Steamboat girls fall at buzzer

It was better, Steamboat Springs High School girls basketball coach Mack Spitellie said Thursday night.

It wasn’t quite enough, however, and the squad lost by two points on the road against Summit, falling as the Tigers hit a buzzer-beating 3-point shot.

“It went really well, but we lost at the buzzer,” Spitellie said. “They kicked it out, and it went through.”

Steamboat lost, 35-33.

The Sailors trailed early, by two after the first quarter and by six at halftime, 19-13. They outscored Summit 10-4 in the third and got the best of the game for most of the fourth quarter, too, all up until that last shot.

The loss drops the team to 4-15 on the season.

“It was a really good game,” Spitellie said. “We played really hard.”
