Steamboat Springs The Steamboat Springs High School lacrosse team got its biggest win of the season Saturday, capping a road trip by giving Cheyenne Mountain its first loss of the year, 9-7.
“It was fun to play, fun to coach, and it was scrappy until the end,” Steamboat coach Bob Hiester said. “We’re really good, and we’re in a position to contend at the state level. There’s no question.”
Steamboat, 8-2, got up early, then managed to hold off a game-long pursuit by Cheyenne Mountain, the No. 6 ranked team in the state by the most recent The Denver Post poll.
Steamboat earned a three-goal lead as the clock wound down. The Indians managed to score once, but the Sailors took possession and ran out the clock.
The key, Hiester said, can be seen in the box score. The Sailors got goals from five players and assists from six.
Thomas Tarcha had three scores. Christian Ramirez and Peter White each had two, and Dane Dixson and Ben Wharton each scored one.
Dixson had two assists, and Tarcha, Wharton, Ramirez, Skylar Thomas and Mitch McCannon all had one.
“Our offense worked the ball really well,” Hiester said. “The key was not trying to do a lot of one-on-one stuff. You can see that worked by the number of assisted goals we have. We moved the ball and found the open guy, then we played tough, pressure defense.”
The Sailors return to the field with a rescheduled home game set for 5 p.m. Monday against Fruita Monument.
