Eagle Valley Cyclone wins soccer title
The Eagle Valley Cyclone U-13 boys team won its final game over the Colorado Storm and moved into a tie for first place in the Classic Silver Division of the Colorado State League. The first place tie means that the team will advance to the Premier 2 division for the fall season. “I believe that these boys will be the first from this valley to play at the premier level at this age,” said Coach, Mike Shea. “It’s quite an accomplishment.”The Cyclone broke open a tight battle with the Storm with two second-half goals after taking a 10 lead in the first half. The Cyclone dominated the game early but could not get one by the Storm goalkeeper until halfway through the first half when David Shea was taken down from behind in the penalty area after a breakaway. Cesar Castillo scored the first of his two goals on the ensuing penalty kick for the 10 lead. The Storm dominated the early part of the second half, but the Cyclone took a 20 lead with 15 minutes to play when Bryan Matthew’s header off a beautiful corner kick from Tony Ryerson found the back of the net. Castillo iced the game with his second goal with seven minutes left in the game. The defense, led by goalkeeper, Sean Minett, and sweeper, Ruben Saucedo, did the rest. The team also had outstanding performances from defenders Will Foster, Dustin Ward and Cesar Corral and midfielders Hugo Parra, Eleazar Saucedo, and Jordy Coffey. Greg Flynn was unable to attend the final game but made a big contribution during the course of the season.
