PREP ROUNDUP: Demons bite Bulldogs with big boys soccer rally
GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Cameron Horning scored a goal with 10 minutes remaining in Glenwood Springs High School’s Class 4A Western Slope League soccer match against Palisade, capping the Demons’ rally from a two-goal halftime deficit for a 4-3 victory over Palisade.
Oscar Gallegos scored goals for the Demons in the first and second half, and Ben Dunn’s header goal off a corner kick from Andrew Tucker tied the match at 3-all after the Demons (3-2-0 overall, 2-2-0 league) were down 3-1 at halftime. Then came Horning’s goal, which was the last of three unanswered scores the Demons notched to complete the comeback.
Glenwood coach Steve White credited Mason Yellico and Elias Vasquez for helping provide the Demons’ offensive spark in the second half. Vasquez had an assist on Gallegos’ second goal, which brought Glenwood within one.
“I’m really proud of how the guys responded,” White said. “They really kept things alive. Those are some hard-working kids out there.”
