Fruita’s late goal nullified in loss
It wasn’t Aspen’s 16-15 girls lacrosse win over Fruita Monument High School on Monday at Stocker Stadium that had Fruita coach Mark Twardowski upset.
He believes Fruita was shorted a goal.
With about one minute left, Twardowski said, Alyssa Urban scored a goal that would have tied the game at 15-15 for the Wildcats (6-6), but one of the two officials nullified the goal.
“We have photo proof the goal was in,” Twardowski said. “And after the goal, our girls went to the center for the next draw and the same ref called a restart without allowing our girls to reposition. And then Aspen scored. It was embarrassing.”
Clay Campbell led Fruita with five goals, followed by Urban’s four.
Fruita plays Battle Mountain at 4 p.m. Thursday at Stocker Stadium.

Central, which did not compete for team honors because it was the only Class 5A team, shot a 269 and was led by Brittany Hoppe and Jordan Eller, both of whom carded an 89.
