Columbine pulls off 2-0 win against Ralston Valley

Columbine vs Ralston Valley girls soccer

It came down to the end, but the No. 7 Columbine Rebels found a way to win against the Ralston Valley Mustangs in the second half. 

The Rebels 7-3 and the Mustangs 7-2 this season, were both ready for a competitive match. There would be no blowouts in this game. 

Both teams got chances on net in the first half; however, both goalkeepers were solid, keeping this one nil-nil after the first half of play. 

Into the second, the Rebels' pushed the pressure on offense, sophomore, forward Tessa Barton would send one over the goal on a wide-open shot in the box and junior, forward Skylar Alward would ring one off the crossbar on a shot from just outside. 

Barton would get a second chance a little less than midway through the second half, sending in a rebound after a cross into the box for the 1-0 lead. 

Soon after, not sitting back, senior Amanda Porter would find herself with a shot in the top of the slot. Porter would go bar-down for the second tally of the game and the goal that sealed the Rebels victory.

At first the crowd had thought the shot went off the crossbar and out, but referees confirmed it was a goal and the Rebels lead 2-0. 

The No. 7 ranked Columbine Rebels are now 5-0 in league play and will face the Liberty Lancers on Saturday, April 22.
