Prep Roundup: Demons rebound for victory over Huskies
GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Wane Smith made some changes to the back defensive line of the Glenwood Springs High School boys soccer team’s game against Battle Mountain on Thursday.
It worked, and so did a lot of things for the Demons against the Huskies. Four different players scored goals for Glenwood,which never trailed on its way to a 4-2 Class 4A Western Slope League victory at Stubler Memorial Field.
“We had some guys who stepped up big,” Smith, the first-year Glenwood coach, said. “We were able to use some team speed to keep up with [Battle Mountain], and we were much more effective from the outside midfield … in being able to spread out the point of attack.
“We were in the driver’s seat, and they were on their heels,” the coach added.
Daniel Garces and Cameron Horning each scored first-half goals for the Demons (2-3-0 overall, 1-3-0 WSL), who led 2-1 at halftime. Eric Garcia and Juan Martinez added goals in the second half, with Martinez’s goal coming with about four minutes remaining before stoppage time.
Battle Mountain (2-1-0 league and overall), which had outscored its previous two opponents, Palisade and Delta, by a combined score of 15-0, scored its two goals on penalty kicks.
Glenwood next plays a nonleague game at Coal Ridge on Tuesday.
Roaring Fork 10, Rifle 0
RIFLE — Lalo Clemente scored four goals and Ben Carpenter added two for the Rams (1-1-0), who rebounded from a disparaging season-opening loss at Aspen on Tuesday with a convincing victory over the Bears.
Ariel Palomera, Erik Carrillo, Misael Ramos and Abe Hernandez also added goals for Roaring Fork, who held a 5-0 lead at halftime. Ramos and Lorenzo Andrade also had a pair of assists for the Rams.
Roaring Fork continues nonleague play on Tuesday when the Rams play Grand Valley in Parachute. Rifle (1-3-0) will play at Moffat County on Tuesday.
