Steamboat Springs The Grand Junction lacrosse team piled up five goals in the fourth quarter of its home match Saturday against Steamboat Springs High School. That wasn’t nearly enough to erase the Sailors first three quarters of domination, however, and Steamboat held on easily for the 13-6 win.
“In the fourth quarter, we were doing some subbing and lost our intensity, but by then the game was over,” Steamboat coach Bob Hiester said. “We played some really good lacrosse.”
The win improved Steamboat to 4-0 on the season.
Brian Bertrand led a wide-spread scoring attack with four goals. Grant McCannon scored three, and Jack Spady and Ian Anderson each added two. Garret Erick and Andrew White scored one each.
“We had really good, balanced scoring,” Hiester said. “We had a lot of kids that participated, and our defense played really well.”
Steamboat hits the road again Wednesday for a 4 p.m. game at Rock Canyon before returning home Saturday to face Summit.
“We feel like we’re in a really good place right now, playing as good of lacrosse as we’ve ever played,” Hiester said. “We can’t get complacent. The biggest thing we have to do is maintain our level of play and try to push it up a bit more.”
