Eagle Valley girls lacrosse avenges loss to Summit
FARMER’S KORNER — Much better.
A week after losing a 13-12 overtime heartbreaker to Summit County, Eagle Valley girls lacrosse returned the favor, knocking off the Tigers, 10-9, on Wednesday, March 21.
“It was very satisfying,” Devils coach Hannah McKee said. “It’s been a goal of ours since last week. We talked about coming out stronger in this game, and we did that.”
The Devils led 9-6 at the half and held off the Tigers late, thanks in large part to a key save late by goalie Erin Keeney.
Autumn Ross also had a big game defensively.
Hayley Carpenter and Rivenna Olden each had hat tricks, while Sofia Rinn, Olivia Fedrizzi, Janeth Chavez and Rachel Devlin also found the net.
In the instance that Mountain Conference teams play each other twice, the second encounter is the league game. Ergo, the Devils are 1-0 in the Mountain and 2-1 overall.
Eagle Valley’s next game is Wednesday, March 28, at Fruita Monument.
Rita’s two closest peers have climbed the 8,850-meter (29,035-foot) peak 21 times each, but both of them have retired from mountain climbing.
