SHS girls soccer suffers close defeat to Thunder Basin

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan High School girls soccer team lost 2-1 at Thunder Basin Friday night. The Lady Broncs dropped to 1-4 in conference, 2-5-2 overall.

The second-ranked Lady Bolts improved to 5-1 in conference play and 10-1 overall.

The score was knotted 0-0 at halftime, but Thunder Basin scored two quick goals in the beginning of the second half to seize control. Sheridan responded with a goal from Braylee Standish on a penalty kick but couldn’t net an equalizer.

Sheridan head coach Kevin Rizer said the team played well throughout the game.

“It was a game that probably could’ve gone either way,” Rizer said. “Our girls continue to grow and impress us. It’s hard when the results aren’t headed your way yet, but they continue to battle.”
