Nothing but victory against Campbell County

Golden Eagles defeat Gillette College 7-1

The Laramie County Community College women’s soccer team continued its dominant run against other Wyoming schools with a 7-1 victory over Gillette College on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

The scoring started in the 19th minute when Nikita Woods found her teammate Annie Roth for the game’s first goal. Shortly after, Taylor Stoeger converted a pass from Abby Morillon to extend the lead to two goals.

The first half was unusually quiet for the Golden Eagles, however, the second half did not disappoint. The Golden Eagles pressured the opposing goalie early and Stoeger scored in the 47th minute off an assist from Maria da Silveira.

Elise Atkins gave Morillon her second assist of the game when she extended the lead to 4-0 in the 63rd minute.

Immediately after, Rolf grabbed her second goal of the game in the 65th minute after a pass from Simone Marcus. Natalie de Marco made it 6-0 in the 71st minute and Silveira snagged the final goal.

Gillette College ended with one goal, two shots on goal and five saves versus the Golden Eagles’ seven goals, 19 shots on goal and one save.

The Golden Eagles defeated Sheridan College on Sept. 23 with a final of 2-0. The Golden Eagles were lead by Naoemi Amaro and Stoeger. Both scored a goal.

The Golden Eagles improved to 8-1 on the year and 4-0 in Region IX play. They will host Western Wyoming Community College on Wednesday, Oct. 4, at the LCCC Athletic Fields.

About Logan Harrison (26 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 In the year 2000, my father was reassigned to the the F.E. Warren Air Force Base where we ended up staying in smelly, outdated air force housing for three or four years until we moved off the base.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.
