Demons, Tigers soccer battles to tie in 4A WSL tilt
Looking to avenge a 4A Western Slope League road loss earlier in the season, the Glenwood Springs Demons couldn’t quite figure out the visiting Summit Tigers Tuesday night at Stubler Memorial Field, battling to a 1-1 tie in league play.
Glenwood jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first 20 minutes of the game thanks to a goal by senior German Alvarado off of an assist from sophomore Reid Swanson, but that would be it on the night in terms of scoring for the Demons. Holding the 1-0 lead, the Demons tried to fend off the Tigers’ attacks, but Summit struck late in the first half to send the two league foes into the break tied at 1-1.
The Demons tried to break the tie in the second half, but Glenwood just couldn’t find the back of the net despite firing 12 shots on goal in the game.
Fortunately for Glenwood, standout senior goalkeeper Carlos Guardado was terrific in net once again, stopping 12 Summit shots to preserve the tie.
The tie pushes Glenwood’s record to 9-1-3 (6-1-3 in 4A WSL). The Demons host the Rifle Bears Saturday at Stubler Memorial Field in another 4A WSL battle.
