Moffat County soccer drops pair at home

It wasn’t a tale of two halves, but each half had two tales Monday at Loudy-Simpson Park. The Moffat County boys soccer team hosted Roaring Fork and despite making a comeback in the first half, didn’t have the same intensity in the second frame and fell 5-2. The improvement the Bulldogs have shown in recent weeks was not enough to overcome a tough Roaring Fork squad, which outmatched Moffat County in the second half. Head coach Rusty Cox said it was a case of the Bulldogs losing some of their drive during the intermession. “They just kind of laid off,” Cox said. “I’m not sure what to say about it. They went into a defensive mode, and then (Roaring Fork) was winning in the middle and getting good touches and nice passes.”
