Roaring Fork crushes CRMS

CARBONDALE – Roaring Fork’s first win of the season came at the expense of its crosstown rival.Celeste Comings scored three goals, Taylor Wagner scored two and five other players found net as the Rams scored a 10-0 win over Colorado Rocky Mountain School on a chilly Tuesday afternoon at Roaring Fork High School. Despite the lopsided score, the meeting of Carbondale schools was a friendly one.”We love to play CRMS,” Rams coach Brad Zeigel said. “There’s the crosstown thing. All the girls know each other really well. It’s a fun thing, a fun, community game.” Zeigel’s squad posted matching five-goal halves, with Wagner striking first with a goal off a corner kick from Hanna Burleigh roughly six minutes in.Annie Tempest jammed home a rebound for a goal midway through the first half, and the score snowballed from there. Comings scored the next two goals and Gaby Mata pounced on a loose ball and netted a goal just before the half to build a 5-0 advantage.Wagner and Comings scored to kick off the second half, followed by goals by Kathy Vega, Burleigh and Alli Zeigel to round out the Rams’ bloated ledger. “I think we were moving the ball around really well today,” said Wagner, a senior. “We had really good passing, and we played aggressively. We were more confident out there. It was nice to see that with my team.”The win upped Roaring Fork’s season record to 1-7, while CRMS fell to 0-2. Cold weather, replete with on-and-off light snow showers, and a one-sided score did little to dampen the spirit of the game.”We know a lot of (the CRMS girls),” Wagner said. “A lot of us are really good friends. We were all having a good time. It’s more lighthearted.” On Thursday, Roaring Fork will travel to Basalt for a match against the league-leading Longhorns, while CRMS will host Rangely. Both games are slated for 4 p.m.In other soccer action, Glenwood Springs beat Palisade, 4-1, on Tuesday.
