Devils lax beats Huskies again

GYPSUM – For some reason, Eagle Valley girls lacrosse did not play Battle Mountain Wednesday. What’s up with that?

The Devils beat the Huskies, 10-7, in their regularly-scheduled second match of the season Monday in Edwards. With Telluride not fielding a team this spring, the two teams went at it again Tuesday in Gypsum with Eagle Valley winning again, 13-5.

For some reason, the two teams didn’t play Wednesday.

“We could play Battle Mountain after Steamboat Springs,” Devils coach Kim Andree joked.

The Devils (4-8) host the Sailors at 5 at Hot Stuff Stadium for Senior Night tonight, but there will be no varsity doubleheader.

The good news in the Eagle Valley camp is that the Devils won the season series against their archrivals, 2-1, after dropping an early-season decision to the Huskies.

“At the beginning of the season, we had some players out because of how it is at the beginning of the season,” Andree said. “At the end of the season, (Battle Mountain) was missing two players they rely on. It’s tough for both teams, but we’ve both worked hard this season. It’s great for us to be going into the Steamboat game, especially after two wins in a row.”

Tonight is not only an important game, but it’s also a time to salute Eagle Valley’s seven seniors. They are Cori Cramer, Andrea Meza, Haley Hutton, Gina and Stephanie Johnson, Madison Vaughn, Colby Glissman and Alyssa Hosman.

Huskies soccer beats Moffat

CRAIG – Battle Mountain soccer finished up the regular season on a high note, blitzing Moffat County, 6-1, Wednesday afternoon.

The Huskies finish the season at 10-4-1 overall and 8-3-1 in the 4A Slope. As big as beating Steamboat Springs Tuesday night, Huskies coach David Cope said that getting a 10th win would be important for seeding in the state tournament, which starts Tuesday.

Battle Mountain hopes to be ranked in the top 16 of the bracket in order to be home for the first round. The bracket comes out Sunday on chsaa.org.
