Devils bow in Glenwood

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Eagle Valley soccer achieved a moral victory of sorts in 7-1 loss at Glenwood Springs Thursday.

After falling at home, 11-0, to the Demons earlier in the season, the Devils got on the board on a Megan Cochrane goal and possessed the ball well against playoff-bound Glenwood.

“They played the whole game as if it were 1-1, instead of 7-1,” Devils coach Francois Nanin said. “We controlled the ball for the first time this year against a playoff team. They played unbelievable.”

Eagle Valley heads to Moffat County Saturday for a rematch with the Bulldogs. Eagle Valley and Moffat County played to a draw last month in Gypsum.
