After two postponements because of weather and conflicts with the track team schedule, the Glenwood Ice U14 girls soccer team, at last, got its spring season started on Thursday.

Against Carbondale at Gates Soccer Park on Thursday, the Ice ran away with a 5-0 win.

The first half remained scoreless for the first 22 minutes, despite Glenwood dominating play with the ball rarely crossing the center line.

Eventually, the Ice broke through when Lilly McSwain centered the ball from the right corner to the front of the goal, and Corey Gera slammed it into the net.

In the second half, with the setting sun no longer in players’ eyes, the Ice took control.

Savanna Pearson score the next goal six minutes into the half.

Two minutes later, Michaela Mansfield scored off an assist from Holly Brown.

Another two minutes passed before Mansfield took the ball up the field to send it flying over the Carbondale keeper’s head.

Danielle Turley, playing offense with team newcomer Rachel Rosenberger filling in at goalkeeper, put the final nail in the coffin with a goal off a pass from Jackie Knott.

The Glenwood Ice are returning to Western Slope play after five seasons in the Colorado State League. This spring, the team lost longtime member Hope Whitman to the Glenwood Springs High School team. That, plus early season schedule conflicts with middle school volleyball season, led coaches to opt for the local league once again.
