Shorthanded, Huskies eke out win

Ian CroppVail, CO Colorado

EDWARDS Battle Mountain lacrosse entered Saturdays game against Grand Junction without five starters, and that was only half of what was missing for the Huskies.I couldnt get my kids up for the game, said Battle Mountain coach Bob Daino, who was glad to escape with a 9-7 win in Edwards. After the Aspen game Wednesday (which they won 13-9), the kids were so high. Today, we should have won by 15 goals, and the kids were just walking in their sleep, he said.Grand Junction held a 6-5 lead against Battle Mountain before the Huskies rallied behind some inspired play by attackman Coleby Henzlik. We were losing faceoffs like crazy, and finally, I got Coleby in there, and he won a few and turned the tide, Daino said. Hes fabulous. I cant ask enough of him. Hell do anything.Henzlik had four goals and an assist, while Barrett Chow had four helpers and one goal.Daino had to shuffle his lineup to fill in for a handful of injuries.I started five freshman, Daino said. A bunch of freshman and sophomores picked it up for me.Eric Davis had a pair of goals, while Parke Robbins and Ryan Maddux each added one.With the win, Battle Mountain moves to 5-3.Sports Writer Ian Cropp can be reached at 748-2935 or
