On the season, Montrose scores less than two goals per second half. So when the Indians went into halftime down two goals to CHSAANow.com’s No. 5-ranked Durango, things looked dire.
But stats are for suckers.
No. 10 Montrose (5-2-1 overall, 0-1-1 Southwest League) rallied, scoring two goals in the second half while shutting the Demons (6-1-1, 2-1-1) down. The game ended in a 3-3, a fitting end for a battle of top 10 teams in the state.
After starting the season with six straight wins, the Demons are now winless in their last two contests. A loss to Grand Junction and the tie to Montrose are the only two blemishes on their record. Durango will have another chance at each team, facing Junction on Oct. 7 and Montrose on Oct. 14. Both games will be at home.
Montrose is still in search of its first league win. Its next chance comes on Saturday when it hosts Grand Junction Central.
