Glenwood Springs upped its season baseball record to 7-1 Saturday by taking a pair from Steamboat Springs by tallies of 3-2 and 7-1.

Led by a 3-for-4, two-RBI plate performance by Beau Chicoine, Glenwood Springs scored a 3-2 win in the opener. Each of Chicoine’s hits were doubles. He also pitched a dandy, scattering six hits and striking out nine in a seven-inning effort.

Connor Jackson chipped in a 2-for-3, one-RBI record at the plate for the Demons.

Chance Stevens turned in five solid innings of eight-strikeout, two-hit ball to pace Glenwood in the nightcap.

Chicoine completed a 6-for-7 day by going 3-for-3 with a homer and three RBIs.

The Demons’ Tim Cashel, who pitched the final two innings, was 2-for-4 with a double at the plate, while David King, Barrett Jensen, Jackson, Chad Sommers and Taylor Larsen all added hits.

Glenwood, 5-0 in Class 4A Western Slope League play, hosts rival Rifle at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Rifle, taking the field without a big chunk of its team due to suspensions, dropped both ends of a baseball doubleheader at Moffat County on Saturday, losing 15-2 and 8-4.

Asa Fix was 2-for-6 on the day and homered in the nightcap to lead the Bears offensively. Alex Haynes also collected a pair of hits on the afternoon.

Too much Jordan Williams did Rifle in. The slugger hit four home runs and drove in 10 runs while going 5-for-6 at the plate for Moffat.

The Bears are now 8-3 overall and 4-2 in Class 4A Western Slope League play.

Celeste Comings scored a goal with five minutes left in the game, preventing a shutout, but it was not enough to prevent a loss as the Roaring Fork girls soccer team lost 2-1 to Aspen on Saturday.

Aspen scored one goal 13 minutes into the game on a direct kick just outside the box. The second Aspen goal, 30 minutes into the second half, seemed to motivate the Rams, who really began to attack the Skiers’ goal.

Then on a bizarre play, with five minutes left, the Rams kicked the ball into the Skiers defensive zone. The ball took a huge bounce, over Aspen’s goalie and ricocheted off the cross bar and down the ground a foot outside the goal. Comings, who was charging the goal, was right there to tap it in and get the Rams on the board.

Up next, Roaring Fork will play crosstown rival Colorado Rocky Mountain School on Tuesday.

Class 5A Grand Junction held off visiting Coal Ridge 3-1 in girls soccer play on Saturday.

The Class 3A Titans, who dropped to 4-3-1 overall, take on Rifle Tuesday in another non-conference tilt.

Grand Valley swept a baseball doubleheader from Glenwood’s junior varsity team on Saturday, winning by counts of 6-5 and 15-11.
