Moffat County girls overwhelmed by Coal Ridge offense
For the third time in a week, the Moffat County girls soccer team couldn’t keep up with its opponent’s offensive output.
The Bulldogs played Grand Valley twice earlier in the week and scored first in each game but couldn’t keep the Cardinals out of goal afterward. Playing Saturday in New Castle at undefeated Coal Ridge, Moffat County was unable to score and lost a third straight game, 5-0.
Coal Ridge got two goals and an assist each from Aileen Galaviz and Paige Ryan. Jenny Call had the other goal for the Titans, who controlled the flow of the game with more than 30 shots. Delaney Baker had a busy day in goal for Moffat County, making 21 saves in the 60 minutes she spent as the Bulldogs’ goalie.
The Bulldogs got 13 shots off in the game but most were not major scoring threats. It was the first time Moffat County has been shut out since a 2-0 loss to Basalt on March 15.
Now at 2-5 on the season and 2-3 in 3A Region 3 play, MCHS sits in fifth place in the league. The Bulldogs will have a good chance to even their record this week, when they have another three-game slate.
It starts against Rifle on Tuesday in Craig. The Bears are playing down in 3A this year after struggling in 4A a season ago. They have yet to win a game.
Then Moffat County will take on Colorado Rocky Mountain School in back-to-back games Thursday and Saturday. The first game will be in Craig, and the teams will square off two days later in Carbondale. CRMS also is winless so far.
4:57 a.m. Near the intersection of Yampa Avenue and East Ninth Street, police in Craig responded to a traffic stop. A citation was issued to a driver, but police said no additional information was available Wednesday.
