#4 Arapahoe upsets #2 Cherry Creek

Arapahoe has not beaten Cherry Creek in lacrosse at home since 2009 and the way the game started it looked like that wouldn’t change this year.  The Bruins came out fast and put the Warriors on their heels in the first quarter taking a 5-2 lead behind 2 goals from attacker Henry Adams.  Arapahoe gained some momentum in the second quarter by holding Creeks offense to 1 goal and closing the gap to 6-4 before the half behind goals from Riley Moynihan and Keenan Moffitt. Arapahoe continued to play a patient game and set the tone early cutting the deficit to 1 behind Moffitts third goal.  The Warriors began to dominate the third quarter scoring two more goals to take a 7-6 lead at the end of the period.  The Bruins picked it up in the fourth and the two teams exchanged goals until Arapahoe took a 10-9 lead into the last minutes of the game.  Cherry Creek had one last opportunity to tie the game but turned the ball over with 15 seconds remaining allowing Arapahoe to run out the clock to secure the victory.  Arapahoe was lead by senior Keenan Moffatt’s four goals.
