PREP ROUNDUP: Oysters stun Longhorns in boys soccer
BASALT — Jari Lindholm and Ben Jenkins each scored a pair of goals for Colorado Rocky Mountain School’s boys soccer team, which held off a late push from Basalt in the Oysters’ season-opening 2-1 victory on Tuesday.
Tyler Staples notched 15 saves in goal — 14 in the second half — to help CRMS (1-0-0) upset the ranked Longhorns.
“This is the first time in my history as coach that we’ve beaten Basalt on their field,” CRMS coach Dan Pattz said. “It might be the first time in the history of our school we’ve done that. Basalt might say they lost the game, but our boys went out there and won it.”
Patrick Flory assisted Lindholm’s goal in the 23rd minute, and Ben Holland’s assist of Jenkins’ goal helped give the Oysters a 2-0 halftime lead.
CRMS continues Class 3A Region 3 play Saturday at Grand Valley in Parachute.
