Easiest practise would have been if you would have key-worded the original clips according the highlights. Goals, misses, good play etc. whatever you need.
This way you could call up only the sections of a game you want to combine for either summary or highlights.

But I understand you haven't done this because it is not your preferred workflow.

You can't drag edited clips to the original or a new event. But you can do the following: highlight the clip in your edit (with the pointer over the clip hit C, or click on it), than hit shift-F to match select the range of the clip in the original event it is coming from, than hit command-K to assign a keyword to it (e.g. Goal) once you done this for your best moments throughout your edits you can select the keyword selection in the event and either drag them all down to a new project or do it one by one making a new order which is not time based.

Alternatively you can just multi select (command click) clips from your summary edits, than copy-past them into a new project and edit to your desired order. of course this will create gabs but they are easily deleted.

That's the 2 options I can think of. May not be all :-)

Best Carsten
