Full slate for area preps
League games dominate today’s prep schedule as area high school spring sports teams get back to a full slate of contests for the first time since spring break.
Probably the most anticipated match of today’s two girls soccer games on tap pits long-time Class 4A Western Slope League rivals Glenwood Springs against Steamboat for a 6 p.m. contest at the Demons’ Stubler Memorial Field.
Both teams will have streaks at stake when they line up this evening.
Steamboat opened the year with three shutout victories ” all against WSL teams.
Glenwood, whose yet to put its entire starting team on the field, is 0-3 overall and 0-1 in league and has not scored a goal this season.
At 4 p.m. in Carbondale, Colorado Rocky Mountain School opens its 2004 campaign against league opponent Eagle Valley (1-0-1).
Two of today’s three scheduled prep baseball games will also be played in the area.
An attractive nonleague battle is brewing in Carbondale where a pair of unbeaten 3-0 teams in Class 3A Roaring Fork takes on 2A powerhouse Paonia at Patch Memorial Field on the Roaring Fork High School campus.
The Rams boosted their record to 3-0 on a league doubleheader win over Gunnison last Saturday.
Further up valley, winless Basalt (0-3 overall, 0-2 Class 3A, WSL) looks to post its first victory of the year against Eagle Valley (1-3, 0-0). Both games are slotted for 4 p.m. starts.
In Class 4A action, Rifle (2-4, 0-2) hopes to rebound from last Saturday’s twin-bill defeat to Delta with a 3 p.m. road game against Palisade (3-4, 0-1) at Canyon View Park in Grand Junction.
