DENVER The Summit High School girls soccer team didnt need to win Thursdays game at Colorado Academy in order to accomplish its short-term goal.Our goal for today was to work hard for our teammates, Tigers coach Stephanie Johnson said following her teams 4-0 loss. We definitely did that and it was a fun game to watch.According to Johnson, the difference between the Tigers effort in a 6-0 loss to Evergreen on Tuesday and their effort Thursday was like night and day.We definitely controlled the game, she said. The score was not reflective of how the game went.The Tigers, who gave up a pair of goals in each half, nearly lit up the scoreboard several times.Sophomore striker Hannah Harvey had four legitimate chances for a goal, all of which went awry.(Hannah) had four amazing shots, Johnson said. One went over, one went wide and two were saved.Several Tigers also knocked on the door from outside the 18-yard line.Emily George, Courtney Wade and Madi Lord each had opportunities, Johnson said. But (Colorado Academys) keeper made some great saves.Summit fell to 2-5-1 overall and 1-3-1 in the 4A Jeffco League with the loss.Johnson said her team returned to its customary short-passing game plan after straying away from it against Evergreen.The Tigers, who dressed a season-high 16 players against the Mustangs, will play their second night game of the season Friday at Elizabeth.Adam Boffey can be contacted at (970) 668-3998, ext. 13631, or at aboffey@summitdaily.com.
