Devils soccer falls at Palisade; other games snowed out

PALISADE — Some days go better than others.

Eagle Valley soccer’s trip to Palisade on Tuesday fell into the latter category as the Bulldogs came away with a 4-0 Slope win.

“We played until the end,” Devils coach Maggie Sherman said. “It’s not like we gave up. Their continual pressure was able to wear us down. The good news was the girls were saying, ‘Let’s keep going. Let’s get one.’ I’m happy with that attitude. It’s one of those where it’s over and done and we look to Thursday.”

Thursday would be Battle Mountain at Eagle Valley at John Ramunno Field at 6 p.m.

Eagle Valley (3-3-1) was on the wrong end of a 5-0 decision during Round 1 between the two teams last month.

“I think we know that to expect,” Sherman said. “The girls have a better understanding of what Battle Mountain is capable.”

Snow mangles schedule

Battle Mountain lacrosse got snowed out for third time this season on Tuesday, not that anyone is counting.

Tuesday’s snow postponed the Huskies’ tilt against Valor Christian. In fairness to the Eagles, Interstate 70 was a mess all day. No makeup date has been announced. Huskies lacrosse also has games with Glenwood Springs and Conifer to try again.

Vail Mountain soccer against Front Range Christian suffered the same fate as Battle Mountain boys lacrosse. The Falcons got caught in the Interstate 70 morass.

And Battle Mountain baseball against Summit appears to be displeasing the weather gods. Tuesday was already a makeup of a makeup. The two teams will hope the third time is a charm.

Battle Mountain baseball did notch a 6-4 comeback win against Basalt on Monday. In other action, Eagle Valley boys lacrosse fell to Conifer, 15-4 on Monday.
