Four minutes into the game, Glenwood’s Holly Brown managed a breakaway pass to teammate Lilly McSwain, who punched home the first goal. The Elite responded 14 minutes later to tie things up before Michaela Mansfield gave Glenwood the lead with a goal assisted by Jackie Knott.But the 95-degree heat took its toll on the Ice. Despite solid saves by Danielle Turley, Castle Rock scored three more times to preserve the victory.Next up for the Ice is a Sept. 8 matchup with Arsenal Blue (Fort Collins).
