    LITTLETON — Throw out the records in rivalry games? The Columbine and Chatfield hockey teams seemed more bent on disposing of last season’s win-loss records — a combined 5-31-2 — when they squared off for the only time in 2017-18.

    EVERGREEN — As he has been all season, Clear Creek basketball’s Noah Sarria was again the x-factor in the Golddiggers’ last-second victory over the Front Range Christian Falcons on Dec. 12 night at Clear Creek High School.

    Sarria’s layup with 12.9 seconds left gave the Goldiggers a 70-68 lead, which wound up being the final score, as the Falcons’ Ethan Fisher’s game-winning 3-point attempt barely missed the mark.
