The Durango High School girls soccer team won its third consecutive Southwestern League match to start conference play this season with a 4-0 victory at Montrose on Saturday.
The Demons controlled their third consecutive SWL shutout from start to finish.
Senior Kristi Gemperline put the Demons ahead in the fifth minute when she converted a penalty kick.
Three minutes later, senior Katerina Garcia scored the first of her two goals after taking a pass from Neely Surmeier.
"It was an attacking play, and Kat ran onto it ... and played it into the corner, low," DHS head coach Aaron Eldridge said.
Durango expanded the 2-0 halftime lead when Garcia scored again in the 54th minute. She faked the Montrose keeper and hit the net after working behind the Indians' defense.
DHS added a fourth goal when freshman Meghan O'Brien scored in the 60th minute.
"It was a great finish," Eldridge said, describing the sequence where O'Brien controlled a pass at her feet and went far post for the score.
Durango outshot Montrose 19-2 as the Demons improved to 5-3-0 overall, 3-0-0 in the SWL.
Defensively, Eldridge said the Demons were solid throughout.
Callie Morris started in goal.
Abby Surmeier finished the match in goal for the Demons.
"Abby had two big saves at the end," Eldridge said.
He said the Demons did a good job controlling the ball in Saturday's win, similar to their performance in the second half of Friday's 2-0 victory over Fruita Monument.
"In our last three halves of soccer, our possession has been exceptional," Eldridge said.
The Demons return to Durango to host their first two home matches of the season next weekend, both SWL soccer games.
DHS will take on Grand Junction at 5 p.m. Friday afternoon before hosting Grand Junction Central next Saturday.
"This is a great way to come into our home opener next weekend," Eldridge said.
"We've been on the road four weeks in a row."
