On Saturday May 17 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Ponderosa’s Boys Lacrosse team beat the defending champion Wheat Ridge Farmers, becoming the 2014 Colorado 4A Boys Lacrosse State Champions.
The Farmers didn’t go down without a fight. While Ponderosa had held a convincing lead throughout the game, leading 7-4 at halftime and 12-7 at the end of the third quarter, in the final quarter Wheat Ridge mounted a come back.
In the end, Ponderosa was able to hang one, claiming the title with a 13-11 win, in what some would call a “major upset in Colorado high school lacrosse,” according to CHSAA’s Dan Mohrmann.
