Steamboat girls lacrosse coasts by Telluride for 1st win

— An all-around scoring effort from the Steamboat Springs High School girls lacrosse team spelled the Sailors’ first win of the spring on the road against Telluride on Friday.

Nine different Steamboat players got in on the scoring party as the Sailors downed Telluride, 16-2. This is Telluride’s first season fielding girls lacrosse, and Steamboat took advantage early and often.

“Since it’s their first year of varsity, it was an opportunity for us to work on some things under a little less pressure,” Steamboat coach Betsy Frick said.

Brittany Brown led the Sailors with a trio of goals. Cassett Yeager, Kaelyn Kauffmann, Bella Arce, Brittney Starks and Maura Glynn each had two scores. Starks also pitched in a pair of assists.

Defensively, goalie Summer Dorr denied five Miners shots.

“We were moving the ball well, and (Telluride) didn’t get an opportunity to take many shots,” Frick said. “We did a good job on transitions and talking on the field. We still have a lot of work to do.”

The win comes on the heels of the Sailors’ tough Thursday loss at Eagle Valley, an opponent they were able to edge for their only win last spring. The more experienced Devils outgunned the Sailors, 21-6. Becky Brown paced Steamboat in the loss with a hat trick, while Ellie Crouch, Yeager and Kauffmann each had one score.

Steamboat will stay on the road overnight and will square off with Durango at 10 a.m. Saturday.
