Steamboat Springs It wasn’t quite the breakthrough the Steamboat Springs High School girls lacrosse team experienced Thursday night, when it picked up its first win as a varsity program. Still, coach Betsy Frick said the squad might have played even better Friday in a 10-9 loss on the road against Pine Creek.
“It was a fun game,” Frick said. “Really fun. We had some shots, if we would have taken another half-second and looked at a target, done a little better job of aiming, it wouldn’t have been unheard of for us to pull out this game.”
As it was, Nikki Fry scored with nine seconds remaining to pull her team close, but it could get no closer in the final moments.
Fry finished with six goals and helped lead the way as Steamboat rallied from a 5-1 deficit late in the first half. She scored to cap the Steamboat rally in the waning seconds of the first half to cut into that lead and make it 6-5.
Hanna Hartley scored to open the second, however, and that tied things up. Teagann Yeager then scored soon after, answering a Pine Creek goal to again even things up, this time at 7-7.
Steamboat couldn’t hang with one final Pine Creek surge.
Aleigh Aurin also scored for Steamboat.
“It was really exciting. The girls played hard,” Frick said.
Steamboat, 1-2, next plays Monday on the road at Aspen.
