Editor’s Note: This is the first installment of a weekly series that will break down the previous week in high school lacrosse and take a look at the upcoming week. At the bottom of every post, we will reveal our new Top-10 Rankings.

Headlines:

The first week of high school lacrosse is now complete and, for the most part, it went exactly as expected. Here’s a look at some of the top scores and stories from this week.

Cherry Creek Blows Out Chaparral

The second ranked Cherry Creek Bruins may have notched the most impressive win of the week with a 17-4 victory over the Chaparral Wolverines. Cherry Creek’s Henry Savage recorded five goals before halftime as the Bruins rolled over a good Chaparral team. The Bruins will ride this momentum into their next contest against rival Regis Jesuit.

Wheat Ridge Defeats Mullen in a Nailbiter

The Farmers came out with a 6-5 victory over Mullen in what proved to be a better game than expected. With that being said, Mullen’s performance was fairly impressive for a team that still needs to find an identity. Both of these teams are capable of big things this season.

Fairview Refuses to go Unnoticed after Destroying Eaglecrest

We’ll be the first ones to admit that Fairview was not on our radar entering 2017. However, after a 20-5 victory over Eaglecrest, Fairview has caught our attention. It’s still too early to tell just how good this Fairview team is, but expect to see them enter the rankings soon.

Valor and Dawson Both Impress in First Victories of the Season

The reigning 4A Champions defeated Chatfield 16-10 to start the 2017 season. With the win, Valor proved that its offense is still as lethal as last year’s high-scoring squad. The Dawson School also improved to 1-0 this week with a 17-2 victory over Boulder.

Legend 9-18 Mountain Vista
