The Glenwood Ice U13 girls soccer team returned from a weekend on the road with two more shutouts and a rain postponement to stay undefeated.

On Saturday, the Glenwood girls faced off against the St. Vrain Bell of Longmont, the top-ranked team in the division. The Ice came close to giving up its first goal of the season when Glenwood’s keeper, Dannielle Turley and defender Corey Gera each made saves to keep the ball out of the goal.

Finally, halfway through the second frame, the Ice’s Hope Whitman kicked the ball across the goal to Holly Brown who sent it to the back of the net. With five minutes left on the clock, the Bell almost got a goal, but Turley deflected the attempt and sent it over the top of the goal. The Ice defeated Longmont, 1-0.

The skies turned ominous as the Ice traveled to Lowry for its second game on Saturday against the Fusion Cosmos. Glenwood’s Michaela Mansfield took the team to an early lead when she scored a goal three minutes into the game. Three minutes later, Whitman drove the ball down the right side and scored a second goal. Mansfield scored once more 12 minutes later. Then the rain came and continued throughout the remainder of the game. Cold, wet and weary, neither team was able to score and the game ended, 3-0.

On Sunday, the Ice faced Broomfield Blast Black. Broomfield scored one goal before the game was called because of bad weather. A makeup date has not yet been set.

Next Saturday the Ice host the Boulder Force Tar Heels at Gates Soccer Complex.

The Roan Plateau Rangers have won their first game of the season with a 5-1 victory over Colorado Fusion on April 22.

Mario Ortega had just four saves at goal due to the solid defensive line made up of Garett Babcock, Travis McCain, Nick Kneedler, Ty Bergeron, Dillon Schelling and Miles Blair. Darwin Cortez scored all five goals. Assists were made by Dru Marlow and Garret Babcock. The rest of the offense, made up of Kyle Zumbrennen, Caleb Ziegler, Brian DeMarie, Pablo and Ricardo Salgada, Brycen Fauser, Ryan Zalenka and Evan Muldoon all played a hard game with numerous shots on goal.

The Rangers’ (1-1-2) next home game is May 19 at Deerfield.
