DENVER - The usually high-powered offense of D’Evelyn took night off and their defense took charge in a 47-36 victory Saturday at Mullen High School.

The Jaguars allowed only six first quarter points and three second quarter points and took a 24-9 lead into halftime.
Sophomore Lexi Reed scored 10 points and added 10 rebounds for D’Evelyn, and senior Malia Shappell scored a game-high 19 points.
Mullen stepped up their defense in the second half and attempted to come back, but the Jaguars were too good defensively and on the glass all game.

D’Evelyn (5-3, 0-0 in 4A Jeffco) will host Golden, Friday at 5:30 p.m.

Rams get two wins in 24 hours

Green Mountain opened their second half schedule with a pair of wins the latest a 62-22 dismantling at Widefield High School.
The Rams opened the game with a 17-2 run and Widefield could not get in the way of Green Mountain’s offensive onslaught.
Freshman Delany Bernard scored a game-high 20 points, and senior Kelli Van Tassel added 16 points and nine rebounds.
The win comes just 24 hours after the Rams beat Denver South 81-35.

The Rams (6-2, 0-0 in 4A Jeffco) look poised to start league play and perhaps make a run at a league title. They play at Golden, Friday at 5:30 p.m.

Tigers stay perfect after big RV win

Lakewood stayed perfect on the season and got a huge league win when they beat Ralston Valley 64-53 Saturday at Ralston Valley High School.

Down eight points at the half, the Tigers got it together in the second half and closed the game on an incredible 27-12 fourth quarter run.

Lakewood got at least 17 points from three different players including senior Jessica Brooks 21 points. Sophomore Mackenzie Forrest added 18 points in the win.

Ralston Valley was led by junior Morgan Nishida’s 14 points and senior Chantal Jacobs added nine points.
The Mustangs (6-3, 2-1 in 5A Jeffco) will get another shot at Lakewood later in the season — perhaps with a league title on the line.

Ralston Valley will play at Bear Creek Friday at 7 p.m.

Lakewood (9-0, 3-0) is on a roll and looks like a team on a mission. It will host Pomona Friday at 7 p.m.
