NIWOT -- The Niwot Cougars surged past Peak to Peak after leading the Pumas the entire game.
The Cougars lead the game early after a great run by Niwot's Jason Rodriguez that was finished just past the Puma keeper's left hand.
They would hold that lead and even extend it before the first half came to an end off a goal from Abelardo Marrufo. After the first half, Niwot lead Peak to Peak 2-0 consistently stacking up shots.
In the second, both team's would earn their fair share of chances on net; however, it was Niwot who managed to get clean shots off in the box. Puma's keeper, Nate Fangman managed to make two great saves on clear shots from Niwots attackers midway through the half.
The Puma's would eventually counter attack and Adam Spiers would pull the team within one.
However, Fangman couldn't hold them for long. The Cougar's chances continued to pile on late in the game. Both Brian Oates and Andres Montelegre would score off of great passes in the slot to pull ahead late by three.
Niwot defeats Peak to Peak 4-1 and will play Green Mountain Saturday.
