Steamboat Springs It could have gone better, Steamboat Springs High School girls lacrosse coach Betsy Frick said. It also could have gone worse, and after the Sailors' 14-3 loss to league-leading Grand Junction, she said her team was focused on a crucial matchup against Fruita Monument.
The game is a rematch of one Steamboat won, 12-8, earlier this season.
"Fruita came into that first game thinking it would be an easy win," Frick said. "I know they'll come back really wanting to beat us. It should be a close, competitive game."
Steamboat couldn't handle Grand Junction's pressure Friday, falling behind 9-0 in the first half. The squad played better in the second half, getting a pair of goals from Teagann Yeager, another from Nikki Fry and an assist from Aleigh Aurin. It also got 10 saves from McKenzie Repollo.
A telling stat in the game: The Sailors got 16 shots, but only three required saves from the Grand Junction goalie.
"If we could get that percentage up, we might have done better," Frick said.
