The Moffat County boys soccer team battled for the entire 80-minute game and some extra time at Grand Valley on Thursday, securing a 1-1 tie with the Cardinals.
The Bulldogs fell behind early but got the equalizing score from Jose Duarte later in the first half. The two teams then played out the rest of regulation and two overtime periods without another goal.
It was a decent result for Moffat County, which is still seeking its first win in Western Slope League play. But head coach Rusty Cox said this game very well could have been that first win with all the chances the Bulldogs created.
“We’ve got to finish on the opportunities we create for ourselves,” Cox said. “We created a lot of opportunities but only came away with the one goal.”
The Bulldogs are now 0-4-1 in WSL play, while the Cardinals are 0-5-1.
The game in Parachute was the end of a lengthy set of road games for Moffat County. After playing four straight on the road since Sept. 5, they now host the next five games, beginning with Vail Mountain on Saturday at Moffat County High School.
