DENVER — Waterloo Columbus fought off Class 1A’s ninth-ranked Denver 2-1 in a girls’ soccer matchup Monday night.

The Sailors (2-2) took advantage of a strong wind at their backs in the opening half to create several scoring opportunities and finally cashed in when Julie Benda rocketed a ball into the net from 30 yards out in the 35th minute.

Trailing 1-0 at halftime, Denver had the wind in the second half and drew even with 35 minutes remaining on a penalty kick after Columbus was whistled for hand ball in the box off a corner kick.

The Sailors got their own penalty kick opportunity with 23 minutes to play when Jenna Schott was taken down right outside the box. Maddie Burr stepped up and buried the free kick and Columbus’ defense protected the lead the rest of the way.

It was the first loss for Denver, which had outscored its first two opponents by a combined score of 11-1.
