Golden nets big league victory over Wheat Ridge

Golden kept its league championship hopes alive with a 4-0 victory over Wheat Ridge Thursday at North Area Athletic Complex.

In the process the Demons dashed any hopes that the Farmers still had about a 4A Jeffco league title.

It was sheer domination for Golden, who scored two goals on the first half and two more in the second half.

Senior’s Mark Seaholm and Casey Crowley, and junior’s Evan Gregory and Jake Bergstrom all scored goals for Golden. Seaholm and Gregory also recorded assists.

But the unsung hero for the Demons was senior goaltender Jasper Hughes, who stopped seven desperate Wheat Ridge shots on goal.

The Farmers will now use the rest of their regular season schedule to gear up for the playoffs, seeking higher glories than a 4A Jeffco league title.

After tough back-to-back league losses Wheat Ridge reeled off four straight league victories before the loss to Golden. The Farmers also have one of Jeffco’s best coaches in Tony Thomas, who has turned Wheat Ridge back into a 4A soccer power.

The Farmers (7-3-1, 3-3 in league) will play Littleton Friday at 4 p.m. at Littleton Public Schools Stadium.

Golden (9-3, 5-1 in league) will now prepare for its biggest game of the season when they face D’Evelyn Wednesday at 6 p.m. at NAAC.

The Jaguars are 10-1 this season and a perfect 6-0 in 4A Jeffco. The Demons will then wrap up their regular season with a meeting with Evergreen Tuesday at 4 p.m. at NAAC, in a match that could have a league championship on the line.  

Golden’s one league loss came in a 3-0 defeat to Littleton on Sept. 27. While it looked like a blowout on the scoreboard the Demons recorded 16 shots on goal that day.
