    Drama has rarely unfolded during Chatfield’s run to within one victory of a second straight unbeaten season in 5A Jeffco League boys basketball, and it was no different on Valentine’s Day after a 97-57 home rout of Dakota Ridge.

    There were any number of reasons for the Chatfield Chargers to have a letdown Feb. 1 against Lakewood.
