Demons top Bears in final regular season game
Hosting the rival Rifle Bears Saturday morning at Stubler Memorial Field, the Glenwood Springs Demons boys soccer team closed the regular season strong with a 4-1 win.
Against the Bears, seniors Alonso Pacheco, Mikey Willis and Colton Taylor and junior Leo Mireles found the back of the net in the 4-1 win, helping the Demons cap off the regular season with a 9-6 (8-4 4A Western Slope League) record.
“We came out a little bit flat, little bit slow,” Glenwood head coach Wayne Smith said. “It took us a while to score. Rifle has certainly improved. They played us tight in the back end and it was a cold, windy day out there. I kept telling the guys to keep the ball down and play our game. We played a little too direct. Rifle’s keeper did a great job of coming out and gathering the ball.”
Rifle’s Jose Bjora scored the Bears’ lone goal, while Caleb Opstein assisted on the goal.
With the loss, Rifle falls to 4-10 (3-8 4A WSL) on the season.
The Bears will host Summit Thursday afternoon at Rifle High School.
