Steamboat girls soccer bounces back against Delta
April 14, 2012
Steamboat Springs — A day after playing one of its worst games of the year, the Steamboat Springs girls soccer team bounced back Saturday, picking up a 3-0 win at Delta.
"It was good from the standpoint we were able to go in and make things better versus making things worse before they got better," Steamboat coach Rob Bohlmann said.
Bohlmann, who called the way Steamboat played in a 3-0 loss Friday to Palisade not acceptable, said that on Saturday, things started to get better.
It started early in the first when Kelbi Rogers took a cross from Alice Holmquist to give the Sailors a 1-0 lead.
Later in the first, Tatum Sear took another cross from Holmquist to make it 2-0 at half.
Sear added another goal in the second half for the final result.
"It definitely was an improvement," Bohlmann said. "We don't walk away and say this was a fantastic game. But we leave feeling better."
Steamboat (9-2-1 overall, 6-2-1 in Western Slope League) now prepares for a huge game at Glenwood Springs.
The two teams originally were scheduled to play Tuesday, but the game was switched to 6 p.m. Thursday.
Glenwood leads the league, but Steamboat probably should have won the first meeting. The Sailors had a 2-0 lead in the first half and then gave up a goal in stoppage time to settle for a 3-all tie.
