Vail Valley Preps wrap for Tuesday
GRAND JUNCTION – There will be no undefeated season.
OK, that probably wasn’t likely anyway, so Battle Mountain boys lacrosse suffered its first loss of the season Tuesday, 8-5, at Grand Junction.
Josh Rosenbach had two goals for the Huskies, while Parke Robbins, Reeve Sanders and Chris Libertini each scored once.
“I definitely think we learned a lot about our young team,” Huskies coach Seth Jones said. “We were a bit flat, but we got better every quarter.”
Battle Mountain (1-1) hosts Aspen Friday at 4 p.m.
Fruita Monument 16, Eagle Valley 2
GYPSUM – Eagle Valley boys lacrosse made some steps Tuesday in a 16-2 loss to Fruita Monument.
The Devils got goalie Bryce Steggall back in net, for starters. Eagle Valley also got goals from Kyle Newborn and Otto Jordan.
“We got some energy in the second half,” Devils coach Ted Boddy said. “The team played a strong second half. Bryce was back in goal, and he saw a lot of shots, but he played well.”
The Devils (0-2) host Glenwood Springs Thursday at 4 p.m. at the Gypsum Sports Complex.
Roaring Fork 1, Vail Mountain 0
EAST VAIL – Vail Mountain school girls soccer opened 3A Slope play with a 1-0 loss to Roaring Fork Tuesday at storied Bandoni Alumni Field.
Transitioning from skiing season, the Gore Rangers are still missing a few parts, but played well overall.
“It early,” VMS coach Bob Bandoni said. “We really dominated the run of play and our possession was good. We seemed to lack an urgency in the finial third. We had some breakaways and some nice opportunities from the flanks, but could not finish.”
VMS (0-2) heads to Aspen Thursday
Grand Valley 3, Vail Christian 0
PARACHUTE – Vail Christian girls soccer at least avoided swimming on Tuesday.
After a 6-0 loss at Freedom Park Monday, when conditions were better suited for the 100-meter butterfly, the Saints got on some dry land, but still fell at Grand Valley, 3-0, Tuesday.
“The girls played hard,” Vail Christian coach Barbara Wilson said. “They just figuring out how to play three varsity games on Friday, Monday and Tuesday. It was sort of a league practice with us not having much time playing 11-on-11.”
Vail Christian is 1-2 in the 3A Slope and heads into spring break before hosting Aspen March 29.
