Littleton was not ready to call it a season. The Lions went into the second round of the Class 4A boys soccer tournament as the No. 15 seed and were faced with the daunting task of facing No. 2 Kennedy.
Seniors Zach Maguire and Ethan Schwartz didn't care. Neither did junior Ruben Cervantes. All three scored goals as Littleton beat Kennedy 3-1 to advance to the 4A quarterfinals.
The Lions also got a standout performance in goal as Luis Ramos played all 80 minutes and turned away five shots to get the shutout.
