FARMER’S KORNER – Three days. Three games. Three wins.

The Summit High girls’ lacrosse team capped off a long week with a dominating 17-1 win over Eagle Valley at home Thursday.

Jaclin Limone scored four times in the first half, and Bri Barto added five goals, as the Tigers cruised to the victory.

“It was a great game overall,” SHS head coach Kristen Elliott said. “I don’t think I could point one person out; it was a great team effort.”

Freshman goalie Chelsea Christianson saved all but one shot in the win, but with Summit’s punishing defense and swift offensive attack clicking on all cylinders, she didn’t have a whole lot of work to do.

Sophomore Ivy Marshall got the Tigers started with a goal just over five minutes into the game. And after Eagle Valley tied the game at 1-1 only 37 seconds later, Summit started to take over.

Limone scored her four goals, Barto had two, and Marshall added another to close the first half with an 8-1 lead.

“Attack did a great job,” Elliott said. “They got us going.”

The Tigers scored another nine goals after halftime, while keeping Eagle Valley from generating much offense of their own.

Summit’s Michelle Warpecha scored twice in the second half, while Barto had three.

The Tigers also received tallies from Haley Anderson, Katy Aceto, Kelly Joyce and Hayley Colvin.

The win came a day after the Tigers earned a hard-fought 9-8 win over Conifer and two days after a 9-7 win against Aspen.

Summit is now 8-3 on the year and looks to be in good shape to wrap up the league title next week, which would give them a spot in the Colorado State Playoffs.

“We’ve just got to keep it rolling,” Elliott said.

Summit plays at Battle Mountain on Tuesday at 4 p.m.
