The semifinals for the 2009 Colorado Field Hockey Championship involves three past state champs, including perennial contender Kent Denver.
No. 1 Kent knocked off Mountain Vista 2-0 on Friday behind goals by Molly Coates and Lizzie Strazza. That set up a semifinal with No. 5 Colorado Academy, which blanked Cherry Creek 2-0. Earlier this season, CA topped Kent 1-0. On the other side of the bracket, No. 6 Smoky Hill edged Palmer Ridge 3-2 while No. 2 Denver East whitewashed defending state champs St. Mary's 2-0.
