MONTROSE, Colorado ” Grand Valley had two coed teams medal at the Montrose meet on Saturday.
The team of Austin Germiller and Brandi Krieg finished first, beating the favored team from Paonia along the way. The finish came down to the wire and the Cardinal duo outlasted the Eagles’ pair.
Also, Sam Whelan and Erin Pasquet finished seventh.
HOTCHKISS, Colorado ” In a game that was cut short by darkness, Hotchkiss was able to get things going just in time to earn the 4-0 shutout win over Roaring Fork.
The Rams held Hotchkiss through to a one goal lead through the first half and much of the second before the Bulldogs scored three goals in a six-minute span just as it got too dark to play, leading the referee to put a stop to the action.
“It was great game though,” Roaring Fork head coach John Ackerman revealed. “Really well played by both teams, just a really great game.”
RIFLE, Colorado ” Rifle started strong for the second consecutive game before being outplayed in the second half by Battle Mountain as the Huskies came back to win 4-2.
Led by Uriel Rodriguez’ two goals, the Bears were able to open to a 2-0 lead before the Huskies were able to get going. Both of Rodriguez’ goals came on assists by Jose Salazar.
Battle Mountain (10-4, 8-3) tied it up right before halftime on a direct kick, then opened the second half with constant pressure on the Bears’ defense while holding them scoreless for the final period.
“The game went alright,” Rifle head coach Ryan Mahler said. “The kids played hard in the first half, getting out to the early lead but Battle Mountain just out played us after that.”
