Sports Briefs: Steamboat Springs High School soccer takes down No. 1 Centaurus High School
The Steamboat Springs High School boys soccer team upset No. 1 in Class 4A, Centaurus High School, 3-2 on its own turf Saturday, Sept. 8.
The Sailors trailed 2-1 in the first half, with senior Murphy Bohlmann scoring the first goal unassisted. Junior Kevin Kaster tied things up in the second half off an assist by senior Riley Moore 2-2. Moore set up one more goal by senior Quinn Connell to grab the win 3-2.
Junior Juan Campoverde finished the game with six saves in goal.
“The big part to the success was how organized the group was defensively,” head coach Rob Bohlmann said. “They did a nice job shutting down the counter attacks from their opponent.”
Soroco football defeats Justice
Senior Jace Logan ran for 292 yards on eight carries to carry the Soroco Rams in their 64-16 win over Justice High School. Logan accounted for six rushing touchdowns. Junior Jesse Koler, Sophomore Cody Logan and junior Tyler Wixom each added touchdowns. The team would run a collective 461 yards on 20 carries, and Wixom would complete two passes for 2-point conversions.
“Our passing game needs to step up and pass defense also,” head coach Dick Dudas said. “We bring those two things up, we’ll really be a force to be concerned with. Although, we might be getting to be. It surprises me last year after losing 13 kids, it’s a tribute to the kids’ hard work.”
