  • Chargers blank Rebels

    LAKEWOOD — For a little more than 40 minutes, the Chatfield Chargers boys soccer team threw the bathtub, cabinets, a set of dishes and a chair at the Columbine Rebels.

    Then the Chargers threw the proverbial kitchen sink and the floodgates opened.

    The Chargers hammered away at Lakewood Memorial Field before finally breaking through in the 44th minute to spark 3-0 Class 5A Jefferson County League rivalry victory on Sept. 18.

  • Rebels finally top Bears

    In her ideal scenario, Danielle Steele ends the game with a towering home run.

    She’ll have to settle for hustle and a bit of luck.

    While it wasn’t the prettiest way to score a game-winning run, Columbine was just happy to finally be on the positive side of the scoreboard against Bear Creek.

  • Chargers make quick work of...

    There’s going to be times when the youthful Chatfield volleyball team shows its inexperience.

    There’s also going to be instances when the Chargers flash glimpses of talent, that once refined, could return the Chargers back to the top of the Class 5A Jefferson County League Standings.

  • Chatfield takes it to Columbine

    Parker Lewis got caught watching the scoreboards.

    It was hard to blame him.

    With Lewis and his Chatfield teammates making short work of their rivalry match against Columbine, it seemed at like a race for who was going to be done first.

    While that honor might have fallen to Chatfield No. 2 singles player Jensen Teague, the Chargers were happy with the 6-1 victory over the Rebels on Sept. 18 at the Ken-Caryl Ranch House.

  • Eagles overcome weather, Rams

    It’s a good thing that softball players don’t melt in the rain.

    In a drizzle which turned into a downpour Sept. 11, the Dakota Ridge Eagles defeated the Green Mountain Rams 7-1 in a game which never saw the end of the gray and dreary weather. The temperature hovered in the 50s and the rain just got heavier and heavier.

  • Rebels pass first test

    Megan Koop and her Columbine teammates weren’t going to let a rare nonleague crowd go home disappointed Sept. 10. Even if it meant playing after knocking yourself loopy.

    Koop banged her head hard enough on the floor against Cheyenne Mountain that the details got a little clouded. But the senior came back, just like the Rebels, as they overcame Class 4A powerhouse Cheyenne Mountain 25-17, 16-25, 23-25, 25-18, 15-12 in thrilling fashion.

  • Nail-biter

    Chatfield didn’t accomplish everything it set out to do Sept. 12 against top-ranked Bear Creek.

    But, what the No. 10 Chargers did in the 26-20 Class 5A Big 8 League loss was more than enough to serve notice around the state that Chatfield football is now a program to be taken seriously.

  • Motivated Cougars blitz Rebels...

    EVERGREEN — While soccer will always be a game between two teams, Evergreen’s 4-1 cross-classification victory over Columbine on Sept. 12 does have a third side.

    Blame it all on the Alameda Pirates.

    See, the Pirates pulled off a surprising 1-0 victory over Evergreen on Sept. 10 and that got the Cougars’ attention and anger. Columbine coach Brian Todd noticed the score and couldn’t help but start thinking the game was there for the taking.

  • Columbine cruises past Spartans

    LAKEWOOD — Change is as awkward as it is rewarding.

    Thankfully for the Columbine Rebels, no matter how many wrinkles they try to add to their offense, they always have their running game. And that was all the difference in the Rebels’ 41-20 Class 5A nonleague victory over Thomas Jefferson on Sept. 4 at Jefferson County Stadium.

  • Defense shines

    After spending the past two hours hitting each other in the mouth, Front Range Christian and Custer County high schools took time after the game to enjoy to a few laughs.
