  • Eagles win, but Lobos slowly improve

    LAKEWOOD — In the final game of the regular season, both Dakota Ridge and Conifer finished in way in which they can both be proud.

    The Eagles got the girls lacrosse win, 15-6, on May 8 at Trailblazer Stadium to finish above .500 for the season, while an improved Lobos team hung tough for a half before giving way.

    The game was fairly even in the first half as the Lobos stayed within striking distance, but a Marie McDonnell goal with 7.4 seconds left in the half gave the Eagles (8-7 overall, 4-5 5A JeffCo) a three-goal lead heading into intermission.

  • Rebels hold on, just barely
