Mountain Vista edges out Rock Canyon to claim 5A girls soccer championship

COMMERCE CITY –Douglas County rivals, Rock Canyon and Mountain Vista, faced off in the 5A Girls Soccer title game and in the end it all came down to one shot in overtime.
 
During the May 22 game at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Mountain Vista was able to outlast Rock Canyon. After a 40-minute lightening delay and a scoreless regulation period, Vista sophomore Megan Massey was able to get a shot past Rock Canyon's goaltender, Julia Henning, in the 85th minute.
 
"I had to double check to make sure it went in. "I wasn't sure, but everything was just so amazing tonight,” Massey told the Denver Post. She finished the season with a team-high of 16 goals. 
 
Meanwhile, the team’s defense, led by Gabbi Miranda, who was recently named a Gatorade Player of the Year, was able to hold Rock Canyon to only five shots on goal.
 
Mountain Vista lived up to its reputation as one of the best girls soccer teams the state has ever seen. The team finished its season with a nearly flawless season (19-1) and, of course, the state championship. This is the fifth state title for MVHS coach Theresa Echtermeyer
