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.
