A roundup of high school sports in the Colorado Springs area on Thursday:


Pine Creek 2, Ralston Valley 1

At District 20 Stadium: It looks as if only spring break can stop Pine Creek's early-season roll.

Jade Odom returned to the field after recovering from appendicitis and made six saves, Athena Keuhn scored in the second half and Pine Creek (3-0) beat Ralston Valley (3-2) in its last game for 12 days.

"It feels good to kind of get a game where we feel like we're getting in a groove," Eagles coach John Frederick said. "The mental toughness this team has is showing up in games."

After a corner late in second, Keuhn blasted a rebound chance to give Pine Creek the lead. Myah Isais had a strong chance moments before that was deflected out by a defender at the goal line. It rolled to Keuhn, though, who finished a low drive for her second goal of the season.

Madeline Alhamra also scored for the Eagles, who won't play again until April 4 at Chatfield.
