‘Horns soccer too much for Roaring Fork

Staff Report

CARBONDALE – The Basalt Longhorns girls soccer team got out to an early lead then wore down Roaring Fork to remain undefeated in the Class 3A Western Slope League

Ukare Sano notched a pair of goals, while Ashley Eaton and Megan Stewart each scored once to secure the 4-1 victory on Saturday at Roaring Fork High School.

The Longhorns jumped out to a 3-0 lead with two first-half goals and another to open the second half.

The Rams got on the board with a free kick from the right side by Tessa Zugschwerdt into the lower left side of the goal.

The Rams, however, couldn’t keep the rally going.

“I though we had a pretty good game,” Roaring Fork coach Gail Rippe said. “We were a little weak in the center of the midfield and only had two subs, so we were pretty exhausted.

“We played pretty even in the first half and then they stepped it up a little and we tired out.”

The first-place Longhorns improve to 5-0-1 in league, while Roaring Fork drops to 3-2.
