On Dec. 9, 2017, Mountain Vista’s varsity ice hockey team hosted the Dakota Ridge Eagles at South Suburban Ice Arena for their third game of the season.
The Golden Eagles struggled from the opening face-off. Dakota Ridge maintained possession of the puck for majority of the game. In the first period, the Eagles scored three times on Vista and outscored the Golden Eagles, 18-4, on shots.
In the second period, Vista responded with two goals by ThunderRidge junior Jared Goodman and ThunderRidge sophomore Alex Vargo. Unfortunately for Vista, the Eagles came back with two more goals later in the same period.
Mountain Vista would go on to lose against Dakota Ridge, 5-2. The Golden Eagles’ next game is against Denver East at Magness Arena this next Friday, Dec. 15, at 3:00 p.m.
