Roaring Fork kicks past CRMS 2-0

Roaring Fork made the trip across town count.

The Roaring Fork girls soccer team ventured to Colorado Rocky Mountain School Saturday afternoon and took home a 2-0 victory, another win the 3A Western Slope League for the Rams.

Sophomore Erin Young put the visiting Rams ahead 1-0 about 14 minutes into the match on the miniature soccer field at CRMS.

A series of attacks and counters by both teams failed to yield goals.

Clinging to the skimpy 1-0 lead, the Rams increased the margin 16 minutes into the second half when Young scored again.

The Rams had generated pressure from a host of players.

And the defense turned back all but a few tough shots on goal, which were saved to Roaring Fork goalie Ali Romanus.

The CRMS scoring chances came from Becky Anderson, Ruby Kimberly, Mei Bailey, among others.

The Rams improved to 2-1-0 in league play with the victory. They are 2-3-0 overall.

They are back in action Tuesday when Eagle Valley visits for a 6 p.m. varsity game.
