FARMER’S KORNER – It was almost unbelievable.The Summit High School boys soccer team finished with 34 shots to Jefferson’s nine, including a whopping 21-2 advantage in the first half. More than three quarters of the match was played in Jefferson’s end of the field. And it was Summit’s Homecoming.But the only measuring stick that mattered after Thursday night’s final whistle, the scoreboard, belonged to the visiting Saints.Jefferson beat Summit 2-1 in an improbable outcome, demoralizing the hosts and leaving them clinging to a thread of hope for the postseason.The Tigers dropped to 4-6 on the year, and at 1-3 in the competitive 4A Jeffco League, they’ll need to play an almost perfect final two weeks of the season to have a shot at the state playoffs. Jefferson, one of the league’s biggest surprises, improved to 7-5 (3-2 Jeffco).
