SHERIDAN — Two second half penalty kicks sealed a 3-0 win for No. 17 Otero Junior College over the Sheridan College women’s soccer team Saturday.
Head coach Stefan Skillman said that they had a great first half, only trailing 1-0, with that being the only goal they gave up in the run of play all game. He said goalkeeper Jacey Repsis had an amazing game, and the team as a whole had a good showing against one of the best teams in the country.
“We definitely have to play against teams with more experience, but the girls are doing well,” Skillman said of what’s been a learning experience on the road in September during their first ever Region IX campaign. “We’re focusing on system, you don’t get caught up in results, we’ve been focusing on defending first, and we did a very good job containing them and keeping them.”
The Lady Generals (0-4-0) will play a final weekend on the road before spending the month of October at home.
They play Western Wyoming Friday in Rock Springs. They head to Laramie County Community College (6-1-0) for a meeting with the No. 2-ranked NJCAA team in the country on Saturday.
The Sheridan College men (1-4-1) continued their first ever Region IX campaign over the weekend, falling 6-0 Saturday at Otero Junior College. They’re in Rock Springs to play Western Wyoming (2-2-0) Friday and Laramie to play LCC (4-0-0) Saturday as well.
