GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – Michaela Mansfield’s hat trick led the Glenwood Springs girls soccer team to a 5-0 win over visiting Moffat County on Tuesday.

Demons coach Bryan Stoltzfus sent his side out with a few goals in mind, one being to score in the first two minutes.

Glenwood did just that, with time to spare.

Roughly 1 minute, 30 seconds into Tuesday’s game, Hannah McDermott pushed a through ball to Mansfield, who dribbled around the defense for a good look that found net.

Another of the Demons’ goals: a shutout. That came courtesy of a stingy defense and goalkeeper Danielle Turley.

All in all, Tuesday’s effort was one of the best Stoltzfus has seen from his team this season.

“I think it was our best passing game of the season,” he said. “It was our best heading game of the season, too. We’ve been working on that in practice. We’ve been telling the kids how important it is to play the ball out of the air. No exaggeration, we probably had 15 headers. They played really well.”

Nikki Pearson and Holly Brown rounded out the scoring for Glenwood, which improved to 5-1-0 with the win.

Leah Mansfield chipped in with two assists.

Hannah McDermott also had an assist for the Demons, who travel to Eagle Valley on Thursday.

DELTA, Colorado – Joey Clingan, the Roaring Fork girls tennis team’s No. 3 singles player, brought home a third-place finish from the past weekend’s Delta Tournament.

Clingan defeated a Grand Junction Central player in the third-place match.
