Soccer: Broncs fall to Gillette again

SHERIDAN — The Broncs third try to get over the Gillette hump was unsuccessful.

Playing in the 4A East Regional semis, Sheridan fell 2-1 to the Camels Friday night in Cheyenne after losing by that same score one week ago. Down 2-0, Matteus Segura scored in the 74th minute for Sheridan, but the late effort wasn’t enough after a slow first half.

Sheridan played 100 minutes and escaped Thursday’s game against East on PKs to reach the semis.

“It was a tale of two halves,” head coach Kevin Rizer said. “In the first half we played listless, no passion, no desire, it was pretty bad.”
“In the second half we came out and absolutely took it two Gillette the entire half. We had better chances and did much better. We gave up one chance in the half and they scored on it. So we took it as a tie in the second half.”

Rizer said two big stops in front of goal by Camels sweeper Austin Fort saved sure goals that could have turned the tide.

Sheridan plays Cheyenne Central at 10 a.m. today. A win would put them into the state tournament as a No. 3 seed.

“Being through to state is why we came down here,” Rizer said. “We want to finish on a high note.”
