Moffat County soccer suffers loss in home opener

Giving up one bad goal is difficult enough to overcome in a low scoring soccer game. On Tuesday, the Moffat County High School boys soccer team gave up two bad goals in a 3-2 overtime loss to Rifle High School at Loudy-Simpson Park. In their home debut for the 2012 season, the boys team was treated to a rainy afternoon game, but played well for most of the game. After giving up an early goal to Rifle, the Bulldogs tied the game quickly, then took a lead which they held for most of the second half. But a poor clearance to the middle of the field resulted in an equalizing goal for the Bears with less than two minutes to play.
