DHS boys soccer kicks the No. 1

Demons topple 1st-place Indians in a game ‘with relentless action’

A big, dramatic victory may have been just what the doctor ordered for the Durango High School boys soccer team.

DHS broke through in overtime in a high-scoring affair, potting a golden goal to beat Montrose 4-3 on Friday at Riverview Sports Complex.

Montrose entered the game in first place in the Southwestern League, but DHS was able to maintain the momentum from Tuesday’s victory over Montezuma-Cortez and grab a key league victory, handing the Indians (6-5-1, 5-1-1 SWL) their first league loss in the process.

“It was a game with relentless action, to say the least,” DHS head coach Kenny Wood said via text message. “The boys played great.”

Ian Bowers provided the winner on a free kick from about 30 yards out. Cameron Treeharne scored twice in regulation, and Nick Aggeler provided the other regulation goal for Durango (7-2-3, 4-2-1 SWL).

The Demons will take the pitch at 11 a.m. today on Senior Day against Grand Junction at Riverview Sports Complex.
