Valor Christian defeats Ralston Valley to capture 5A hockey championship

The Eagles won 7-3 over the Mustangs in the Class 5A hockey state title game on Tuesday night.

DENVER — A year after coming up just short, the Valor Christian hockey team was determined to make it back to the Class 5A championship game and rewrite a different ending.

Mission accomplished.

The Eagles captured their third state title in four years Tuesday night by defeating Ralston Valley 7-3 at DU's Magness Arena.

Valor Christian's championship campaign began with its only loss of the season, to the same Ralston Valley team -- a 4-3 overtime loss in the season opener.

The Eagles then rattled off a 20-game win streak in route to the championship. The Mustangs went 14-5-2 overall as runner-up.
