The Tigers came out on top, 3-2, and are now 7-3 this season.

"Playing in Montrsoe is always a challenge," Grand Junction caoch Joseph Graham said. "Their team plays with a lot of pride and plays hard until the end. The Montrose goalie made multiple great saves in the first half to keep us out of the back of the net."

Grand Junction took a 1-0 lead in the first half on a goal by Dannon Yake, which was assisted by Dolcie Hanlon.

Montrose equalized when Josie Coulter scored from an assist by Caroline Graham.

Montrose is now 8-3 this season following the loss.

"We played hard the whole game and had a lot of dangerous opportunities, but had a hard time finding the back of the net," Montrose coach Cassie Snyder said. "We have made growth every day and we intend to continue to grow. We will learn from this loss and be better the next time we play Grand Junction."
