The Demons left the Durango cold around 8 a.m. Friday, and they arrived to overcast Pueblo skies but 60-degree weather.
Pueblo South, however, came out hot.
The Colts scored a goal in their first trip into the Demons defensive zone their first opportunity in the attacking third, Durango High School girls soccer coach Aaron Eldridge said.
The game was pretty much a stalemate the rest of the first half, Eldridge said.
Durango scored the equalizer, then the game-winner in the second half for a 2-1 nonconference victory.
They came out with good possession, and we came out flat, Eldridge said.
They warmed up.
Brooke Milliet finished Emily Barneys cross to goal for a 1-1 game early in the second half, then Milliets long throw-in reached Stephanie Ogier, who fed the ball into the goalie box, and Raquel Delgado finished it for a 2-1 game late in the second half.
It was a really physical match, said Eldridge, who credited central defender Amanda Urban for her defense on a particular 6-foot skilled striker who assisted on the Colts goal.
She really stepped up and played a physical opponent, he said of Urban.
The whole team played well.
Pueblo South applied a lot of pressure late, but Karlee Mulkey made a couple of good saves to preserve the win, Eldridge said.
Durango (5-2-1) will play Pueblo West at 11 a.m. today.
