The Basalt High School women’s football team continued their winning streak on Saturday, en route to beat Delta in double overtime, 1-0.

Sophomore Sarah Levy scored the only goal of the game from a penalty kick in the second overtime period.

The victory improved Basalt’s record to 5-1 on aggregate. Already more than half of its pandemic shortened 10-game regular season, BHS has played six games in just 12 days. The Longhorns will now have a few days off before hosting Aspen on Thursday.

“To come away with a 5-1 record is a great achievement,” BHS coach Brent Hayes wrote in a text. “I can’t imagine there has been a more brutal schedule in women’s football, maybe ever, than this. Looking forward to a few necessary days off before facing Aspen.

The skiers remain 1-0-1 in aggregate after not playing this weekend. AHS is also out until Thursday’s game with Basalt.
