Nothin’ but success at Region IX tournament

The Laramie County Community College women’s soccer team successfully defended their Region IX title in Denver.

The Region IX tournament was hosted by Metro State University.  The Golden Eagles first game in the semi-finals was against Western Wyoming Community College.

The Golden Eagles, who outscored Western Wyoming 12-1 in two previous matches during the regular season, didn’t hold back.

The game started in the Golden Eagle’s favor, with three goals in the first 15 minutes scored by Taylor Stoeger, Alexis Hobbs and Nikita Woods.

The Golden Eagles had 22 shots with 12 of those being on goal, versus Western Wyoming’s five shots with three being on goal.

Stoeger grabbed her second goal of the game in the 50th minute, and Woods netted her second goal shortly after.

The Regional Championship game was held Oct. 28 against Sheridan College. This would be the third match of the season between the two teams. The Golden Eagles, who shut out Sheridan College in both their meetings earlier this year, continued the trend in the championship match.

In the first half there were no goals scored, but the Golden Eagles got on the board right after halftime with a 49 minute goal made by Annie Rolf, with an assist from Woods. Six minutes later, the Golden Eagles would take a two-goal lead when Abby Morillon scored on a pass from Stoeger.

The Golden Eagles will host Snow College at 1 p.m. on Nov. 4 at the LCCC athletic fields for the District B playoff game and a chance to earn a bid to the National Championship.

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 In the year 2000, my father was reassigned to the the F.E. Warren Air Force Base where we ended up staying in smelly, outdated air force housing for three or four years until we moved off the base.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