Alamosa finishes strong in victory against Crested Butte

ALAMOSA — Alamosa ended a two game skid with a 3-2 win at home against Crested Butte on Saturday morning.

The Moose looked to be carrying some of that two game streak with them as they came out rather sluggish in the first half falling behind 0-1 registering very little stats and even earning a yellow card. Things looked even worse when with 28 minutes left in the second half a free kick put them down 0-2.

It didn’t take long for Alamosa to shake off the rust and start making some noise. Before the 28th minute was up Claudino Pedro Francisco put one in the back of the net to make it 2-1. Then a minute later Jose Mateo-Andres would rip off a rocket from 20 yards out to make it two all.

Jose Mateo-Andres battles to maintain control. Mateo-Andres went 1-for-2 of his shots on goal.

After spending a little time in their own half Pedro Francisco would find the ball in the attacking zone and score the go ahead goal to make it 3-2. Pedro Francisco and Mateo-Andres each chipped in for two shots on goal apiece while Kaden Hardesty added the fifth going 60 percent on their shots on goal.

The Moose would then wrap up their victory with less attacking and more of a defensive approach pouncing on loose balls and clearing them until time expired. Alamosa goes back to work with a league game this Friday at home against Montezuma- Cortez (0-2) at 4 p.m.
