Tuesday, Sept. 28, Roaring Fork @ Delta

The Rams spread seven goals across five players and got a hat trick from senior Ross Barlow as they stampeded Delta in a 7-0 road win on Tuesday.

Roaring Fork scored two goals in the first half before exploding for five in the second. Seniors Carlos Perez Rios and JR Mercado, juniors Daniel Vega and sophomore Jacob Barlow also found the net.

The younger Barlow also tallied an assist and was named man of the match, according to MaxPreps Colorado data.

Senior goalkeeper Jacob Martin made three saves in his 65 minutes of play. Junior keeper Diego Loya was not called upon to make any stops in his 15 minutes.

Roaring Fork improved to 7-1 on the season and remained undefeated in their five league games, setting up Thursday’s meeting with fellow undefeated club Coal Ridge.

Tuesday, Sept. 28, Rifle @ Moffat County

Rifle boys soccer headed up to Craig to take on Moffat County Tuesday. The Bears crushed the Bulldogs 8-0 in a lopsided affair.

The Bears are now 4-5 on the season. They stand in sixth place in the 3A/4A Western Slope League.

Tuesday, Sept. 28, Coal Ridge vs. Aspen

The game between Coal Ridge and Aspen was postponed after 25 minutes due to lightning. It will be resumed on Thursday at Coal Ridge with the Titans holding a 1-0 lead.


Tuesday, Sept. 28, Basalt @ Aspen

The Longhorns used a persistent offensive barrage to move past the Skiers on the road 21-10. Basalt scored at least four runs in four different innings, topping out at six in the fourth. That rally put Basalt ahead 11-6 and sent them on their way to victory.

Junior Kiera Larson went 1-for-4 but scored four runs and drove in another four with the help of a pair of walks. Sophomore Taylor Anthes also had four RBIs, tying for the Longhorn team lead. Junior Corey Bollock hit a home run for one of her two hits.

Senior Bella Meraz was credited with the win after pitching five innings. She allowed 10 runs, but only one was scored as earned. Larson pitched two innings, striking out all six hitters she faced.

The Longhorns improved to 5-12 on the season. They have three games remaining on their schedule — a doubleheader at Meeker on Tuesday and a road trip to Rifle on Thursday to conclude their season.

The Coal Ridge Lady Titans beat Basalt 3-0 at home Tuesday for a key 3A Western Slope League win. Game scores were 25-21, 25-23, 25-18.

Coal Ridge was led by Lydia Dye with seven kills and five blocks; Mikayla Cheney with five kills; Peyton Garrison with seven kills and 15 digs; Emma Morgan with 26 assists, three aces and two blocks; Justice Segovia with 23 digs and two aces; and Bayley Jacobson with 16 digs and two aces.
