Prep Sports Roundup: Glenwood outguns Rifle on the pitch
It took Glenwood Springs 23 minutes to put a goal on the board. Once the Demons did finally find net, they kept on finding it.
Scoring five times in the first half and four more times in the second, Glenwood scored a 9-1 boys soccer win at Rifle on a cold and rainy Tuesday.
Brandon Martinez and Foster Gross scored twice and Will Osier, Gabe Yen, Mauricio Ocho-Escandon, Jesse Monslave and Kenny Dardynski all added goals as the Demons snapped a five-game losing streak. Colton Witherell finished with four assists for Glenwood, which improved to 2-5 overall and to 1-5 in the 4A Western Slope League.
“You know, Rifle played a good style and a very disciplined game,” Demons coach Steve White said. “We were just able to put some combinations together and get some goals.”
The Bears’ lone goal belonged to Diego Suarez.
Battling discipline-related ineligibility issues, Rifle had the odds stacked against it from the start.
“Considering what we put on the field, we did well,” Bears coach Rich Carter said. “We had a couple players really step up to the plate and deliver a good game. Angel [Diaz] and Geo [Munoz] played extremely well.”
Rifle dipped to 2-5 overall and to 1-5 in the 4A WSL. The Bears will host Steamboat Springs on the school’s football field at 7 p.m. on Thursday. It’s the team’s homecoming game.
Glenwood will travel to neighboring Roaring Fork on Saturday. Game time is 11 a.m.
