Second half costs Steamboat girls lacrosse

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Steamboat Springs High School girls lacrosse team lost a tight game Thursday, falling on the road against Green Mountain, 8-7.

Steamboat led 5-4 at half, but, playing while missing their third, fourth and fifth leading scorers and eight other players, the Sailors couldn’t quite keep up in the second half.

Riley Schott, the team’s leading scorer, was held to two goals in the face of a physical defensive effort. Lucy Shimek scored four to lead the squad. Kelly Strotbeck had one. Julia McCarthy had two assists and Schott one. Ava Thiel piled up seven saves for the Sailors.

The team’s record slipped to 5-7. It next takes the field April 30 at home against Battle Mountain.
