Prep Sports Roundup: Rams rolls past Vail Christian; Coal Ridge falls to Aspen
CARBONDALE, Colorado – Nayeli Alfaro scored three goals, which helped pave the way to the Roaring Fork High School girls soccer team’s 9-0 victory over Vail Christian on Monday afternoon.
Alfaro also had a pair of assists to go with two-goal, one-assist performances from Emily Fisher and Taylor Adams for the Rams (2-1-1), who rebound after a 1-0 loss to Grand Valley on April 4.
Maddie Nieslanik added a goal and an assist, and Mia Wedemeyer also scored. Kristen Joiner and Shiloh Marriott added assists in the shutout for the Rams, who have outscored their opponents 14-1 in the four matches they has played.
The Rams’ previously scheduled game against Colorado Rocky Mountain School on Thursday has been changed to an undetermined date. Roaring Fork’s next game is scheduled for Saturday at Rangely.
EL JEBEL, Colorado – Greyson Keener and Patrick Steinbach accounted for each of Coal Ridge’s two hits, and the Titans were unable to capitalize on a good pitching performance from Hunter Hasenberg in a 3-0 Class 3A Western Slope League loss to Aspen on Monday afternoon.

Hasenberg allowed just three hits and a walk, struck out 12 and allowed just one earned run in going the distance for Coal Ridge (1-6 overall, 1-4 league play). Aspen pitcher Patrick Martin struck out five and walked two in also pitching seven full innings.
“I think we played pretty decent, and we would’ve been right in it had it not been for the errors we made,” Titans coach Danny Petrie said. “We made their pitcher look phenomenal.
“But I don’t want to take anything away from Aspen,” the coach continued. “They beat us, and they deserved the win.”
The Titans’ league game against Grand Valley on Tuesday was postponed due to inclement weather. Coal Ridge’s next scheduled game is April 16 at Cedaredge.
