The 17th ranked Golden Eagles women’s soccer team
beat the Northwest College Trappers 1-0 on Oct. 12 and then rolled over Western Wyoming Community College 7-2 on Oct. 13 at LCCC.
It was a classic Region IX battle against the Trappers. The Eagles came into the game knowing that the Trappers were going to play harder than they did in their first meeting in which the Eagles won 3-1. The Trappers played some hard nose defense, but they couldn't overcome LCCC's possession and shooting strength. In the 29th minute, LCCC’s Sayit Mejia scored the lone goal of the match off an assist by Zahimara Fantauzzi. Goalkeeper Marissa Schultz and the Golden Eagles defense are credited with the shutout.

It didn’t take long for the lady Eagles to warm up in the cold and windy conditions on Saturday’s game against the Western Wyoming Community College Mustangs. LCCC’s Taylor Hockley crossed the ball from the left side of the field to Francesca Ali for the first goal of the match in the 2nd minute of play. The Golden Eagles would score three more goals between the 30th minute to the 36th minute. The Mustangs scored a goal right before the halftime whistle. The Eagles would come into the second half with a 4-1 lead. In the second half the Mustangs scored another goal in the 57th minute to make the score 4-2. The Mustangs' second goal seemed to shake up the Eagles as they would score three more goals to close the game with a 7-2 win.
