LCCC women’s soccer team records two wins on the road

The Laramie County Community College women’s soccer team was very clean in the back – they didn’t allow a single goal all weekend and defeated Northwest College 4-0 and Sheridan College 3-0.

Friday, the Golden Eagles fired off 39 shots and put 14 of them on goal compared to the 15 shots by Northwest College. LCCC got on the board in the 32nd minute when freshman Sam Phillips found fellow freshman Aubry Gessner for the first goal. In the 39th minute, Gessner sent in a cross, and sophomore Eden Stoddard headed it home to make it 2-0. Gessner made it 3-0 right before the half in the 44th minute when she capitalized on a good opportunity.

In the second half, the Golden Eagles continued to pound the goal but only broke through once when sophomore Brittany Crank scored in the 84th minute to make 4-0.

Saturday, the Golden Eagles found ways once again to get shots off as they peppered the goal with 34 shots – 16 of them on goal. They also only allowed for one shot to be taken by the Generals all game. The Golden Eagles topped Sheridan with a 3-0 victory.

Sophomore Erin Elder scored the first two goals in the seventh and in the 13th minutes to give the Golden Eagles a 2-0 led at the half.

Stoddard recorded the third goal in the 59th minute on an assist from sophomore Melissa Mondragon. The Golden Eagles improve to 6-3-2 on the year and 4-1 in Region IX North. Up next, the Golden Eagles will hit the road on Friday to Scottsbluff, Nebraska, for a matchup with Western Nebraska Community College.
