Prep Roundup: Demons cruise past Warriors
Behind a five-goal performance from Miguel “Papas” Peralta, the Glenwood Springs Demons’ boys soccer team rolled Tuesday to a 6-1 win over the visiting Grand Junction Central Warriors at Stubler Memorial Field.
Peralta scored five of the six goals for the Demons, while Clayton Horning netted the other goal in the blowout win. Assisting on one of Peralta’s goals was Jason Vasquez, who just so happened to be making his first varsity start for Glenwood. Vasquez’s brother Jonathan added one assist as well.
As for Peralta, it was only a matter of time before the senior forward busted out with a big night, according to Glenwood Head Coach Wayne Smith.
“We were waiting for him to have a big night for us,” Smith said. “After he scored his first goal of the night I turned to my assistant coaches and said he was in for a big night, and he delivered.
“He was really active and had a lot of good movement away from the ball, giving himself a chance to score some goals.”
With the win, Glenwood moves to 2-2 on the season. The Demons will face off with Eagle Valley Thursday at 6 p.m. at Stubler Memorial Field.

With the win, Roaring Fork improves to 5-3 (3-0 3A WSL) on the season.
