Salida has been much better on the road than they've been at home this year. So having to travel to St. Mary's for the second round of the Class 3A boys soccer tournament wasn't a big deal.
Even if the Pirates had won the regular season meeting back on Sept. 9.
This time, it was the Spartans who came away victorious. Junior Camden Gillis scored in double-overtime to give Salida a stunning 1-0 win. Up next is a quarterfinal showdown with No. 3 Colorado Academy.
As the No. 27 seed in the tournament, Salida has now come away with two upset wins in the tournament, each time beating their higher ranked opponent by a single goal.
(12) Delta 3, (5) DSST-Stapleton 0
Delta had a good day on both sides of the ball. The offense put up three goals and keeper Felipe Bedoy didn't let anything by him as the Panthers advanced with a 3-0 win over DSST-Stapleton.
They'll see Colorado Springs Christian School in the quarterfinals on Saturday.
(23) Roaring Fork 2, (7) The Academy 0
Roaring Fork's improbable run in the 3A tournament continued Tuesday with a 2-0 win over the Academy.
A tall task looms on Saturday as the Rams must now face No. 2 Kent Denver.
