Women's soccer nearly perfect on road


The ninth-ranked Laramie County Community College women’s soccer team finished its six-game road trip Sept. 29 at Otero Junior College.

The Eagles were looking to go undefeated on the road in September but were surprisingly upended 0-2 during the Saturday afternoon game. The teams battled to a scoreless first half before Otero broke out to a 2-0 lead, led by Jenna Liverpool, who scored the first goal and an assist on the second goal.

Despite the setback LCCC remains one of the top threats in the conference as they prepare to head back home.

During the entire road trip, the team finished with 29 goals while giving up just six of their own. The team’s largest margin of victory came against Western Wyoming, pulling out an 11-1 victory on Sept. 14.

Overall, the team seemed pretty pleased with its position but was determined to return to winning after finishing the first half of the season 6-2 overall.

Returning to Cheyenne, the women will play their first home game since the beginning of September on Oct. 3 and will remain at home for the rest of the season except for a scrimmage, which will be held in Boulder, Colo., against the Colorado University Club Gold on Oct. 5.

Head Coach Jim Gardner said the home games will be a good change from the long road trips, but the team cannot become too comfortable at home, as they begin the second round of games against each conference team.

The upcoming home games will begin Oct. 12, with a matchup against Northwestern College followed by a matchup against Western Wyoming on Oct. 12.

The regular season will come to a close Oct. 19-20, with rematches against Otero Junior College and Trinidad State Junior College followed by the regional tournament Oct. 26–27.
