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.

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.
