PREP ROUNDUP: Coal Ridge soccer tops Grand Valley 4-1 in rivalry matchup; Glenwood lacrosse wins Fountain Valley tournament
Hosting the Grand Valley Cardinals Tuesday at ‘The Pasture’ in New Castle, the Coal Ridge Titans girls soccer team picked up a key 4-1 win in the season finale.
Grand Valley scored the first goal of the game in the second half after a scoreless first half, but the 1-0 deficit didn’t faze the Titans as Coal Ridge ripped off four straight goals to win 4-1.
In the win over the Cardinals, sophomore Libby Tharp scored two goals and added an assist, while senior Alyssa Wenzel and junior Maren Hough scored one goal each. Seniors Adriana Vargas and Amanda McPherson added one assist each.
Sitting at 8-6-1 (5-2 in 3A WSL) on the season, the Titans now await the playoff bracket announcement. Coal Ridge currently sits 25th in the 3A RPI, with the top 24 teams making the playoffs. League opponents Roaring Fork and Delta sit 23rd and 24th in the RPI standings with one game each remaining in the regular season.
