Boys hoops: Powered by Stratman, D’Evelyn blows by Bulldogs
Luke Stratman’s 31 points fuelled D’Evelyn 80-37 blowout victory Friday at Arvada High School.
Arvada junior Jesse Jackson and senior Michael Jaramillo both had 10 points apiece, but it wasn’t enough to hang with a D’Evelyn team that is the class of 4A Jeffco.
Arvada (1-13, 0-6) will play at Green Mountain Friday at 7 p.m. D’Evelyn (14-1, 6-0) will play at Alameda Friday at 7 p.m.
Faith Christian came back from a slow start but suffered a heartbreaking 45-44 loss Friday at Kent Denver High School.
After getting outscored 14-5 in the first quarter the Eagles rallied and traded punches with Kent Denver in the fourth quarter’s final minutes. However, too many turnovers came back to haunt a Faith Christian team that has suffered close losses throughout the season.
The Eagles (5-8, 1-2) will attempt to get back on track when they host Lutheran Friday at 7 p.m.
Pomona couldn’t overcome their slow start at fell 50-37 Friday at Dakota Ridge.
The Panthers were held to five first quarter points and forced to play catch-up over the game’s final three quarters.
Pomona senior Even Dettke scored 10 points and added eight rebounds, but the Panthers were unable to find a second scorer and were unable to close a double digit gap. Pomona (1-15, 0-9), still looking for their second win of the season, will play at Chatfield Friday at 7 p.m.
Ralston Valley had their five game win streak snapped by Chatfield in a 79-68 overtime loss Friday at Ralston Valley High School. Chatfield outscored the Mustangs 18-7 in overtime to secure the dramatic victory. Ralston Valley got 27 points from senior Spencer Svejcar and senior Hunter Price added 16 more points, but it wasn’t enough to beat the best team in 5A Jeffco.
The Mustangs (9-6, 5-3) will attempt to start another winning streak when they play at Lakewood High School Friday at 7 p.m.
Alameda erased a double digit Green Mountain lead on their way to a 70-63 victory Friday at Green Mountain High School.
