Battle Mountain doubles up Summit High hockey

VAIL – Yes, Summit, there really is a Shrine Pass Trophy. It’s just that the award, given to the winner of Battle Mountain-Summit High School hockey games, seems to be collecting dust on the west side of the pass. For the fifth year in a row – since the trophy’s inception in 2001 – the Huskies hung onto the marble slab with a 6-3 win over the Tigers Tuesday at Dobson Arena, completing a season sweep of Summit.While Huskies co-captain Casey Kleisinger gladly scooped up the prize, neither side was doing cartwheels after Tuesday’s games. The Huskies (9-2 in Metro League play and 11-6-1 overall) have a big one against Machebeuf on Saturday with Metro title implications. Meanwhile, Summit (5-12 overall, 3-7 Metro) is battling to stay ahead of Doherty and Coronado to snag a state playoff spot.”Defensively, we were running around a little bit,” Huskies coach Gary Defina said. “We spent a little too much time in our zone today. We got away from our game plan. We played down to their level. That’s the best way to put it. Then again, it was good enough to win.”
