The winners of the Front Range League North and South divisions will be decided in the final game of the regular season for FRL teams.

No. 9 Fossil Ridge and No. 15 Fort Collins will play for the North Thursday, while No. 2 Legacy is at No. 7 Broomfield in the South.

The winners of each division will face off in a crossover tournament for the league title next week.

In this week’s look at the sport, let’s dive into a couple close league races across the state.

Class 5A

Front Range League: Lucas Montera had a goal and two assists, giving him 28 points on the season, as Legacy (10-1-1, 6-0) stayed atop the South with a 4-0 win over Fairview Tuesday.

The Lightning won the FRL last year, beating Broomfield on the final day of the regular season to win the South. Now, they have a chance to do it again.

Marcus Von scored in Broomfield’s 4-0 win over Monarch, pushing his league lead in points to 29.

Fossil Ridge (8-1-3, 5-0-1) beat Brighton Tuesday, while Fort Collins (7-2-3, 4-1-1) beat Loveland. They’ll meet up Thursday for the North crown. The Sabercats beat the Lambkins 1-0 last year, though Fort Collins has won five of the last seven in the series.

Class 4A

Pikes Peak: No. 6 Cheyenne Mountain (8-1-3, 2-0), outscoring teams 28-4 this fall, has won four straight and controls its own destiny in the final two weeks of the league race.

The Red-Tailed Hawks beat No. 17 Lutheran (8-3-2, 2-1-1) 3-0 behind two goals from Will Jones. They along with No. 9 Air Academy (9-3-1, 2-0-1) are the lone undefeated teams in league play and will meet Oct. 17.

Lutheran’s Blaise Richard leads the league in points with 34 (14 goals, six assists) and its goalie, Giovanni Natale, is the saves leader with more than nine per game. Air Academy’s Ryan Ellsworth is second in points with 31 (14, three).

Class 3A

Metro League: In a rematch of the 2022 C3A finals Tuesday, No. 2 Peak to Peak (11-0-2, 6-0-1) beat No. 1 Colorado Academy (10-1-2, 5-1-1) 2-1 to move closer to winning its first league title since 2010.

The Mustangs and No. 3 Kent Denver (10-1-1, 6-1) are still in the mix for the league crown. But just barely.

The Mustangs, fueled by Simeon Woldeyohannes’ 39 points (14 goals, 11 assists) this fall, hadn’t lost a game since Sept. 10, 2022.

The Pumas have won six in a row since tying Arrupe Jesuit a month ago, led in part by Ethan Wang’s 25 points (10, five). They beat Kent Denver 2-1 in August and Jorden Gyaltsen scored twice in the win over CA Tuesday.

Peak to Peak can clinch league without any help with a win at Forge Christian Thursday or The Academy Oct. 18.

Class 2A

Black Forest: No. 2 Thomas MacLaren (10-2, 4-0) just about wrapped up the league title with Tuesday’s 4-0 win at No. 18 Colorado Springs Christian (4-7-1, 4-1), which had won four of its previous five games.

The Highlanders’ 2-1 win over No. 3 Fountain Valley (10-1, 3-1) last month already had them in strong position to win a third straight league title. Samuel Montgomery led the way for them coming into the week with seven goals and six assists.

Fountain Valley’s Luke Marcus leads the league and is fifth in the state with 56 points (24, eight).

Thomas MacLaren can clinch a league title with a win over St. Mary’s or Vanguard next week.
