Montrose snaps four-game skid with victory over Central

The Montrose High School girls soccer team scored a goal in the first half and made it hold up in a 1-0 win over Central on Thursday at Long Family Park.

The Indians (4-7, 1-4 Southwestern League) dominated possession for much of the first half and took the lead on Macy Gurule’s goal.

With wind picking up in the second half, Montrose again controlled possession for large portions of the second half.

In the final 10 minutes Central (5-6, 1-3 SWL) took over and started pressuring the Indians.

Central goalkeeper Nikki Madaris came out of goal to take a free kick from about 35 yards out. Her kick, a hard liner at the right post, was deflected out of bounds and that led to the first of three corner kicks for the Warriors.

Rylea Rottman made a nice centering pass but the ball sailed through without the Warriors getting off a shot.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak for Montrose.
