Glenwood comes into the game at  9-3-1 and currently are on a run of 8-0-1 in their last 9 matches after starting the season 1-3. Glenwood has also shutout 5 teams this year. Glenwood will rely on their top two scorers in Junior, German Alvarado, and Senior, Leo Mireles to lead them over Battle Mountain in their upcoming matchup.

“We have an outstanding midfielder in Leo Mireles but I think the team as a whole will step up and play as a team,” said Smith.

Battle Mountain comes into this game with a 10-1-1 record having only been narrowly defeated by the #4 team in the 4A Standings, Durango Demons, by a score of 3-2 in OT. The Huskies will rely on their goal leader, Junior Danny Barajas, who has a total of 19 goals on the season.

In their first matchup of the season, Glenwood and Battle Mountain fought it out , ultimately ending in a 2-2 tie. Glenwood has not been able to defeat the Huskies in four years as Battle Mountain has claimed the league championship in the last 3 years.
