Lady Plainsmen Rally To Reach Semifinals
Two freshman pushed the Laramie Lady Plainsmen into the semifinals of the 4A State Soccer tournament.
Sekoya Romero and Lexi Pulley scored goals, as Laramie (11-4-2) rallied past Green River, 2-1, in first round action in Rock Springs.
The Lady Wolves took a 1-0 lead in the 25th minute.
The Lady Plainsmen got the tying goal from Romero in the 38th minute off an assist from freshman Courtney Hamilton. The game remained tied, 1-1, at halftime.
Pulley then took a feed from Hamilton in the 47th minute and poked it past the Green River keeper for the eventual game-winner.
Laramie moves on to the semifinals for a match-up against two-time defending champion Cheyenne East. It will be the fourth meeting between the two squads this season. The Lady T-Birds beat LHS in this same scenario a year ago.
The semifinal is set to start at 1:30 p.m. Friday at Rock Springs High School.
