Stars Demolish Stripes in Top 60 Scrimmage

GREELEY, Colo. — A close game it was not. Stripes only built on its momentum from the first scrimmage to post a 48-5 win over Stars.

Proving relentless on defense once again, more kicking opportunities resulted in an even more lop-sided victory for Stripes in the second contest of the three match series.

Samantha Pankey and Kaelene Lundstrum accounted for two tries a piece on the day, which was only boosted by the kicking efforts of Meya Bizer.  Bizer slotted three penalties, while converting on two tries.

Katie O’Malley, Christina Zier, and Caroline White crossed the line for scores, respectively, in Stripes favor.

Stars had no answer to the staunch defense of Stripes.  That is until the waning moments of the contest.  Coming on as a late-game sub, Mel Denham capitalized on her freshness to score the lone try for Stars.

The final scrimmage of the Top 60 camp will take place on Saturday.  Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. (MT).

The rosters will be lighter for both sides in the last scrimmage as four players depart for the U20 camp.  Bizer, Cassidy Meyers, Anne Peterson, and Hope Rogers will be absent from the final Stars and Stripes contest as they travel to Chula Vista, Calif.

Saturday’s scrimmage will be the final event of the Top 60 Camp.
