HIGHLANDS RANCH – Valor Christian was able to survive the bitter cold night and Battle Mountain’s late push at the end of the game with a 10-9 victory over the Huskies, remaining the lone unbeaten team in 4A.
With under seven minutes remaining in the game, Battle Mountain (5-1) trailed 10-7, but pulled within a goal after Clayton Davis scored with one minute left in the game.
The Valor defense stepped up big in the final minute though and got two big stops with a man down to help secure the win.
The Eagles (7-0) will host Air Academy next on Tuesday at 7 p.m. and Battle Mountain will play at Ponderosa on Saturday at 5 p.m.
