Grand Valley blanks Central soccer team

Central took more shots, but Grand Valley was the team putting them in the net as the Cardinals defeated the Warriors 2-0 in nonleague girls soccer Tuesday at Grand Valley.

Lauren Paskett scored during the 17th minute, Hanna Cornelius scored in the 38th minute for Grand Valley (6-1), and goalkeeper Desi McGee made five saves to post the shutout.

“We put a lot of pressure on and took a lot of shots. We just couldn’t find the back of the net,” Central coach Jacob Pingel said.

Goalie Marisa Brown made four saves for the Warriors(1-6-1).


Delta used a hot offense to put away Steamboat Springs 21-7 in five innings.

Braving the cold temperatures, Delta’s Tyler Sandoval drove in five runs, going 3 for 3. Derek Horn had two RBI for the Panthers.

Delta (8-2) took an 8-3 lead after two innings, then used an eight-run fourth to pull away from the Sailors.

I I think ALL of these games should have been postponed. The kids, coached, and officials had no business being outside in Tuesday’s weather.
