LHS Sweeps Cheyenne South on the Pitch
A pair of dominating conference wins were recorded Tuesday by both Laramie High School soccer teams against Cheyenne South.
It was the first victories for both LHS teams in the 4A East Conference this season.
Laramie Lady Plainsmen
The Laramie Lady Plainsmen (3-1-1, 1-1-1) rolled to a 10-0 rout of the South Bison in Cheyenne.
Laramie got on the board quickly with two goals in the first 11 minutes. They led 4-0 by halftime, and the match was out reach after that.
Allison McElwee, Courtney Hamilton and Morgan Bury recorded two goals apiece. Bury moved to forward midway through the match from keeper.
Savannah Cox added a goal and three assists, while Ariel Romero, Lexi Pulley and Isla Skinner also tallied for the Lady Plainsmen.
The Laramie Plainsmen (3-2, 1-2) broke through with a 7-3 victory over the Bison at the UW North 40 soccer field.
Alexis Eleuterio recorded a hat trick and added an assist, while Blake Moore added a pair of goals.
Eleuterio said it was his first career hat trick.
"I think it was just about the effort and my will power; that always gets me through stuff; and with the help of Lucas (Thorsness), you know he assisted me with two of them; so I think that's what got me those three goals."
Chordell Carter got the Plainsmen on the board in the second minute of the match.
LHS head coach Andy Pannell said Chordell got them going early.
"It was nice for him to just step through and get an early ball and put it in the back of the net. I think it brought a lot of confidence to our team. From then on, the guys played really well."
The other goal came from Enrique Isidro in the 38th minute.
Laramie led 3-1 just 20 minutes into the match. South trimmed it to 3-2 before LHS scored twice right before half for a 5-2 edge.
Both of Laramie's matches against Scottsbluff, NE Thursday have been cancelled.
