more assists after a late-night start ended with four Cheyenne Mountain players grabbing at least three points from the game.

The Cougars, meanwhile, have lost four of their six games by double digits.
