Rebels book trip to state soccer semis

LAKEWOOD — The left foot of Columbine senior Tatum Barton got the Rebels one step closer to the Class 5A girls soccer state championship game.

Barton’s 28th goal this season was all the 5A Jeffco League champs needed offensively May 18 in the state quarterfinal showdown with No. 7 seed Rocky Mountain. The senior forward ripped a left-footed shot from atop the Lobos’ goalie box in the 49th minute that hit the inside of the right post and into the back of the net.
