HIGHLANDS RANCH -- Rock Canyon scored four goals in the second half and beat Prairie View 6-0 May 6 in the first round of the state 5A girls soccer playoffs.


The first half was played on even terms. RCHS scored in the last 30 seconds of the first half to take a 2-0 lead into the locker room.

Alex Sundberg and Kaycie Young scored twice for Rock Canyon. Julia Henning and Camryn Yacks combined for the shutout. PVHS goalkeeper Haley Pachelo made 16 saves.

"She was able to fend off many shot attempts with sprawling dives and a tireless work ethic," PVHS coach Jason Oulman said. "She was also extremely positive throughout the match and a vocal leader that anchored our goal line throughout the match."
