Courtney Coffey, 12, of Fruita Monument scores the second of her two goals, slipping the ball past Grand Junction goalie Guadalupe Torres on Thursday night in Fruita’s 6-3 win at Walker Field.

Bend it like Benton

Well-placed corner kick lifts Fruita past GJ

Sarah Benton’s corner kicks don’t always go where she wants them to, but this one did.
This time it went into the net.
Holding a 4-3 lead in the second half, the Fruita Monument junior whipped a corner kick from the left side, bending it right into the box cluttered with players, and then into the net.
The Wildcats went on to a hard-fought 6-3 Southwestern League girls soccer win over Grand Junction on Thursday at Walker Field.
“Typically, those corner kicks on that side usually go out because they curve so much,” Benton said with a laugh. “But every once in a while, I’ve got them to go in.”
