Squirt B’s win as Sportsmanship continues
The Vail Squirt B’s were chanting “S.O.S.” after their game with the Denver Country Club Friday in pool play of the 2003 Vail Sportsmanship Tournament at Dobson.
Their ship didn’t need saving. Quite to the contrary. Vail knocked off DCC, 12-0, to move to 1-1 in the tournament.
The “S.O.S.” cheer was for “ShutOut, Steve,” as in Vail goalie Steve Parra.
After falling, 2-0, to Boulder earlier in the day, the young Mountaineers came out with everything against DCC.
Andrew Claymon had a hat trick, while both Elliot Simon and Daniel Westerberg had two goals and an assist each. Aaron Lewis, Ben Hymes, Will Hymes, Rudi Baldwin and Erik Hill all lit the lamp.
Other members of the mighty Squirt B’s include Otto Jordan, Garrett Funk Jason Engle, Bjorn Bredeson, Michael Wilhelm, Carter Peel and Karl Norris.
