Basalt girls rout Roaring Fork 6-1
April 3, 2002
The Basalt High girls soccer team rebounded from a loss Saturday with a 6-1 win Tuesday over Carbondale’s Roaring Fork High.
Basalt junior Mariah Mulcahy paved the way with a hat trick, and sophomore Ashley Eaton netted one goal and added three assists.
Despite the score, Basalt and Roaring Fork entered the second half tied at 1-1, with seniors Molly McGrath and Stephanie Kemp sitting on the bench with injuries.
“In the first 20 minutes, Roaring Fork came out really strong, put it to us and scored the first goal,” said BHS coach Heather Walker. “But we played much better in the second.
“Our passing finally came together and we got to all the 50-50 balls first,” the coach continued.
Basalt sophomore Shannon Hutton and junior Samantha Hoffman added one goal apiece, while sophomore Megan Stewart had one assist. Sophomore goalie Autumn Caughern, playing her first season of soccer, recorded the win in net.
