DENVER — No. 4 Colorado Academy boys lacrosse appears to be the real deal.
The Mustangs played smothering defense against Heritage on Tuesday afternoon, allowing just two goals on their way to a big win. And, oh yeah, they scored 13 goals of their own to move to 4-0 on the young season.
After getting down 1-0 in the first minute of the game, CA played aggressively the rest of the way in the 13-2 victory. The Mustangs were up 7-2 at halftime, 9-2 after the third quarter and never looked back.
Heritage (0-2) has now lost both games this season to Colorado Academy, but will look to pick up their first win on Wednesday against Denver East.
Meanwhile, the Mustangs next match is a huge showdown on Friday night against No. 3 Cherry Creek.
