Sailors boys soccer drops season opener
LAFAYETTE — The Steamboat Springs High School boys soccer team lost its season opener on the road to Centaurus, 3-1, on Saturday afternoon.
Centaurus jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first half.
With seven minutes to go, Charlie Reisman sent a free kick toward a teammate, who headed the ball into the net. The game was tied at one.
With three minutes to go, the Warriors startled Steamboat with a goal and did the same in the final minute.
Despite the loss, head coach Rob Bohlman was happy with how his team played for most of the match.

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
“We knew this was going to be a really good measurement for us all the way around, technically, tactically, emotionally, and it challenged us every way,” Bohlman said. “We were very competitive, and the guys worked extremely hard.”
“We’ll be focusing in on how we can bring more composure into the chaos when the game is frantic and competitive, and the other team is giving you very little time and space on the ball,“ he added.
The team plays Friday at the Arapahoe Tournament.
