"Senior defender Jamie Simons was a powerhouse on defense today," Palmer coach Kelly Hillick said. "A solid brick wall that played fundamental and smart defense. She kept a great attitude throughout the entire game as well as keeping momentum for her team."

Cheyenne Mountain 18, Castle View 10

At Douglas County: Cheyenne Mountain scored 11 goals in the first half of a nonconference win over Castle View, and tacked on seven more in the second half for good measure.

Rocky Mountain 10, Air Academy 9, 2OT

At Air Academy: Regulation and one overtime period were not enough to decide a nonconference clash between Air Academy and Rocky Mountain, but unfortunately for the Kadets, the Lobos found the back of the cage in the second OT for the win.
