- After an opening season loss Green Mountain girls’ soccer has cruised to four straight victories.

Their latest is a 2-0 victory over 5A Jeffco’s Lakewood Wednesday at Lakewood High School.

Sophomore Ariel Modisette and junior Daisy McCall both scored as the Rams claimed the unofficial battle for Lakewood.

And Green Mountain senior goaltender Lindsey Hendon recorded her second straight shutout victory.

Twenty-four hours before the Rams shutout Brighton in a 5-0 win Tuesday at North Area Athletic Complex.

In that contest Modisette scored twice and assisted on another goal, and junior Jenn Brunsdon scored and added an assist.

The reigning 4A Jeffco champions are rolling as they prepare for league play and have outscored their opposition this season 12-6.

The Rams only loss this season came in their season opener when they fell 4-1 to 5A heavyweight Columbine. But if the two teams played a rematch today the outcome might be different.

Green Mountain has developed one of the best one-two offensive punches in the state with the combination of Modisette and Brunsdon.

Modisette might be the best scoring-sophomore in Colorado and Brunsdon has five goals in five games this season.

But trying to dethrone Green Mountain is Wheat Ridge, who faced the Rams in both team’s 4A Jeffco league opener Wednesday at Lakewood Memorial Field.

The Rams took home a league title last season even though they tied the Farmers during their regular season meeting.

However, Wheat Ridge got their revenge when they eliminated Green Mountain from last year’s state tournament in the second round.

Both teams are expected to compete for this season’s 4A Jeffco league title.
