The Aspen High School girls soccer team found a way to beat the cold weather Thursday.

The Skiers turned to a red-hot offense, bolstered by successful set pieces, to score a 4-0 victory over visiting Colorado Rocky Mountain School from Carbondale.

“It was nice for the team to get a win before … another break,” Aspen head coach John Gillies said as the Skiers prepare to head out on a week of experiential education next week.

He said the Skiers scored first on a well-orchestrated corner kick with Melody Lemke converting the goal.

Mackenzie Langley scored on a shot from the edge of the box to give the Aspen girls a 2-0 halftime lead.

In the second half, Aspen scored on another corner kick when Erin Spence headed the ball into CRMS net.

Lindzhi Douglass added Aspen’s final goal.

“That was a well-struck shot,” Gillies said of Douglass’ score.

The Skiers improved to 3-3-1 with Thursday’s victory.

“We dominated the game,” Gillies said. “The defense was organized.

“Overall, it was a good victory for us,” the Aspen head coach said.

The Skiers will break for a week of experiential eduction next week.

The next game for the Aspen High School soccer team will be April 15 against Rangely. That match will be played in Grand Junction.
