Game of the Week: Littleton Cup at INVESCO


Post Game of the Week Recap

Game of the Week:  Evergreen High School vs. Conifer High School

Evergreen High School

The Denver Outlaws traveled to Conifer High School to watch the Lobos and the Evergreen High School Cougars battle out their mountain rivalry for last week’s “Game of the Week”.  What started as an over casted day turned quickly in to wet, snowy conditions.  The players, however, did not back down and made it a physical confrontation. When asked if the weather held any impact on the game Coach Jon Cohen said, “We play in weather a good majority of the season; it does affect missed passes, and missed ground balls. But being mountain schools we are use to weather and we play through all types of conditions.”  This was a highly anticipated game for both schools; as rivals each game is highly emotional all sports floors from grass to the pine each sport proves to be a battle.  Their ability to handle their emotions is a high point of the team according to Coach Jon Cohen.  He told the Outlaws he was proud of his team and their ability to control emotions and handle the intensity of game with composure.  The Evergreen Cougars came out on top of this game 9 – 2 battling the freezing elements on the Lobos’ home field. Congrats to both teams and good luck through the rest of your season.

Coach Jon Cohen picked #26 Reilly Fletcher for this week’s “Player of the Week”.  Fletcher had four goals against Evergreen, almost half of the overall points scored in this game.  The Denver Outlaws look forward to Fletcher participating in the “Young Gun Shootout” on June 11th. Come support Fletcher while he represents Evergreen High School as the “Player of the Week” during a Denver Outlaws’ half time skills competition.

Conifer High School

Conifer High School stepped on the field determined and looking to have a good game against Evergreen High School.  They worked hard and even though the Lobo’s lost the game Coach Tyler is still optimistic not only about this season but the seasons to come.  Coach Tyler was asked what did you and your team takes from this game to help the rest of your season Tyler said We definitely didn't play our best; I think my kids were a tad bit nervous and we lost the ball three times on man up.  We just couldn't get our offense going because of loss of possession, poor clearing and the inability to win face-offs.  In addition, the officials were awful.  One player landed in the crease and they allowed the goal, another goal was scored off a ground ball after the flag was thrown on us that should have been a dead ball.  Anyways, we keep closing the gap on these guys; we'll get a win soon.”  The Lodo’s and the Cougars were playing a fast paced big hit game trying to get every advantage they could.  I went on to ask the coach what your team goal is moving on from this point Tyler said “Continue to work on the fundamentals and encourage the kids to play lacrosse year round.  One of the things that is hurting us is ball skills.  Hopefully”!  Coach Tyler and the Lobo’s look to finish the season off strong and have a strong team with the last few weeks of the season coming quickly, and to be able to continue a strong program not only with the rest of this season but for the years coming.  Coach Tyler picks #8 Steve Manning as his player of the game.  Manning has been a stand out attack man for the Lobo’s not only in this game but throughout the season.   Congrats to Steve! The Outlaws look forward to having him here to test his skill under the lights of Invesco!

Overland High School vs. Gateway

The Overland High School Blazers and Coach Danny Barcoas hit the field in stride playing there game.  The first half was all Overland.  This game tested the Blazers and all aspects not only with the game play on the field but the calls that were made it an uneven battlefield for Overland.  Coach Danny was asked what you and your team takes from this game to help your season he replied “The Gateway game really tested our ability to deal with the game when things don't go the way we had planned. How to keep ourselves in check and not let the game and our emotions get away from us. We had a solid 1st half, but just couldn't quite finish. We've been stressing that as a team we need to control what we can and don't let those things that we can't control get the best of us”.  The Blazers are a very young team and Coach Danny hopes to build this program and continue working with the players to better their lacrosse skills.  Danny was asked after this game what are your team goals moving forward?  Coach Danny said “We have long term goals right now. As a very young and inexperienced team I am looking for off season commitment through camps, summer and fall ball, off season conditioning and team throw arounds. If we can commit to the off season necessities then we'll see more success during the season”.    After the game Coach Danny picked #17 Jordan Scherner to represent Overland High School Blazers at the Denver Outlaws “Young Gun Shootout”.  Jordan has been a standout player all year and in this game against Gateway he scored 4 goals.  Good luck to Overland not only this season but for the seasons to come and we look forward to seeing your team grow!

