Summit High girls roundup March 22-29
It was a snowy soccer scene at Summit High School on Thursday afternoon, as the Tigers of Summit took on the Tigers of Grand Junction High School.
Entering the game, Summit knew they had a tall task in front of them, as Grand Junction entered the match undefeated on the season, at 6-0. By game’s end, and as snow continued to blanket the field and make conditions tough for both sets of Tigers, Summit fell to Grand Junction by the score of 3-0.
The loss pushes Summit’s record on the season to 3-5, 2-4 in the seven-team 4A Western Slope girls soccer league.
For the season, Summit senior Piper Kunst leads the team in scoring, with seven goals on the season, including a stellar three goal and one assist effort in Summit’s thrilling 4-3 March 22 road victory against Conifer High School.
Kunst and her fellow senior playmaker Tanner McCann have led the Tigers thus far through this year’s campaign, as McCann leads the team in assists, with six, and is second on the team in goals, with six. In the Tigers pair of 3-1 losses to Steamboat Springs on March 24 and 27, McCann registered both of the Tigers goals.
The Tigers next game is at Rifle — a team they defeated 10-0 at home on March 15 — on April 3. Their next home game is against Glenwood Springs on Thursday, April 5, at 4 p.m.
The Summit girls lacrosse team improved its record to 3-5 on the season with their 9-7 road win versus Durango on Saturday.
The Tigers blitzed the Demons in the second half with six second session goals to pull away for their first win since a 16-5 home triumph the Saturday prior against Denver North.
For the season, Summit senior midfielder Erin Scott-Williams leads the team in points, with 17, including a team-leading 15 goals. She also leads the team with 30 groundballs on the season. Tigers junior goalie Aguiar Porter has stopped 62 of 79 shots on the season, for a save percentage of .784.
The Tigers next game is Wednesday, April 4, at Steamboat Springs.
