The Bayfield High School girls soccer team scored twice in the first half to take down Alamosa 2-0 on Saturday on the road.
The Wolverines (2-4, 1-1 3A/2A Southwestern League) got on the board in the 13th minute when senior Peri Milner found the back of the net. Sarah Ruybal came up for a corner kick and got her head on it and scored to make it 2-0 in the 37th minute.
“It’s always good to get scoring in a variety of ways, but that set-piece goal just before the half was big,” said BHS head coach Jen Moore. “At this point, we’re just trying to turn our season around. We’ve had a few hurdles with several players missing several games, so we got three of those players back today and they made a difference.”
Alamosa (1-6, 1-2 SWL) was kept off of the scoreboard by stout Bayfield defense. Bayfield will take on Center (0-6, 0-6 SWL) at 4 p.m. Tuesday at BHS.

Girls LacrosseThe Durango High School girls lacrosse team split its weekend road trip after it won 9-4 against Palmer on Friday but lost 23-1 to Palmer Ridge on Saturday.
On Friday, Kiara Valley scored seven goals and added an assist, while Autumn Rymerson and Tori Raybourn each had a goal.
“I was super proud of their effort on Friday against a really physical Palmer team,” said DHS head coach Natalie Mitchell. “One thing I’ve realized is that the more high-intensity type of game it is, the better they tend to respond. They kept their composure and were really good offensively.”
It was a different story Saturday in the loss, as Palmer Ridge was able to break the DHS defense down. Statistics were not made available. Mitchell said her team fought hard, but it was a tough ask after the physical battle from the night before.
“We got pretty beat up yesterday, and they were just a really good team; super solid across the board, especially with their stick skills,” Mitchell said.
Durango (4-4, 3-2 Mountain League) will take on Eagle Valley (1-4, 1-4 ML) at 4 p.m. April 26 in Gypsum.
