CRMS shocks Basalt soccer team, 2-1
September 10, 2013
Colorado Rocky Mountain School scored two first-half goals and then held off the charging Basalt Longhorns, 2-1, in boys soccer on Tuesday afternoon.
"A team like that is always hungry to beat the big guns," Basalt head coach Brent Hayes said after Tuesday's loss. "Basically, they finished and we didn't."
He said CRMS had two good scoring chances in the first half, converting both into goals.
"We came back and scored to pull close," Hayes said. "And we had a couple of chances to score again. We created some things."
But, he said, the Longhorns started slowly against CRMS. That gave CRMS momentum and a two-goal lead.
Basalt moved to 3-2-0 with the Tuesday afternoon loss.
