GREENWOOD VILLAGE | An early goal held up for Grandview Tuesday evening in a 1-0 victory over Hinkley in a non-league boys soccer contest at Stutler Bowl.

In a game involving two Aurora teams off to strong starts to the 2017 season, junior Ransom Hall’s first goal of the season proved enough for coach Brian Wood’s Wolves in a 1-0 victory over the previously unbeaten Thunderbirds.

Junior Jaime Luna picked up an assist for Grandview, which has rebounded from an opening loss with back-to-back victories.

In its debut season under Marcos Madera, Hinkley came off impressive wins over Cherry Creek and Legacy and put good pressure on the Wolves, but couldn’t get anything past Grandview goalie Eddie St. Martin.

The Wolves move on to a matchup against another EMAC team, Adams City, which visits Grandview at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, the same time Hinkley has a big league contest at Gateway.
