Steamboat girls lacrosse falls to Battle Mountain


— They keep getting closer, and after Saturday, Steamboat Springs High School girls lacrosse coach Betsy Frick came to one conclusion.

“One of these days, we’ll pull one of these close ones off,” she said.

That day wasn’t Saturday, but the Sailors had their chances. Steamboat fell, 7-6, at Battle Mountain. A late drive for a goal came up short, and the squad dropped to 0-6.

Aleigh Aurin scored all six of Steamboat’s goals Saturday.

“She’s good at rolling the crease,” Frick said. “She’s good at shooting when she’s double teamed, and she goes to the goal while some of our players are still a little more hesitant.

“But, that was a team effort on (Saturday). We put a lot of shots on goal, and hers were the only ones that went in.”

The squad returns to action Wednesday in Steamboat Springs, the first of a string of three home games.

“We played great, and it was a really exciting game,” Frick said. “The girls played awesome.”
