Summit hockey team trounced by Regis

Fresh off four straight wins – wins that were crucial to the team’s playoff hopes – the Summit High hockey team came into Friday’s matchup at No. 1 Regis feeling confident and ready to pull the upset.

Well, the Tigers left the game with their tails between their legs after an 8-0 trouncing.

“Terrible, just a terrible display of hockey,” SHS head coach Chris Ruhly said. “We came in here expecting to compete, and we got embarrassed by the best team in the state.”

The Tigers were outshot 40-12 and failed to generate much of an attack all night.

And Ruhly felt that had more to do with lack of focus than anything else.

“We thought with how well we’d been playing we could just show up and get a win,” he said of his team. ” … Instead, we came out and laid an egg.”

Summit had just dominated a strong Monarch squad on Wednesday 7-2 for its fourth straight win, scoring a total of 23 goals over that stretch.

Now, the loss puts the Tigers in the position of needing a win tonight at Columbine to guarantee a spot in the postseason. Luckily, Columbine is tied for last in the Foothills Conference standings.

The games is slated for a 6:10 p.m. start.
