The Mustangs were shut out by host Cherry Creek 4-0 in league at the Stutler Bowl in Greenwood Village.

Mullen, which trailed only 1-0 at halftime, is 3-4 overall, 0-2 in league.

“It’s a tough one,” head coach Matt Degitis said. “It’s a bad matchup for us. (The Bruins) are very fast and it’s a tough night for us.”

However, Degitis said his team, in 4A, playing in the 5A-based Centennial will help prepare the Mustangs later in the season.

Mullen will take on host George Washington on Saturday, April 9, 3 p.m., in nonleague.
