Montrose deals Glenwood its first loss of 2011

Jeff Caspersen Post Independent

Goals by Hope Whitman and Lily McSwain weren’t enough to lift Glenwood Springs in a 4-2 girls soccer loss to visiting Montrose on Thursday.

The Demons fell behind 3-1 at halftime and nearly mustered enough offensive firepower to square the game up, but a pair of near-goals in the second half just missed the mark.

One shot clanged off the crossbar and struck the grass just in front of the goal line and another shot drilled a tire behind the post.

“We answered,” Glenwood Springs coach Steve White said, “but those were two we didn’t get to keep.”

Still, White’s squad picked up its level of play in the second half against a bigger school.

“It was a great challenge for us,” he said. “I think our other opponents, we’ve been able to handle pretty readily, so this was a good test for us. We probably learned a lot about ourselves.”

The Demons (3-1) are off until next an April 5 trip to Eagle Valley.

Montrose improved to 3-3-1.

Basalt scored six times in the second half to secure a 9-0 girls soccer win over Grand Valley in Parachute on Thursday.

Julia Kapustka scored twice for the Longhorns, as did Ginevra Moore and Tori Kungli.

Basalt improved to 4-0 overall.
