FARMER’S KORNER – This is how players, coaches and parents want to remember the 2005 Summit High School soccer season. In the Tigers’ final game and only second home match of the year, behind three goals from freshman forward Hannah Harvey, SHS won 6-0 against Elizabeth on Monday.Jamie Norton, Tiffany Novak and Emma Koenig also scored for the Tigers (5-8), who only led 1-0 at half.

Harvey broke the game open. After scoring a 15th-minute goal on a one-timer from a Sarah Ruckriegle corner kick, the freshman scored again in the 48th minute after taking a through ball from senior Shelley Mauch and dribbling past two Cardinals before firing the ball past the keeper to give Summit a 2-0 lead. Senior Jamie Norton, the Tigers’ first-half goalie, scored her first and only goal of the season just two minutes later after trapping a goal kick just outside of the box. Norton fired the ball past the goalie with an upper-90 shot.The flurry of goals continued just three minutes later when senior Krysten Joyce played a ball through to the streaking Harvey, who easily stutter stepped past the helpless Cardinal keeper and walked the ball in to cap off her second hat trick of the year.”Hannah (Harvey) is just a natural born scorer,” Summit coach Dirk Parmley said. “Some kids just have a nose for the goal, and she’s able to find the open spots so that we can get the ball to her.”

“It was our last game, so I wanted to go out with a win,” Harvey said.It took more than a team effort for the game to even take place at Farmer’s Korner. Just three hours before the game, the team wasn’t sure if they’d be playing at home or at Elizabeth. “There was water all over the field,” Joyce said. “We had the athletic director, coaches and anyone that didn’t have a sixth-period class out there squeegeeing.”

But with the girls tennis team playing Vail Mountain School a few hundred yards away, and partly cloudy skies overhead, a large crowd was in attendance to see the Tigers. “The weather held out, and there were a lot of students out here,” Parmley said. “You can’t ask for anything more than that.”Andy Frame can be reached at (970) 668-3998, ext. 236, or at aframe@summitdaily.com.
