Green Mountain boys’ lacrosse survived a 13-12 thriller against Conifer last Monday Trailblazer Stadium.

The underdog Rams went toe-to-toe with the Lobos, scoring five first quarter goals and getting scoring efforts from seven different players.

Green Mountain senior Bryce Woodworth scored three goals and assisted on two of his teammate’s tallies, and senior Greg Haller scored twice and had two assists.

The win for the Rams will keep them out of the basement of the Foothills league standings.

It was also their highlight win of the season, beating a Conifer team that is one of the highest scoring teams in the league.

Wheat Ridge girls’ lacrosse used a hot start to bury Green Mountain 19-9 Thursday at Trailblazer Stadium.

The Farmers scored 11 first half goals, getting 10 goals from two players and multiple scoring efforts from three additional players.

Wheat Ridge senior Gianna Ossello and Amanda Malecki each scored five goals. Ossello also earned five assists.

Green Mountain had its own breakout performer in Payton Gabriel who had six goals.

The Rams (5-9, 1-5 in league) will wrap up their regular season against Ralston Valley Thursday at 5:3 p.m.

Wheat Ridge (7-6, 3-3 in league) will play at Mullen Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

Ralston Valley girls’ lacrosse remained red hot during a 14-8 victory Friday at Grandview High School.

The Mustangs have now won eight of their last nine games behind their explosive offense that again had a big day on Friday.

Senior Carly Licthy scored five goals and sophomore Olivia Sandoval scored three times and assisted on another.

But despite their very successful season Ralston Valley might have to settle for second place because they still sit behind undefeated Chatfield in the Jeffco standings.

The Mustangs (9-3, 4-1) will play Green Mountain Thursday at 5:30 at Trailblazer Stadium.
