Steamboat soccer faces huge test

The Steamboat Springs High School soccer team took care of business Saturday, and now, one of the first major league tests of the season is on tap Tuesday.

The Sailors went on the road to beat Palisade, 7-0. Now, they’ll play at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Eagle Valley.

The Sailors and the Devils tied for second in the Western Slope League last year and split their head-to-head games, each squad winning on its home field.

Eagle Valley is off to a 2-1 start to this season after having lost its opener, 2-1, against Green Mountain from Lakewood. It bounced back with a huge double-overtime win against defending league champs Battle Mountain.

The Sailors, 3-1, may be fine in that matchup if they can score as efficiently Tuesday as they did Saturday. The team racked up three first-half goals and topped that in the second, with four more.

Senior Cruz Archuleta had three. Sophomore Murphy Bohlmann had two, and junior Jake Berry and senior Lane Sayler had one each. Ross VanHara had three assists, while Ben Anderson, Quinn Connell and Will McConnell each had one.
