The Moffat County High School boys varsity soccer team took it to their first opponent of the season Tuesday, winning, 4-1, against the Warriors of Grand Junction’s Central High School.

Ulises Silva led scoring with two goals and four total shots, while Marco Ayala and Micajah Prescott each netted one. Hugo Snyder and Diego Quezada both had one assist, while goaltender Daniel Moore had 15 saves.

Coach Harry Tripp said players were completely in sync with phenomenal passing.

“It was beautiful, it was like I was watching a game on TV,” he said.

The group will play in Steamboat Springs Thursday, with the Bulldogs’ first home game next Tuesday against the Grand Junction Tigers.
