Prep Sports Roundup: Titans blank VMS

Jorge Hernandez scored a first-half goal and Lalo Rodriguez added one in the second half as Coal Ridge blanked host Vail Mountain School in boys soccer on Thursday, 2-0.

Rey Chairez added an assist for the Titans, who improved to 2-0 on the season.

“The guys played really, really well,” Coal Ridge coach Mike Mikalakis said. “We possessed the ball a lot and passed the ball a lot. It was great to see for the second game of the season.”

Aspen came alive, scoring six unanswered goals in a 7-1 boys soccer win over visiting Grand Valley on Thursday.

After the Skiers went ahead in the 18th minute, Luis Pena countered with the equalizer for the Cardinals.

But Aspen would score four more times before halftime.

“The boys came out sluggish and they finished their chances on us,” Grand Valley coach Eric Sarno said. “The scoreline was harsh, and I definitely thought a coupe goals were unlucky, but we dug ourselves a huge hole. It just wasn’t our day.”

Tucker Schultz made seven saves for the Cardinals. Midfielders Santos Cornejo and Francisco Vicencio “battled and played hard,” Sarno said.

Hannah Cornelious and Baileyann Merry both doubled and Sierra Berger tripled for Grand Valley in a 14-3 softball loss at Delta on Thursday.

A six-run third inning helped the host Panthers pull away.

Haley Johnson pitched the distance for the visiting Cardinals, who dipped to 1-2 overall.

Rifle’s boys golfers finished a stroke away from first-place team finishes at tournaments this week.

The Bears shot a 236 at Vail Golf Club on Tuesday, placing just shy of a team title, which went to Vail Christian (235).

On Wednesday at Yampa Valley Golf Course in Craig on Wednesday, Rifle’s 228 team score placed it second only to Fruita Monument’s 227.

Danny Bartels’ third-place round of 76 led the Bears in Vail. Triston Quigley carded a fifth-place 78.

Teig Hauer (82), Ty Caron (83), Cody Capwell (86) and Wyatt Carter (92) were also in action.

Quigley’s 73 in Craig put him in a tie for second individually. Bartels (76), Caron (79), Hauer (79), Capwell (80) and Carter (89) also turned in solid rounds.
