Pagosa Springs answers Bobcats’ pressure

The Bobcats put on the pressure, but Pagosa Springs answered.

The Ignacio High School girls soccer team lost a 4-0 decision to Pagosa Springs on a snowy Saturday in Ignacio.

“We had three or four really good scoring opportunities,” IHS head coach Andrew Fenity said. “The girls did a great job of using what we had worked on in practice.”

Fenity said the Bobcats’ offense attacked with efficient diagonal runs.

“The girls did quite well,” he said after the Bobcats allowed two goals in the first half and two in the second.

Defender Jasmine Red played a “great game” against Pagosa Springs, Fenity said.

“She played smart; she held her ground,” he said.

Abeth Okall had a solid midfield game, the Ignacio coach said.

Destinee Lucero and Carly Barborinas also had outstanding games, he said.

“It was a little frustrating, but the girls played with heart even four goals down,” Fenity said.

“I’m definitely pleased with our progress.”

On Friday, the Bobcats lost 8-0 at Ridgway when goalkeeper Nicole Williams suffered an ankle injury and had to leave early in the match. She returned to play Saturday.

The Bobcats (1-5-0) will play a nonconference match at 4 p.m. Tuesday at Wolverine Country Stadium at Bayfield High School.
