EDWARDS — You can’t stop Vail Christian soccer. You can only hope to contain it.

The Saints made it three in a row by downing Rangely, 3-1, at Battle Mountain on Saturday.

“Three wins in a week,” Saints coach Barbara Wilson said. “That might be a record for us.”

If it isn’t, then it’s pretty close. Vail Christian won only four games last year.

Britney Bossow opened up the scoring against the Panthers.

“Both sisters are scoring for us,” Wilson joked.

That’s because Abby Bossow had a goal in the team’s 2-0 win against Rocky Mountain Lutheran on Friday.

Playing on ‘Big Field’

After Rangely equalized, the Saints scored on a set piece — a Susan VanDerveer corner to Jessie Raitt. Miss Raitt added some insurance later in the game as Vail Christian moved to 3-4.

“Playing at Battle Mountain was big field for us,” Wilson said. “I feel like the girls adjusted well and used the space well to move the ball and maintain possession.”

The Saints continue their sprint of a season on Tuesday with a road game at Moffat County.
