Glenwood finishes up with a win

Post Independent staff report
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Two seniors accounted for three goals on senior night as Glenwood Springs finished its boys soccer season on a high note.

Casey Montoya, a senior, scored twice and Billy Steele, also a senior, added a goal to lift the Demons to a 4-2 win over visiting Palisade on Tuesday.

Junior Travis Grange rounded out the scoring with a goal as the Demons finished up their season with a 5-9-1 record.

“We got three goals from seniors on senior night,” Glenwood head coach John Mount said. “It was pretty special for the those guys, and for the team, to get a good, strong finish to the year.”

After a string of recent ties, Aspen head coach Junior Sutherland wondered aloud whether his squad would ever receive a lucky break.

The Skiers finally got one Tuesday in Carbondale, and now they seemingly are a lock to reach the postseason.

Aspen took a 1-0 halftime lead after an own goal from Colorado Rocky Mountain School, tacked on one more in the opening moments of the second half and held on for a 2-1 victory in its regular-season finale.

With the win, the Skiers improved to 5-4-6 overall and 3-1-4 in 3A Region 3, strengthening their hold on fourth place with just a few games remaining Thursday. Region 3’s top five squads will advance to postseason play, which begins next week.

CRMS pulled to within one with about eight minutes remaining but could not produce the equalizer.

Hotchkiss won a boys soccer shootout with host Grand Valley, 5-3, on Tuesday.

Juan Rodriguez, Santos Cornejo and Pafean De La Cruz all scored goals for the Cardinals, who dropped to 1-12.

Coal Ridge’s volleyball swept its way to a Tuesday win over visiting Grand Valley.

Getting eight kills from Christa Currier, the Titans stormed to a 25-13, 25-20, 25-16 victory.

Jessica West and Zoe Reece belted five kills apiece and Rebecca Mitchell and Brandee Smith each swatted four kills as Coal Ridge improved to 9-8 overall and to 9-7 in the 3A Western Slope League.

Grand Valley, which was led by Jazmin McFarland’s nine kills, dropped to 7-10 overall and to 7-9 in league play.
