A tale of two halves ended well for the Durango High School girls soccer team.
"It was a rough first half," Demons coach Aaron Eldridge said. "We played way too direct, not trying to connect with each other. We just chipped the ball over the defense and chased it."
The second was dominating.
"Our performance was, especially in the second half, just not the score," Eldridge said.
Durango defeated Fruita Monument 2-0 on Friday in Grand Junction.
"Fruita maybe crossed over midfield twice in the second half," Eldridge said.
Katerina Garcia scored the game-winner in the 66th minute.
"The ball was played in to her, but she created the opportunity for herself," Eldridge said.
Garcia scored left-footed to the near post for a 1-0 lead.
Meghan O'Brien assisted Garcia's second goal in the 79th minute.
"It was played in to Meghan, who was kind of like a post player," Eldridge said. "She found Kat behind the defense, and Kat scored on a low shot inside the far post."
Durango (4-3 overall, 2-0 Southwestern League) will play at Montrose at 11 a.m. today.
"I expect Montrose to be tough," Eldridge said. "If we get a win there, then we're sitting very pretty."
