Craig Sports Briefs for Oct. 6, 2014: College volleyball to play in Craig

— The Spartans of Colorado Northwestern Community College will face off Monday against Laramie County Community College in a match free to the public in the gym at Moffat County High School, 900 Finley Lane.

The team is coming off road games that have taken them throughout the northwestern United States against College of Southern Idaho, North Idaho College and Washington’s Spokane Falls Community College.

Moffat County soccer shut down by Basalt

The Moffat County High School boys varsity soccer team lost, 2-1, on Thursday while on the road in Basalt.

The Longhorns put in two goals quickly, and the Bulldogs were to answer, struggling the first half, eventually getting onto the board in the latter half thanks to a penalty kick goal by Luis Lopez.

Back in goal after an injury, Alex Arellano had 17 saves. The Bulldogs recorded 11 shots, with four alone by Ulises Silva.

The team is 1-7-1 overall, 1-4 in 3A Region 3. Three games are coming up this week, all league matches, at Vail Christian on Tuesday, then the Bulldogs return home to host Rifle and Roaring Fork on Wednesday and Thursday.

“We really need to work on coming out aggressive,” coach Harry Tripp said about the need to improve from the Basalt game.

Moffat County cross-country competes in Northglenn

The Moffat County High School girls and boys cross-country teams finished 18th and 23rd respectively Friday at the Pat Amato Classic in Northglenn.

The first competition since the teams’ Sept. 20 home meet contained a large field. Emily Womble led the Bulldogs in the girls race, ranking 44 out of 224 at a time of 20 minutes and six seconds. Ashley Suits ran a 17:48 to come in 92 out of 257, his time one of nine personal bests by the MCHS boys.

The boys also fielded enough runners for the junior varsity race, placing 25th among teams, led by Remmy Kohpay, with a 20:07 time and a 115 placing.
