Steamboat Springs A few trends continued Friday when the Steamboat Springs High School girls lacrosse team traveled to play Grand Junction.
The Sailors lost, 14-3, to drop to 0-5 on the season. Coach Betsy Frick said in that loss, she once again saw a lot of progress, however, and that’s been as regular a trend as the team’s record.
“The girls played the best game they have all season,” Frick said. “To be honest, I didn’t really expect to win. We’re a first-year varsity program, and they won the league last year. They had so many girls sign up, they had to have tryouts. We have 15 players. It wasn’t realistic to think we would win this one, but we played really well, and we’re getting better every game.”
Steamboat got goals from Aleigh Aurin, Nikki Fry and Hannah Samlowski. The Sailors struggled to get the ball by Grand Junction’s talented goalie, falling behind, 9-1, in the first half before cutting into the lead in the second.
Sam Trahan, meanwhile, controlled Steamboat’s goal, logging her first whole varsity game in net. She finished with 11 saves.
“They’re all working better together every game,” Frick said. “We’re improving on both attack and defense.”
The team returns to action at 11 a.m. Saturday at Battle Mountain.
