Labor Day weekend victory, women hold undefeated status

The LCCC Women’s soccer team competed twice over the Labor Day weekend and secured two wins to improve to 4-0 on the year.

On Friday, the previously 1-0 Salt Lake Community College made the trip to Cheyenne and gave the Eagles their closest game so far this year. LCCC dominated for most of the match, outshooting Salt Lake 16-4 with 10 out of those 16 shots being on goal. The fireworks didn’t start until the second half when Taylor Stoeger scored during a scramble in the penalty box to give the Eagles a one goal lead. Nine minutes later the Eagles were able to find the back of net when Abby Morillon scored in the 68th minute.

Salt Lake started to mount the comeback when Sydney Hathaway was able to put her team on the board with a goal in the 78th minute, however, the comeback would be squashed by LCCC and they were able to get out with the victory and improve to 3-0 on the year.

The second game of the weekend was on Sunday against the Iowa Western Reivers.

LCCC looked to come out early and make a statement with a goal in the 11th minute by Nikitia Woods assisted by Stoeger. The scoring did not stop there and in the 26th minute Jazmine Moyte found the nylon with an assist from Woods. Woods was not done yet and netted a goal in the 40th minute just before halftime on a pass from Natalie De Marco, which improved the lead to 3-0.

LCCC came out in the second half with a more energetic attack and was able to score early when Elise Atkins scored in the 62nd minute and gave Stoeger her second assist of the game. Stoeger capped off an impressive day with her second goal off a penalty kick in the 76th minute. LCCC secured the 5-0 win soundly.

With a high octane offense, and Stoeger and Woods leading the way as the primary goal scorers, the Eagles will look to stay hot and improve on their 4-0 record as they make the long trip to Texas next weekend were they will square off with Wiley College and Tyler Junior College.

About Logan Harrison (41 Articles)
My name is Logan Harrison, I am 21 years old. I was born in the great city of Minot, North Dakota. My father had been sent to the Minot Air Force base, where we lived for four years after I was born. In the year 2000, my father was reassigned to the the F.E. Warren Air Force Base where we ended up staying in smelly, outdated air force housing for three or four years until we moved off the base. I attended Anderson Elementary school and then enrolled into the East High system where I attended Carey Jr. High for three years. After graduating from East High in 2014, I received a scholarship to Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington, Wyoming, to compete on the golf team. During my time there we went to back-to-back National Championships and took second in the region my freshman year, and during my sophomore season we won the Region IX title. I always love a good meal with good company, and I enjoy hanging out and talking with friends and family. I will never pass up an opportunity to pet a dog or any pet. This past winter I took a trip to St. Thomas Island in the Virgin Islands where I stayed with a friend of mine and worked as a kayak guide for seven weeks. That whole experience is something I encourage everyone to do. Get out of your comfort zone and explore a new environment, culture, food, and activities. I went kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking almost everyday. The highlight of my time there was scuba diving, swimming with sharks and exploring an old shipwreck. The ocean is surprisingly very peaceful and magical when you finally reach the bottom. The whole experience taught me that life doesn't actually start until you reach the end of your comfort zone.
