MEAD, Colorado — After winning 31 straight games over the past two years, the Mead Mavericks were looking to start another winning streak after losing two games last week.
Unfortunately for the Mavericks, who are now ranked No. 3 in Class 4A in this week's CHSAA poll, they met a hot-shooting squad from Holy Family on Friday night and fell 67-58 for their third loss in a row.
Mead (6-3) started the game with an early lead and tough interior defense. Holy Family (6-5) then started taking more 3-point shots and, more importantly, hit most of them.
The Tigers would end up making 10 3-pointers on the night and were led by Jackson Ward’s 21 points.
It was the third upset of top-10 ranked teams that Holy Family has had the past two weeks. Last week they upended No. 2 Longmont and kept it rolling over No. 8 Erie, and only lost to No. 1 ranked Windsor by a point.
The Mavericks were led in scoring by Elijah Knudsen with 21 points and sophomore Nick Basson with 15 points.
