Golden vs. Arvada: Demons dominant in win over Bulldogs


ARVADA - It was a get-right game for one team and an everything-went-wrong game for the other.

Golden girls’ soccer beat up on Arvada 10-0 Wednesday at North Area Athletic Complex.

The Demons scored eight first half goals and then ended the game early when they scored two more goals early in the second half.

“We really needed a game like this,” Golden coach Josh Nolker said. “Everyone got involved and it was a real confidence and momentum builder going into (4A Jeffco) league play.”

Golden sophomore Katie Tubbs scored three goals and assisted on three more, and fellow sophomore Julianne Enquist scored a pair of goals.

Arvada on the other hand will do everything possible to forget about this loss as soon as possible.

The Bulldogs opened their season going unbeaten in their first three games. Since, they have dropped three in a row.

“We need to forget about that loss and go back to work because league play is here and now every game matters,” Arvada coach Stuart Detlefsen said.

Arvada scored nine goals in their three wins, scoring four goals in two of those games.

However, the Bulldogs have only scored once over their previous three games.

Golden thinks they are just starting to peak. After battling though a very tough nonleague schedule Nolker thinks his team is now battletested.

The Demons record isn’t necessarily flattering, but it also isn’t a true indication of who they really are.

“We have been in every single game we have played this season. Our record isn’t great but our nonleague schedule has been very difficult. But we think we are just starting to put things together,” Nolken said.

Golden (3-4-1) will play at Wheat Ridge High School Thursday at 4 p.m.

Arvada (2-3-2) will play Evergreen at NAAC Thursday at 4 p.m.
