Moffat County soccer finishes first home game tied 3-3 with Aspen
Mother Nature made the final call Monday afternoon for the Moffat County High School boys varsity soccer team, and the result was tough but fair.
The Bulldogs ended their game with Aspen early due to stormy conditions and visible lightning, the outcome being a 3-3 tie.
MCHS recorded 12 total shots, with Ulises Silva scoring twice, the first off a well-timed pass from Marco Ayala early in the game.
With the score 1-1 at halftime, the Bulldogs quickly got back in the lead once Micajah Prescott booted in a penalty kick. Though the Skiers provided heavy competition, the group held on until a lightning delay was called with about 10 minutes left.
No sooner had they stepped back on the field then the weather got worse, and the officials ended it for good with five minutes remaining.
The game is the second of four within the course of one week for the squad, which won a Saturday away game against Grand Valley in Parachute. Silva and Prescott were also responsible for the goals in the 2-0 victory over the Cardinals.
Moffat County will see the Skiers again Oct. 1 in Aspen, which will count as a league game. The team will visit Rifle Saturday, but the Bulldogs’ first official 3A Region 3 conference game takes place Tuesday as they host the Bears.
The deadline to vote is Monday, May 20.
