In week two of the high school boys' lacrosse season, Cherry Creek was defeated by rival Regis Jesuit 14-11. That would the Bruins' only loss of the entire year. On Friday night, Creek avenged its loss, pounding the Raiders 17-8 to win its sixth lacrosse championship in school history.
Cherry Creek was the first to get on the board, and led the entire game. They would take a commanding 5-1 lead after the first quarter and would only turn up the heat as the temperatures at Sports Authority Field continued to cool down.
The Bruins led by as many as seven goals in the first half until Regis could get its bearings.
Ultimately, the senior-heavy team would be too much for the younger Raiders. Creek earned its sixth state title, the most out of any program in Colorado history.
