Aspen girls try to get sand out

Aspen Times writer

Suffering from another spring-break hangover, the Aspen High girls soccer team lost its first game back from vacation 4-1 at Roaring Fork last Thursday.

Aspen freshman Taylor Buzbee scored the Skiers’ only goal on a penalty kick late in the second half. After falling behind 1-0 in the first half, “we just got tired in the second half,” said Aspen coach John Gillies.

“We just weren’t fit enough coming back from a 10-day break. … I think it reflects that the girls were still on the beach in Mexico. Same thing every year.”



Aspen dropped to 1-1 in Class 3A Western Slope League play and 1-5 overall.

On Saturday, Aspen’s scheduled game at Eagle Valley was postponed due to hail. This Tuesday, Aspen travels to Carbondale to face CRMS.




“Hopefully, this is a valuable lesson for the girls to learn,” said Gillies. “But you know, I think they’ll bounce back. They came off the field humiliated and sad [last Thursday], and it’ll be a good judge of character to see how they respond.”

“We just weren’t fit enough coming back from a 10-day break.”
