Tobie Rippy considers herself a defensive soccer player. But after scoring twice in a 4-0 win over Palisade, the Glenwood Springs defender may want to change her focus.It didn’t take long for Rippy to establish herself as a scorer Saturday.The junior knocked home the game’s first goal when she redirected Jaquie Romero’s corner kick, barely into the second minute.Angry after dropping a 3-1 decision at Eagle Valley Thursday, Rippy and the Demons maintained the offensive pressure, firing 13 shots at Palisade goalie Kelli Given in the first half.The win raised Glenwood’s league mark to 5-4-1 (5-5-1 overall).”After Eagle we decided to come out strong at the very beginning and score the first goal,” Rippy said. “After we lost to Eagle, it was so disappointing that we decided we were not going let that happen again.”And Rippy was involved in Glenwood’s next scoring play, as well. Led perfectly by Emily Granato’s pass, Rippy slipped two Palisade defenders and gave Given a quick deke for a 2-0 lead.Carly Stillman, who had a goal taken away by a Given save earlier, scored midway in the second half. Romero popped in a rebound after a Given save on Stillman in the 65th minute for the final score.Glenwood hosts Delta County Tuesday.
