Moffat County Sports produce mixed results Thursday

In addition to the football game Thursday night, other Moffat County fall sports were on display.

The boys soccer team lost in Steamboat Springs, 4-1. The Sailors scored two goals in each half, while Alan Flores scored on a penalty kick to supply the Bulldogs’ lone goal.

Moffat County was shorthanded in the game due to injuries and players missing because they were playing in the football game. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Bulldogs, who are now 4-7 this season.

Meanwhile, the Moffat County volleyball team was locked in another tight match, this time hosting Aspen in the MCHS gym.

After relinquishing an early lead in the first set, the Bulldogs regrouped and won the second and third. They would lose the fourth before once again winning in five sets, 22-25, 25-22, 25-19, 21-25, 15-9.

The win improved the volleyball team to 4-12 this year. It’s next game is Tuesday at Rifle High School.

Craig women’s hockey seeking members

The Puck Ewes women’s hockey team in Craig is looking for members to help fill its roster for the coming season.

The team, which plays in a league of teams from local cities, is short on players this year, and will have to drop out without more signups by the season’s start, team member Gayle Criswell said.

So Criswell and her teammates are looking for women of any ability level with an interest in playing or learning hockey. Criswell said they will take anyone ages 14 and up, but players younger than 18 would need parental consent to play.

The season starts in late October and goes through March, with game nights varying throughout.

The current members of the team have a limited amount of loaner hockey gear that would help cut costs for prospective new members.

For more information, call Criswell at 824-8048.

Water Aerobics courses available to walk-ins

Craig residents looking to get a different style of exercise are in luck, starting next month.

Registration is open for water aerobics courses, which will run from Oct. 22 through Jan. 16.

Water Aerobics offer a good combination of exercise benefits, improving fitness and flexibility while also being easier on the joints than other forms of exercise.

Classes will be Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-8 p.m. at Moffat County High School. The fee to drop-in for a class is $4, or to sign up for the entire session costs $50.

For more information, call 826-2017.
