Grand Junction edged host Glenwood Springs in overtime, 4-3, on Tuesday.

Eddie Sanchez scored two goals and Mike McGraw had one for the Demons, who dropped to 1-2 overall.

McGraw and Nate Kaup chipped in with assists.

Tommy Adgate scored both of Colorado Rocky Mountain School’s goals in a 3-2 overtime loss to visiting Hotchkiss on Tuesday afternoon.

Despite the defeat, Oysters coach Dan Pittz said he thinks his squad will learn a thing or two from the tightly contested affair.

“It was a great game for us,” the coach said. “For opening the season, it was a great learning experience. With the character of the team, I think it’ll be an important building block.”

After CRMS rebounded from a 2-1 deficit with a goal late in regulation, Hotchkiss scored its golden goal in the second of two overtime periods.

Scoring six runs in the seventh inning, Palisade scored a 17-2 softball win over host Rifle on Tuesday.

Emma Speer belted a pair of doubles for the Bears, who are still looking for their first win of 2010.

“I was pleased with how the girls played tonight,” Bears coach Cindy Skinner said. “We have been working on many game situations and tonight they executed well. We will continue to work on our game and, as long as we keep improving, we will get where we need to be.”

Though Rifle wrapped up the Peach Fuzz softball tournament with a pair of losses on Saturday, the Bears are striding in the right direction.

“We are continuing to take each game experience and use it as a tool to improve,” said coach Cindy Skinner, whose team lost to Cortez (18-0) and Prairie View (10-1). “The girls are learning and I am very pleased with how they are working to use the things that we are struggling with to gain experience and growth in each game.”

Against Prairie View, Shantel Leyba had two base hits and scored in the sixth inning on a triple struck by Cortney Cordova.

Emma Speer then hit a single and Brittany Neuroth was able to load the bases with a single.

Unfortunately for the Bears, they were unable to scratch out any more runs.
