GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Eagle Valley soccer mounted an impressive comeback Tuesday night in Glenwood Springs, but fell to the host Demons, 4-2.
The Devils trailed, 2-0, after 15 minutes, but showed a lot of character by rallying. In the 34th minute, Eagle Valley’s David Ortiz lasered his shot from outside the 18 into the corner. Aldo Palacios got the equalizer on a set piece from Aaron Ledezma.
Unfortunately for Eagle Valley, the Demons capitalized on two Devils’ mistakes and won the league contest.
“It was a tough game,” Eagle Valley coach Bratzo Horruitiner said. “When we came back, everyone was really excited. I thought we had a good shot. But it’s too tough to come back from two mistakes.”
Eagle Valley (1-3 overall and 1-2 in the 4A Slope) is at Rifle on Thursday.
