ENGLEWOOD — In an early battle of two of field hockey's power programs, No. 1 Colorado Academy and No. 4 Kent Denver played to a scoreless tie on Friday.
Each team is annually among the state's best. Kent owns the most titles in state history (nine), while Colorado Academy has won the past four, and is second with five championships overall.
The tie is actually quite significant. It is just the second time in the past 58 games that Colorado Academy hasn't won. However, with the tie, the Mustangs' unbeaten streak now stands at 71 consecutive games.
