  • Evergreen denied 4A boys soccer...

    COMMERCE CITY -- Skyler Erickson punched home the game's lone goal in the 63rd minute and fifth-seeded Mullen avenged a season-opening loss with a 1-0 victory over Evergreen on Nov. 9 in the 4A boys soccer state championship game at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.


    Zach Sunderhuse assisted on Erickson's goal for Mullen (13-5-2).
    Second-seeded Evergreen (17-3) had its 10-game winning streak snapped. The Cougars were looking to win the school's second state championship and first since 1989.

  • Surf scoter a rare sight at...

    Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 1 and 2, Loie Evans identified an immature surf scoter on Evergreen Lake. No matter how good a birder you are or how sure you are of your identification, it is always a good idea to have at least one other person see and identify a rare bird.

    MOUNTAIN BOWL HISTORY
    Evergreen and Conifer have been rivals since the latter opened in 1996, but it’s been the past three years, with the emphasis on their annual showdown, that the football game has taken on added meaning. The results, so far: Evergreen 2, Conifer 1. The Cougars have won the past two meetings by a combined eight points, qualifying for the playoffs both times.

    THE FUMBLE THAT WASN’T

  • Postseason pressure was on...

    Evergreen head coach Rob Molholm knew his team needed it. Quarterback Noah Ansley knew it, too. Shoot, everybody in Evergreen pretty much knew it.
    The Cougars had to beat rival Conifer. Not just for bragging rights. Not just for the 3A Metro South conference championship. But also to reach the state playoffs for just the seventh time ever.

  • Cougars hold on late vs. Lobos

    Noah Ansley, because of Evergreen’s proficient running game, is just as likely to hurt an opposing defense with his feet as the Evergreen quarterback can do with his arm. Never was that more true than on Nov. 4.

  • Late goal sends Cougars to state...

    ENGLEWOOD — Ethan Jackson felt like the Evergreen Cougars, which they’ve become accustomed to, had great possession of the ball and deserved to win their 4A boys soccer state semifinal game with Niwot on Nov. 5 at Englewood High School. Whether or not they would though depended on if someone, anyone, would catch the one break they needed.
    Jackson caught it.

  • Evergreen tops Niwot, advances...

    ENGLEWOOD -- Ethan Jackson punched home the game's lone goal left-footed from 25 yards out in the 70th minute and Evergreen advanced to the 4A boys soccer state championship game with a 1-0 win over Niwot on Nov. 5 at Englewood High School.
    The second-seeded Cougars (17-2) will play fourth-seeded Mullen (12-5-2), a 2-1 winner over top-seeded Broomfield, in the state finals on Nov. 9 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. Evergreen beat Mullen 1-0 in the teams' regular-season meeting.

  • Evergreen captures 4A state...

    THORNTON -- Evergreen, behind first-place team finishes in the vault, uneven bars and floor exercise, captured its second 4A state gymnastics title and first since 2008 on Nov. 5 at Thornton High School.
    The Lady Cougars scored a school-record 182 points, easily topping two-time state champion Elizabeth, which finished with 180.875 points. Thompson Valley came in a distant third with 170.1.

  • Mountain Bowl: Late TD gives...

    Evergreen quarterback Noah Ansley scrambled in from six yards out with 5 minutes, 39 seconds remaining in a defensive struggle, and the Cougars stopped Conifer quarterback Thomas Kim on 4th-and-goal from the 9 with 6.4 seconds left for a 13-9 victory in the Mountain Bowl on Nov. 4 at Evergreen High School.
    The win not only gave Evergreen (9-1) the 3A Metro South conference title, but also clinched a first-round home playoff game next week. The Colorado High School Activities Association will release first-round playoff pairings on Nov. 6.

  • Evergreen reaches 4A state...

    The possession game is Evergreen's bread and butter. If the Cougars control the ball and the clock more times than not they're going to win. Early on against Battle Mountain in the 4A boys soccer state quarterfinals on Nov. 1, Evergreen didn't possess the ball as much as it normally does.
    Even so, the Cougars still managed to score in the game's first three minutes thanks to Scott Boland and once they found their offensive rhythm Sam Hamilton scored twice en route to a 3-1 win over Battle Mountain at Evergreen High School.
