The Laramie County Community College men’s soccer team continues to turn its season around as it has won the last eight out of 10 games. With a group that consists mainly of freshman, it took some time for the team to create chemistry with each other, but that has changed. Coach Vince Gibson said, “We believe we are over that hump now.” Gibson said that now that the freshman have gotten to know each other on the field, that they have “nice playmaking ability”.

After a 0-3 start to the season, the Golden Eagles now have a winning record of 8-5. Freshman midfielder Rafael Munoz and freshman forward Tristan White lead the men in goals scored with eight each. Munoz also leads the team in assists with seven. LCCC is second in the nation in shots on goal but 31st in goals. Gibson said that it would be nice if those shots turned into goals as they head into the final games of the season.

As the team heads into conference play, Gibson explained that the team is just going to “worry about themselves” and not the opponents. If the goals start coming with as many shots as the men are getting, the team will be hard to beat, as the defense has been dominating in most recent games.
