Moffat County High School girls varsity soccer — 2010

Record: 3-8, 2-7 WSL

Playing in the cold and snow Tuesday, the Moffat County High School girls varsity soccer team was unable to cool a hot Glenwood Springs High School offense.

The Demons (5-1 overall, 4-1 in the Western Slope League) were able to win, 5-0, on Tuesday in Glenwood Springs

Coach Harry Tripp said the Bulldogs played well, but a quick Glenwood offense proved to be too much.

“It was a good game,” he said. “We’re still having troubles with the give-and-go.

“We follow too much, and we leave a man open. Then, they are off to the races.”

Skylar Tripp started in goal for MCHS (2-5 overall, 1-4 in the WSL).

The junior varsity team also fell in Glenwood, 4-2.

Harley Germond and Dan-

iella Martinez scored for MCHS’ junior varsity team.

The varsity team will play at 4 p.m. today, with the junior varsity team playing at 6 p.m. against Palisade High School at Woodbury Sports Complex, 350 S. Mack Lane.

Palisade (7-1-1 overall, 6-1 in the WSL) beat Moffat County, 4-0, on March 23 in Palisade.

Tripp said the Bulldogs will need to do a better job of passing the ball if they want to win.

“They need to be patient,” he said. “After the other team gets a goal, they get flustered, and just play kickball.

“They need to spread out and pass the ball.”

Soccer games mixed up

When the MCHS girls varsity soccer team played Roaring Fork on April 10, Moffat County actually played Roaring Fork’s junior varsity team.

Roaring Fork’s varsity team won, 4-1, against MCHS’ junior varsity team at 1 p.m., and then Moffat County’s varsity team defeated Roaring Fork’s JV team, 6-0, at 3 p.m.

The games were played by mistake, MCHS Athletic Director Richard Wildenhaus said.

Because the score was kept and the game times were posted, Moffat County’s varsity team was credited with the win.
