Tigers soccer close, but no win Tuesday

LAKEWOOD – The Summit High School girls soccer team lost a close one to Conifer High School in Lakewood Tuesday night.

The Tigers went down 2-1, but were neck and neck throughout the game.

Kate Chapman scored the first goal, kicking a high shot after a pass from Kelly Kastberg in the first 15 minutes of play. Conifer scored a few minutes later on a long ball that “slipped into the net,” according to SHS coach Charlie Krupanszky. Tiger goalie Jamie Norton kept the ball out of the net until 40 minutes into the half, when Conifer scored again.

With strong defense from the Tigers and second-half goalie Shelly Mauch, the game was scoreless in the second half.

“We played a very strong game,” Krupanszky said. “We came very close to winning. It could have easily been 2-1 in our favor. We created a fair number of scoring opportunities and made a lot of progress in the way we’re playing.”

The Tigers are now 1-4-1 in the league with an overall record of 1-8-1. Aside from a make-up game Monday, the Tigers play their final games of the season tonight at Alameda and Friday at Englewood. Krupanszky said the team still has a shot at the playoffs.
