ARVADA – Sometimes it takes one perfect pass with the same perfect advice to decide the outcome on the football field.
Golden Skye Brion top scorer delivered the perfect cross to Sophia Nickel for the second time in the 52nd minute which led to one point on Monday night at the North Area Athletic Complex.
“That sounded great. It worked well, ”Brion said of his help with Nickel articles. “I hit the guard, I cut it off and Sophia finished it.”
The Demons defeated a rival Wheat Ridge 1-0 in a Class 4A girls’ soccer game of the Jeffco League.
That’s what he gets in games like this, ”said Wheat Ridge coach Dan Watkins with one point. Who can take advantage of opportunities that arise? Debt to Golden. Skye was clever outside tonight and managed to make those jumps. “
Watkins was delighted with the Wheat Ridge defensive line and high scorer Ariel Martin. It took one amazing game to break the ice and give the demons success.
Gold coach Larry Harding gave good instructions to his team after the first half without score. During the break, Harding told his team to create a pass area instead of getting an “impossible angle”.
“I told them to let your colleagues help you,” Harding said. “Return the ball to the top six (foot line). You (Brion) did it and we found the purpose. “
Nickel almost scored his second goal in the game in the final minutes, but his shot went wide to the point as time went on. Still, the demons will take a great victory over the Farmers. Soccer player Ella Harrison has had the opportunity to close the net.
“It builds us to be strong in every game,” Brion said of the victory over the main rival of the Demons early in the league.
Golden (4-1-1, 2-0) went to a strong conference that started with the closure of Conifer and Wheat Ridge to start the league game.
“Our girls have been working hard and it’s starting to look good,” said Harding. “There are things we can do better, but we will talk about those things tomorrow.”
Wheat Ridge (3-2, 0-1) will have a steep climb, but there are plenty of meaningful conference games left in the 10th 4A Jeffco League team.
“That’s Jeffco. It is always nighttime. There are some tough games you have to fight, ”said Watkins. “We were on the wrong end tonight, but we’re going to have a lot of games like that and we’ll find a way to win.”
The Golden and Wheat Ridge are actually both operating at Lakewood Memorial Field coming Thursday. The Demons face Alameda International in a 5 p.m. game and the Farmers follow suit with a league game against Bear Creek.
