Demons’ O can’t keep up with their D in defeat

DHS girls lacrosse loses its inaugural playoff game
Durango High School senior goalie Alyssa Spencer and senior attacker Siena Gumbiner, holding sister Pearl Burbey, led a much-improved program of firsts through the postgame handshake line Wednesday at DHS Stadium. The Mountain League champions and first-time playoff performers lost 7-3 to Ralston Valley.
Try as Jessie Ransford and the Durango Demons might, they struggled to force Kristen Luthy and Ralston Valley to turn the ball over in the Mustangs’ 7-3 playoff victory Wednesday at DHS Stadium. “Stick sklls,” DHS head coach Jenni Darlow said. “They have the best stick skills of any team we’ve played.”
After more than 30 minutes without a goal, Durango’s Siena Gumbiner spun around Ralston Valley’s Karina Zurita and scored past Nicole Schafer in the second half of the Demons’ 7-3 loss to the Mustangs. “The light started to go out a little,” Gumbiner said about the five-goal deficit.
Even though her two goals weren’t enough to save the Demons from elimination in the first round of their inaugural playoff appearence, Siena Gumbiner said she’s “totally happy” with their 10-3 season and the program’s first-ever Mountain League championship and playoff berth.
Ralston Valley’s Jenny Adams entered Wednesday’s playoff game at Durango as the team’s leading scorer with 51 goals. She scored four of the Mustangs’ seven in their four-goal victory.
