BOULDER -- Boulder High School turned on the defense in the first round of the state 5A soccer playoffs Oct. 29, and it paid off.
The Panthers held Adams City to one shot in the first half and just eight for the game en route to a 4-0 win over the Eagles.
Jamie Astroga, LeRoy Alphonse, Sam Kirk and Blaise Werner scored Boulder's goals. Adams City's goalkeeper, Ernesto Galvan, made a half-dozen saves.
We'll have more on the game in the Nov. 3 issue of the Commerce City Sentinel Express.
