Sailors earn split in girls lacrosse doubleheader

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Steamboat Springs High School girls lacrosse team split a pair of games to finish off its first weekend of play this spring.

Playing in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the team lost a tight game to Pueblo West, 12-11, then won one that was just as tight, knocking off Santa Fe Prep, 18-17, to finish the weekend 2-1.

Against Pueblo West, the Sailors got four goals from Riley Schott, three from Isa Demorat, two from Lucy Shimek and one each from Gabby Demorat and Julia McCarthy.

Shimek also racked up five assists, Gabby Demorat two and Schott one while Ava Thiel tallied nine saves in goal for the Sailors.

Steamboat went into sudden death overtime to get the win against Santa Fe Prep, a grueling challenge at the end of a weekend that included three games. The team started that final contest with just one substitute, and it ended without any.

Still, it managed to rebound from a deficit that stretched in the second half as far as seven goals.

Shimek scored seven, Isa Demorat four, Schott, Gabby Demorat and Wyleigh Myers two each and Shelbee Weiss one.

Shimek and Schott each notched four assists, Gabby Demorat and Julia McCarthy had one each and Thiel had eight saves.

“I’m very proud of the way the players stayed in the game and fought back,” coach Betsy Frick said.

Steamboat next plays at 6 p.m. Thursday at Cherokee Trail.
