Bulldogs get best of Demons
CRAIG – The Glenwood Springs Demons boys’ soccer team had trouble finding the net Saturday, falling 3-2 to Moffat County in a Class 4A Western Slope League high school soccer game here.
“We had probably four breakaways, so their defense wasn’t stopping the forwards,” Glenwood coach Bob Guska said. “We were putting it wide and putting it over the goal. We just weren’t putting it in.”
The Demons (1-1, 4-2 overall) trailed Moffat County 1-0 at the half and the Bulldogs extended that lead to 2-0 early in the second half.
Glenwood’s Derek Weller, who has had to expand his offensive duties with leading scorer Ross Smith out, took at pass from Alex White to trim the lead to 2-1. Moffat answered shortly thereafter, however, scoring on a penalty shot for a 3-1 edge.
Joey Murray again brought the margin down to one goal, scoring with 20 minutes left in the contest, but the Glenwood couldn’t notch the equalizer.
Glenwood was without Smith for the second game due to back problems. He is, however, expected back for the Demons’ home-opener Thursday against Steamboat Springs.
“(Smith) is usually good for a goal or two in a game, so that’s definitely affecting our double threat up there,” Guska said.
In junior varsity action, Glenwood defeated Moffat County 3-2 to improve to 2-0 on the season.
