Columbine (10-2, 5-0 in league) had an 11-2 lead at halftime. Juniors Whitney Block, Emma Maxwell and Madison Hadden, along with senior Maeve Hungerford — scored for Columbine in the opening 10 minutes.

Six Rebels players had a multiple-goal game. Hungerford and junior Alea Tolley had four goals each. Block and sophomore Aliyah Weant had three goals each. Maxwell and senior Angela Naughton had a pair of goals each. Columbine senior Annie Van Norstrand picked up the victory in goal for the Rebels.

Columbine is attempting to win back-to-back conference title and claim the league title in Jeffco for the third time in four years. The Rebels close out conference play next week against Bear Creek (2-7, 0-5) and Chatfield (7-4, 4-0).

Green Mountain (6-5, 1-4) was coming off a nice non-league victory over Steamboat Springs, but just couldn’t generation enough offense to knock off Columbine.

Senior Samantha Day and freshman KC Ossello scored for the Rams in the first half against the Rebels. Senior Sara Haefele, who is over the 30-goal mark this season, put in a pair of goals for Green Mountain in the second half.
