Sailors take tough loss against Huskies

By Chris Freud

EDWARDS — Did you expect anything less?

In the first state-playoff meeting between the longtime rivals — be it fall or spring — Battle Mountain girls soccer outlasted Steamboat Springs, 3-2, on a Logan Nash golden goal with 7:08 left in the second overtime of their second-round game on Saturday in Edwards.

The Huskies took a 2-0 lead in the first half, and had the Sailors reeling. Steamboat rallied in the second half with two of its own and Battle Mountain was on its heels. Were it not for Nash, these two teams might still be playing.

“It was beyond a storybook,” Huskies senior midfielder Acacia Ortiz said. “I don’t even have words for it. You always imagine what a moment would be like, and this was even better what we all thought.”
