Eagle Valley High School
Eagle Devils at home against Rifle Bears turned out to be the most exciting game of the season so far.
The first half was dead even both teams sharing the attack and control of the game. Devils would mount an attack and Bears would defend and then control and mount there own attack. This happened until around the 35 minute mark when the Bear’s outside midfielders were able to put one away. Cesar Gutierrez was given a nice through ball to which he took straight to goal, and took a shot, the Devils goal keeper coming out made a great save but couldn’t handle it, but Paul Cerros was there crashing the net and put it back on goal again low and to the corner for the first and only goal that would be scored this game.
The second half was all defense, Eagle gave it everything, but Bears held strong. Defense was lead by Alberto Dominguez and Andres Guerrero as well as solid goal tending by Alexis Jimenez. This win puts bears 2-4-0 in league.
