Lewis-Palmer started 1-2 before winning its last four games, outscoring its opponents by a combined 24 goals.

At Discovery Canyon: The Hawks saw an opening and burst right through to a win.

Cheyenne Mountain found opportunities at the rim for most of the night, while the Thunder struggled to find a rhythm from the field. After only leading by four following the first quarter, the Hawks stepped up and held a double-digit lead for most of the game's remainder. 

The Hawks have now won three consecutive games after falling in their league opener to Fountain-Fort Carson.
