The Skiers lost a 3-0 decision to Vail Mountain School on the road in a game where the Gore Rangers were battling for playoff seeding.
"They are a very good team, very fast on the attack," Aspen head coach Dave Francis said. "They punished us for our inability to get close enough to them to shut them down."
Vail Mountain scored twice in the first half.
"We made some adjustments in the second half, brought some more players forward. But we struggled to get into this game," Francis said.
"They moved the ball very, very well," Francis said. "their fris tgoal was a very good goal … well played."
