Steamboat girls soccer easily beats Delta, 8-1

— It’s a big weekend for the Steamboat Springs High School girls soccer team, not so much because the competition is fierce, but because the Sailors remember how last year went.

Early season points against non-league competition matter big time in the long run and proved to be a major factor in Steamboat being left out of the 2014 state playoffs.

On Friday, the Sailors trounced league foe Delta, 8-1, and now look forward to one of those non-league contests against Montezuma-Cortez Saturday.

“The approach we’ll take is we’re playing for playoff points here,” Steamboat coach Rob Bohlmann said. “However, you break down last year, you can look at those non-league games and those were the difference makers for us not making the state playoffs.”

Playing on a much smaller grass field in Delta, the Sailors got a hat trick out of junior Natalie Bohlmann, while Jordi Floyd, Megan Williams, Brooke Buchanan, Mackenzie Gansman and Ellese Lupori each tacked on goals for the 8-1 drubbing. The Panthers didn’t get on the board until there were two minutes remaining in the game.

Steamboat (5-1 overall, 5-1 Western Slope League) will stay on that tiny field Saturday for a neutral-site game against Montezuma-Cortez. The Panthers haven’t won a game or scored a goal this spring.

The game kicks off at 11 a.m.
