Steamboat Springs A strong defensive performance set the stage for a win Friday for the Steamboat Springs High School boys lacrosse team.
The Sailors beat Eagle Valley 9-3.
Peter Wharton racked up eight saves for Steamboat in goal. Davis Petersen then scored five goals at the other end, and Colin Musselman scored twice.
“We definitely did a good job on defense,” coach Jay Lattimore said. “Peter had a great game in net, and I loved the defense.”
Steamboat, 2-1, will next play Saturday at Golden.
“The guys are playing pretty well on the road right now, and we're excited to be going down to play a Front Range team,” Lattimore said. “That will give us a pretty good test to see how we're doing early this season.”
