CARBONDALE – The Aspen High School girls soccer team is still perfect on defense – no goals allowed in two games.

However, the Skiers also have yet to score a goal in two games.

The Aspen girls played to a 0-0 tie at Roaring Fork High School in Carbondale on Saturday.

“It was one of those games that was back-and-forth,” Aspen head coach John Gillies said, adding that it was the Skiers’ first game on grass this season.

“The first 20 minutes, we played great,” Gillies said. “Then, when the legs got heavy, we lost some concentration.”

But, he said, the Skiers remained solid on defense.

“We don’t look like we’re going to concede any goals, either,” Gillies said.

He said the Aspen offense will pick up some momentum when injured players return to the roster after spring break.

Aspen goalkeeper Sally McGuren was tested with a number of good shots from Roaring Fork, Gillies said.

“Sally was sharp as she always is,” Gillies said. “She came off her line when she needed to. She’s very confident.”

The Skiers opened the season with a 0-0 home tie against Basalt last week.

The Aspen girls will be back on the pitch Tuesday for a game against Coal Ridge.

On Thursday, the Skiers will play at Colorado Rocky Mountain School in Carbondale, their final game before spring break 2013.
