Vail Valley preps wrap for Tuesday

EAST VAIL– Could we please get some more home games?

“We’re 2-0 at home,” VMS volleyball coach Mike Garvey said Tuesday after his team won in four sets against Basalt. “We just need to have more home games.”

Who’s to argue with a 25-15, 25-23, 16-25, 25-22 decision against the Longhorns? VMS moved to 5-7 with the win.

Without Hannah McKeever, who is out with a concussion, VMS continues to play with an improvised lineup, but there is a positive side to all of this.

“Sierra Brill played opposite of Monika Gehl,” Garvey said. “We had two outside-right hitters playing at the same time with Lizzie Pancratz and Erica Charles, so that was a little unconventional. We were joking with the girls that we used this lineup for the third-straight match, so we’re getting used to it.

VMS is at Meeker Saturday.


Devils fall in OT

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – What is it going to take for Eagle Valley soccer to win an overtime game?

“That’s my question too,” Devils coach Jason Rittmiler said.

The Devils lost to Glenwood Springs, 3-2, in overtime Tuesday, dropping their league mark to 1-4. Three of those four losses have come in extra time.

“We had chances. We got so close,” Rittmiller said. “They just happened to be the ones who got it.”

Edgar Nunez nearly got the game-winner for Eagle Valley in OT, but was denied. Giovanni Novella and Nestor Escobar scored in regulation for the Devils.

The Devils are at Aspen Thursday.
