Déjà vu all over again

Hatch, Olguin team up again to help Fruita tie GJ for 2nd time in one month

Roughly one month ago, when the Fruita Monument High School boys soccer team faced Grand Junction, Stephen Hatch found Kaed Olguin during the opening minutes on a free kick. Olguin reached the ball as it curled toward the back post, heading it past the keeper. That game ended in a 1-1 draw.
The Wildcats waited a little longer Wednesday night at Walker Field, but still secured a 1-1 draw in the Southwestern League match.
Taking a free kick from nearly the exact same spot during stoppage time in the second half, Hatch looped a free kick that Olguin turned onto the frame with his head for the late equalizer.
