The Basalt High School girls soccer team continued its winning ways on Saturday, going on the road to beat Delta in double overtime, 1-0.

Sophomore Sarah Levy scored the game’s only goal on a penalty kick in the second overtime period.

The win improved Basalt’s record to 5-1 overall. Already more than halfway through their pandemic-shortened 10-game regular season, BHS has played six games in only 12 days. The Longhorns will now have a few days off before hosting Aspen on Thursday.

“To come away with a 5-1 record is a great feat,” BHS coach Brent Hayes wrote in a text. “I can’t imagine there’s been a more brutal schedule in girls soccer, possibly ever, than that. Looking forward to some needed days off before facing Aspen.”

The Skiers remain 1-0-1 overall after not playing this weekend. AHS also is off until Thursday’s game with Basalt.

Basalt, Aspen baseball teams both swept

Saturday was a rough day for local baseball teams.

Aspen High School hosted Moffat County in a doubleheader at Crawford Field, losing 10-2 and 10-0. The Bulldogs are a perfect 5-0 so far this spring, while the Skiers fell to 0-5 overall.

AHS will next face off against Coal Ridge on Wednesday.

Basalt baseball hosted Gunnison on Saturday, losing 10-9 and 17-7 in the doubleheader. The Cowboys improved to 6-0, while BHS fell to 1-2, the win coming last week in 11 innings over Aspen.

Basalt will next play current No. 8 Delta on Tuesday.

Aspen boys lacrosse falls twice on road trip

Aspen, now 0-4, is off until Wednesday in a rematch against the Huskies.

The Aspen girls lacrosse team did not play this past weekend. Currently 2-0, the girls are now scheduled to host Roaring Fork on Monday evening.
