— The Steamboat Springs High School boys lacrosse team started well and finished even better during a 16-1 win against Englewood on Tuesday in the Denver metro area.

“The kids played real well,” Sailors coach Bob Hiester said. “It was a good game for us to have at that point.”

The Sailors used 26 players, rotating four-plus lines onto the Englewood field.

Steamboat held a 3-0 lead at the end of the first quarter and extended its lead to 5-0 by halftime.

The Sailors added nine goals in the second half.

It was a change from Saturday’s 11-2 loss to Alexand–er Dawson.
