Aspen girls soccer beats Rangely

RANGELY, Colo. – The Aspen High School girls soccer team made the long trip to Rangely on Wednesday afternoon, harvesting a 12-0 victory over the upstart Panthers.

“I was pleased with the way we showed some compassion,” Aspen head coach John Gillies said. “We passed the ball around and around.”

With the Rangely program in a building stage, the Panthers have yet to score a goal this season, let alone win a match.

“Rangely had great spirit. They are a young team,” Gillies said of the Panthers, with a roster of only 14 players.

“We were willing to stop at 10 (goals). But they wanted to play more to get experience,” Gillies said.

The Skiers played shorthanded to help offset the difference in the second half, he said.

A variety of Skiers scored goals Wednesday afternoon, led by Annabelle Wilcox, who scored three times.

Katherine Milette scored a goal, as did Katrina Klawiter. Shannon Waititi added a goal.

Several players from the junior varsity team also scored with Gillies resting his starters.

“The younger players all got good playing time,”Gillies said.

The Aspen girls, 4-1-2 overall, will play at Colorado Rocky Mountain School in Carbondale at 4 p.m. Thursday.

Rangely fell to 0-6-0 with Wednesday’s loss.
