Huskies down Rifle, 3-0

RIFLE ” All the Rifle Bears can do now is sit and wait.

That wait would have been a bit easier if they had pulled off the upset against Battle Mountain Saturday at Rifle High School.

Battle Mountain, currently second in the Class 4A Western Slope League girls soccer standings, notched a 3-0 victory over the third-place Bears.

It was Rifle’s final contest of the season and the Bears will now have to hope fourth-place Glenwood doesn’t catch them and take over the third and final playoff spot.

Rifle finishes the league slate with a record of 6-5-1, while Glenwood is currently 5-4-1 with two games remaining.

Battle Mountain scored one goal in the first half and put the contest away with a pair of second-half tallies for the win. Battle Mountain (9-1) trails undefeated Steamboat Springs (9-0) in the standings.

Kaitlyn Otto and Abby Willman each scored first-half goals as the Glenwood Springs girls soccer team downed Palisade 3-1 in a Class 4A Western Slope League girls soccer game Saturday at Stubler Memorial Field.

Marle Freitag added a second half goal to help the Demons improve to 5-4-1 in league play. Glenwood trails Rifle (6-5-1) for the final playoff spot.

Palisade drops to 3-7-1 with the loss.

BASALT ” Class 3A Basalt won its ninth straight game with a 1-0 squeaker over Class 4A Montrose Saturday at Basalt High School.

Katie Stoerkel scored the game’s lone goal in the 18th minute off an assist from Maddie Hoffman.

Goalie Autumn Caughern notched her seventh shutout of the season in the victory.

Basalt improves to 10-1, while Montrose drops to 7-5-1.
