Steamboat Springs The Steamboat Springs soccer team came up short Friday night in Glenwood Springs, losing its first conference game of the season to the Demons, 2-1.
"We couldn't buy a goal in the game," assistant coach Chris Kerlin. "We played well. But we just couldn't score when we needed to."
The Sailors only score in the game came from Mike Rinn. Glenwood netted two goals, however, and won the game 2-1.
Steamboat rebounded in a big way Saturday with a 6-1 win over Aspen in Aspen.
The Sailors took a 4-0 lead in the first half behind two scores from Jason Sirois. Steamboat's Jason Flower and Kyle Nelson also added scores in the first half.
Aspen scored its only goal of the game early in the second half, but additional goals from Steamboat's Rinn and Zach Murphy secured the Steamboat advantage.
Andrew Litzau played the entire game against Glenwood in goal and finished with 10 saves. He also had nine saves in the final 40 minutes of Saturday's game against Aspen. Chris Gibson started the Aspen game and had nine saves in the first half.
The Sailors are now 6-2-1 for the season and 3-1 in conference play. Steamboat will host Moffat County Thursday night in another key conference matchup.
The varsity teams will take Dudley Field at 4 p.m. and the junior varsity will follow at 6 p.m.
The junior varsity team picked up two wins last weekend with a 2-0 win over Glenwood Friday and a 5-1 win over Aspen Saturday.
Justin John scored two goals in the Glenwood game after getting assists from Derrick Lewis and Daniel Barney.
Against Aspen, Zach Klohr and Todd Bell both had two goals each. Kelly Carlson netted the other Steamboat goal in the contest.
