Saturday’s prep roundup: Pine Creek snaps skid with boys’ basketball win over Fossil Ridge


Pine Creek 64, Fossil Ridge 60

At Greenwood Village: Max Lofy had a team-high 16 points, and Peyton Westfall hit a go-ahead 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter as Pine Creek beat Fossil Ridge to break a two-game losing streak in a consolation-round contest at the Cherry Creek Holiday Classic.

The Eagles (3-3) connected on 12 of 24 3-pointers after going just 6 of 27 from beyond the arc in a loss to Broomfield on Friday.

The back-and-forth game featured 11 lead changes and five ties. Westfall, who scored 11 points, gave Pine Creek a 46-45 lead with his 3-pointer, and the Eagles didn’t trail after that. Blake Hatchell and Grant Wilkinson added 11 and seven points, respectively.

Pine Creek went on a 10-0 run between the first and second quarters to take a 22-12 lead, but the Sabercats (3-6) fought back to forge a 29-all tie at halftime.

Broomfield 63, Fountain-Fort Carson 53

At Greenwood Village: Rashon Barron scored a career-high 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting, but Fountain-Fort Carson fell behind for good after a 20-10 deficit in the third quarter in a setback at the Cherry Creek Holiday Classic, the Trojans’ fifth straight.

F-FC (1-6) led 18-16 after the first quarter and trailed only 31-28 at halftime before Broomfield’s third-quarter run.

Keyshawn Maltbia added 11 points for the Trojans, who start league play Jan. 3 at Palmer.

Steven Croell led three scorers in double figures for Broomfield (6-3), which hit 20 of 30 shots from the free-throw line. The Trojans hit six of 12 free throws.

Alameda 70, James Irwin 62

At Denver: Alameda (6-4) bolted out to a 21-6 lead in the first quarter, then eventually held off James Irwin (1-6) in final-day action from the Denver West Tournament.


Valor Christian 10, Rampart 1

At Littleton: Valor Christian (6-1) easily swept a home-and-home series with Rampart (4-4).

The Eagles, who beat the Rams 7-1 Friday behind a 42-12 shots advantage, built a seven-goal advantage through two periods on Saturday.

Mason Hoehn, Luke Lonneman and Luke Wheeler each scored in the first period for the Eagles.
