    GOLDEN — In perhaps its biggest road game of the season thus far, the Evergreen girls basketball team brought the fire at Golden High School in the top-five matchup on Wednesday night, and the Demons got burned.

Despite opportunity after opportunity to sink the game-winner in the final seconds of the matchup, the Cougars just couldn’t get a shot to fall as they eventually lost, 58-57.
