Prep roundup: Roaring Fork’s late goal nets tie with CRMS
CARBONDALE — Emily Fisher’s long free kick from 30 yards away found teammate Karen Nieblas for the game-tying goal with 30 seconds remaining, sending Roaring Fork High School’s nonleague girls soccer game against Colorado Rocky Mountain School into overtime before the teams finished in a 3-3 tie at the Roaring Fork Middle School field on Thursday afternoon.
The Pearls, who earned a 6-1 nonleague victory against Rifle on Tuesday and an 8-1 victory over Moffat County on March 7, moved to 2-0-1 this season following the tie. Roaring Fork moved to 0-1-1.
Ella Hartshorne finished with two goals and Emily Wiley added a goal for CRMS, which snapped a 2-2 tie when Hartshorne scored a goal for the Pearls in the final 10 minutes of regulation. Nieblas got the equalizer right before the end of regulation.
“They are a completely different team from what they’ve had in the past,” Roaring Fork coach Heather Fox said. “This is the best that I’ve seen them.”
Roaring Fork will begin Western Slope League play on Saturday when the Rams play at Rifle. CRMS has off until March 31 when it plays at Rangely.
Wight wins twice, but Glenwood girls fall to Aspen, Vail Mountain
ASPEN — Ivy Wight picked up a pair of straight set victories at No. 2 singles and No. 1 singles player Sophia Nelson also earned a victory, but Glenwood’s girls tennis team dropped a pair of dual matches to Vail Mountain School and Aspen at the Maroon Creek Club.
Wight won her first match 6-4, 6-3 against Vail before prevailing against Aspen, 6-2, 6-2, to remain unbeaten this year. Nelson earned a 6-2, 4-6, 10-7 win but fell in straight sets during her other match.
Falling in both of their matches was Kelly Tran at No. 3 singles, Maritza Ruiz and Kenna Zilm at No. 1 doubles, and Avery Nieslanik and Taylor Fiscus at No. 2 doubles. Becky Eggleston and Savannah Kelley at No. 3 doubles, and Linda Ramirez and Nina Aley at No. 4 doubles each lost their first matches against Aspen but were unable to complete their matches against Vail due to darkness and a time limit predetermined by the club, Glenwood assistant coach Bryan Gonzalez said.
Glenwood is off until March 20 when the Demons play at Durango.
