Summit lax back to form against Junction
April 21, 2012
Defensive dominance was the story of a first half that ended 1-0 in Grand Junction’s favor at Tiger Stadium Saturday. Summit had the game tied 3 apiece early in the fourth, but it quickly slipped away from them.
Head coach Karl Barth said the guys played much better than they did in Friday’s lackluster, back-from-spring-break performance.
“Our defense played really well, and in the first half we had a couple good looks but couldn’t put it in the net. It was pretty interesting. I don’t think I’ve been involved in a lacrosse game that was 1-0 at halftime,” Barth said.
The team did a nice job of slowing down Grand Junction’s standout player. “They couldn’t really find a solution to it, so that slowed them down,” Barth said. “It was much improved. We played better than we did (Friday).”
With 18 saves, freshman Jordan Nelson had a huge game in net. “He played great in goal. He’s got quite a future ahead of him,” Barth said.
The team was led on offense by Evan Feldman, who nabbed two goals, Sean Farley, who got the other goal and an assist, and George Gruber, who had a couple assists.
“I thought we played really well. We were a little shorthanded. Really, in some ways, it was one of the better games we’ve played as a team. We just didn’t finish our chances,” Barth said.