Denver Outlaws “Game of the Week”

Arapahoe Warriors vs. Cherokee Trail Cougars

 

The Denver Outlaws’ “Game of the Week” takes us to Littleton Public School Stadium at 6pm on April 20, 2011.  Both of these teams are top 25 teams in the state and hope to keep their playoff ambitions alive.  The Arapahoe High School Warriors are coming off a big non-conference win against the Littleton High School Lions.    Cherokee Trail High School Cougars hold an outstanding record at 8-3 and are No. 15 in the state.  The Cougars are looking to end the Warriors’ winning streak.  The Warriors though have had a tough schedule but maintain a strong 5-5 record and are No. 7 in the state.  They will look to their captains on the field to lead the charge.  Brett Menter, #18, was last season’s all American Mid Fielder as a junior, #12 Spencer Thompson one of four year letterman on the team as a long stick midfielder, and #4 Greg Bechler is a midfielder with a presence on the field and in the locker room.   The Warriors will also need help from junior Jack Bobzien, one of the Warriors’ all around best players.  Bobzien was moved from midfielder to an attack and has proven to be a valuable assist on the field. 

Even though the season has had its ups and downs Coach Guy Cerasoli keeps the team philosophy alive, “Keep it fun”. He told the Outlaws, “I didn’t want to have the kids get stuck in the same routine day in and day out, I make sure I keep it fresh while maintaining focus on and off the field”.  This game will be yet another test of their team motto, “PRIDE!  Support each other throughout the program from the Level 3 team up through JV to varsity.” The Warriors will have to support one another and play hard in order to get a big win over the Cherokee Trail Cougars.  The Denver Outlaws wish the Warriors good luck!

Columbine High School Rebels

The Columbine High School Rebels are currently No. 3 in the league and are looking for a big win this week to break their 6-6 record.  They play Chatfield High School this week who has a 4-6 record.  The rebels have had a trying season and will look to their top players, Jake Gonzales, Dalton Sierra, and Evan Hartman for guidance as they fight for a “W” this week.  As a sophomore, Gonzales, tops the Rebels’ offensive leader boards with 26 goals and 17 assists. Chatfield goal tenders will have their hands full guarding against this offensive power player.  Good luck to the Rebels as they compete for a big win this week!

Littleton High School Lions

The Littleton High School Lions have had an impressive season and currently hold an 8-3 record.  With a 4-1 Conference record they currently stand No.2 in league standings.  The Lions are the perfect representation of the term “ground balls win games”, with their top offensive players, Will Dommermuth, Tim Fennelly, and Jack Director meeting a total of 74 ground balls.  That impressive number plus the 8-3 record should prove to be daunting numbers for the Golden High School Demons as they take on the Lions this week.  The Demons’ top three offensive players hold a total of 17 ground balls, they will have to work hard to improve in order to compete against Littleton.  Good work Lions and keep that momentum rolling!

Heritage High School Eagles

The Heritage High School Eagles have had a trying season and are currently 2-7.  The Eagles play two games this week, one Monday against Cherokee Trail High School and another Friday during the Littleton Cup against Littleton High School.  Both games will be a challenge for the Eagles.  Let’s pull a couple of upsets this week Eagles!   

Chatfield High School Chargers

The Chatfield Chargers have a game cut out for them this week against the Columbine High School Rebels.  Erikson has a current season total of 16 goals with 11 assists.  As No.4 in the league the Chargers are equal to Columbine in winning percentages for Conference games; however, Columbine does have a stronger record overall—the Chargers will have to play hard to pull a victory for this imperative game.  Senior Mitch Erikson will have to leave 100% on the field in order to make a stand against the Rebels’ Jake Gonzales.  Erikson is followed closely behind on the leaderboards by senior Hayden Kammerzell, who has 15 goals and 8 assists.  These two offensive players’ records show obvious team work and which will be needed to get a victory over the rebels.  Good luck this week Chargers!
