Colin Munro had six goals as Mountain Vista boys lacrosse won a monster showdown with Cherry Creek on Tuesday.

The Golden Eagles, ranked No. 2 in Class 5A, jumped out to a 9-5 lead at halftime, and went on to beat the No. 1 Bruins 14-8 at Shea Stadium.

With the win, Mountain Vista is now 8-0, the lone remaining unbeaten team in 5A.

Munro added an assist, and his seven goals brought his season total to 31, which ranks second in the classification.

Jake Frane had three goals and two assists for Mountain Vista. Jake Harvey also had three goals, and assisted on another for Mountain Vista.

The Golden Eagles also got two goals and an assist from Ryan Nunes, as well as 13 saves from Paxton Boyer.

Cherry Creek beat No. 3 Regis Jesuit in overtime last week. This loss is the Bruins' first in-state loss since the 2014 title game, a span of 21 games. They are the defending 5A champions, and went 17-0 against in-state teams in 2015, and opened 4-0 this season.

Both teams have a quick turnaround. Mountain Vista is at Lewis-Palmer on Wednesday, while Cherry Creek hosts Smoky Hill.
