Win slips away from Steamboat hockey

— The Steamboat Springs High School hockey team only just missed out on the chance to make a winning streak.

After winning its first game of the season Saturday, the team fell 4-3 in overtime on the road Monday against Standley Lake.

The Gators got a goal from Nick McCarron 1 minute, 33 seconds into overtime for the comeback victory against the Sailors.

Steamboat trailed 2-0 midway through the second period but used power-play opportunities to get back in the game.

The Sailors got a goal from David Cropper to dig into the lead in the second period, and goals from Jordan Gorr and Luke Borgerding in the third period to take a 3-2 lead.

All three goals came on power plays.

The loss drops Steamboat to 1-10 on the season. It next plays at 6 p.m. Wednesday at home against Aspen.
