Jaguars show bite at SHS

FARMER’S KORNER – The panic sign has begun to flash for the Summit High School boys soccer team after Saturday’s 2-1 loss to D’Evelyn.

The Tigers fell to 3-7-1 overall and 1-2-1 in the Class 4A Jefferson County League. They may need to win the rest of their games to return to the playoffs, according to coach Peter Shafroth. The top four in the league will advance.

“We just can’t put the ball in the goal,” Shafroth said. “And we had so many opportunities.”

The Tigers outshot the Jaguars 17-4 by Summit’s count but managed only a first-half goal by Jorge Infante off a corner kick.

D’Evelyn tied the game in the first half off a direct free kick. The game-winner came in the second on a penalty kick.

Summit is averaging just one goal per game in the Jeffco League.

“I’m at a loss where to go,” Shafroth said. “We’re doing everything to win a game except for finishing.”

Summit travels to Englewood on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. match.

Softball team’s

streak snapped

GOLDEN – The Summit High softball team lost for the first time in three games Saturday, falling 10-6 to Jeffco League foe Golden.

Summit allowed six runs in the fifth inning, which turned a 5-3 lead into a 9-5 deficit.

Heather Kanski’s triple drove in two runs, and Kelsey Hodson and Shannon Buhler each had a single and a double.

Mackenzie Vorhees also connected for two hits.

Summit had a chance to even its overall and league records but instead slipped to 7-9 (3-5).

“Regardless of the outcome, we played really well,” said Summit coach Shelly Koehler. “As far as I see, we’re right in there with the best of them. We should peak right in time for districts.”

Summit’s last regular-season home game is Tuesday at 4 p.m. against Jefferson.
