LAKEWOOD – Despite a slow start to their season Bear Creek girls’ soccer sees things improving rapidly.

One of the youngest teams in 5A Jeffco, the Bears (0-3) are still in search of their first victory of the season.

But none of those three loses were blowouts, and in fact they were beat by Green Mountain 2-0 on March 16 and by Rangeview 2-1 on March 21.

“We are close. We have been in every game we have played this season we just need to put it all together,” Bears coach Pat Moore said.

The Bears will play Dakota Ridge Monday at 6 p.m. at Lakewood Memorial Field.

Pirates still winless

Alameda girls’ soccer is still in search of their first victory of the season but hope the second half of their season brings a fresh start.

The Pirates (0-5-1) were beat by Skyview 10-0 on March 19, but they have lost several close games early in the season.

Alameda is hoping that a tough non-league schedule has prepared them for 4A Jeffco league play. The Pirates will play at Jefferson Academy Saturday at 10 a.m.

Teams kickoff league play

Golden and Arvada girls’ soccer will kick off league play when they meet Friday at 4 p.m. at North Area Athletic Complex.

Golden (2-3-1) is looking to snap a two-game skid. The Demons lost two closely contest games before the break leaving a bad taste in their collective mouths.

Arvada (2-1-2) lost their first game of the season when they fell 6-1 at Englewood on March 21.

The two teams match will kickoff 4A Jeffco league play when they meet on Friday.

Crucial 5A Jeffco match

Arvada West and Ralston Valley girls’ soccer will play a critical midseason match when they meet Monday at 4 p.m. at North Area Athletic Complex.

Arvada West (4-1) has out scored their opponents 14-5 this season with their only loss coming to Rocky Mountain (2-1) in mid-March.

Ralston Valley (3-2) had a three game winning streak snapped by Chatfield 2-1 before spring break.

This midseason meeting will play a big factor in both team’s aspirations of winning a 5A Jeffco league title.

Eagles look to soar

Faith Christian girls’ soccer opened up their season with a pair of wins but have since dropped back-t0-back games going into spring break.

The Eagles (2-2) were shutout twice before break but are planning on a second half of the season resurgence when they host Fort Lupton Friday at 6 p.m.

Senior Mara Magnussun has been on a tear scoring five goals already this season.

Jags starting to heating up

D’Evelyn girls’ soccer is looking to carry over momentum they took from a 4-1 victory over Lakewood before spring break.

The Jaguars (2-1-1) are unbeaten in three straight games after opening the season with a 2-1 loss at Valor Christian.

Lakewood (0-1-1) is still in search of its first win of the season.

The Tigers will play at Fossil Ridge Saturday at noon.

D’Evelyn will play host Evergreen Friday at 6 p.m. at Lakewood Memorial Field.

Pomona looks to rebound

After opening the season with back-to-back wins Pomona girls’ soccer has since dropped three straight matches.

The Panthers (2-3) look to get back on track when they play host to Chatfield Thursday at 4 p.m. at North Area Athletic Complex.

Despite having a losing record Pomona has outscored their opponents 12-7 on the season.

They now need to convert their explosive offense into victories.
