Wiley Burkett is doing what he needs to do to keep Cheyenne Mountain in its place as the top Class 4A lacrosse team in the state.

The senior scored six goals as the No. 1-ranked Indians beat No. 5 Air Academy 17-8 on Friday night.

What started as a competitive battle of top teams, Cheyenne Mountain only led 2-1 after the first quarter. But the offense found its groove from that point on, scoring 15 goals over the 36 minutes of play.

Ike Eastburn and James LaCerte contributed three goals a piece in the win.

Cheyenne Mountain (12-2 overall, 6-0 4A Southern) has a chance to wrap up an undefeated league slate when it plays Pueblo West on Monday.
