Steamboat boys lacrosse picks up league win
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Steamboat Springs High School boys lacrosse team racked up another league win Thursday, going on the road to knock off Vail Mountain for the team’s second league win in three nights.
The Sailors beat Vail, 19-3, after beating Summit in Steamboat on Tuesday, 18-3.
“We’re continuing to play pretty good defense, for sure,” coach Jay Lattimore said. “The boys are getting more and more physical with their play, which is great, and their taking care of business at the end of the game.”
Steamboat certainly slammed the door in the second half Thursday, scoring 11 goals, but it logged some pretty solid minutes in the first half as well, taking an 8-3 lead.
Jackson Lynch scored four goals for Steamboat, but much of the scoring was spread across the roster. Ten different players scored in the game.
Kieran Hahn, Jacob Gilbertson, Davis Petersen, Tallak Mhyre, Ben Hoefer and Tyler Doyne notched two goals each. Macray Dillingham and Mac Moody had one each.
Gilbertson had five assists, Petersen two and Will Eck, Dillingham, Moody and Mhyre one each.
The Sailors, with a 7-3 record and 10 games played, have played more games than any other team in the state to this point, though Steamboat’s pace will drop off quickly, and they’re not set for a very welcome break. They started their season with an intense schedule, packing six games into the first two weeks of action.
Now they’ll have a week off before traveling April 12 to play at Eagle Valley. A two-week break awaits later this month when the school is on spring break, which most Front Range schools are already through.
Steamboat was ranked No. 2 in the most recent RPI ratings, thanks in part to the fact that many of those early games came against the state’s top teams.
