Prep Sports Roundup: Titans win in soccer, volleyball

Coal Ridge’s boys soccer senior night went about as well as possible on Thursday, with the Titans scoring a 6-0 win over visiting Grand Valley.

Jose Rodriguez had a pair of goals and Jorge Hernandez, Edgar Enriquez, Cesar Ortiz and Jonathan Navarro all added one as Coal Ridge continued its winning ways. The Titans (10-3) have now won eight straight games.

“We played pretty well,” Coal Ridge coach Brian Blair said. “I think Grand Valley’s improved quite a bit since the first time we played them. In the first half, it was difficult to find easy chances. Eventually, us having the ball wore them down a bit. We got some easier opportunities in the second half.”

Grand Valley senior Miguel Mancinas played a solid 80 minutes on defense, said Cardinals coach Eric Sarno.

The Titans travel to Basalt on Tuesday.

With Rebecca Mitchell and Christa Currier leading the attack, Coal Ridge’s volleyball team took care of visiting Rifle in three games on Thursday.

The Titans won by game counts of 26-24, 25-13 and 25-13 on senior night.

“The first game was close,” Coal Ridge coach Scott Black said. “The kids were pretty amped up with senior night.”

The Titans, who improved to 12-5 overall and to 12-4 in 3A Western Slope League play, are off until Oct. 22, when they hit the road for matches at Basalt and Aspen to close out the regular season.
