The Douglas Girls Team Gets a Sound Win Over Torrington, Jackson Hughes Gets the Hat Trick in the Bearcats Win, and the Central Boys Team Suffers Their 2nd Loss of the Season
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - High school soccer is approaching the end of the season, as the last weekend of April games were started today.
In the Capital City, #3 Central had the chance to defend their ranking against the Sheridan Broncs. This game was all about physicality, with both teams fighting hard to get the upper hand. Neither team could quite find the opportunity to add to the scoreboard, and it wouldn’t be until the second half until someone struck gold. Sheridan managed to convert for a 1-0 lead, and held their ground until the final whistle blew.
Over in the Jackalope City, the #5 Lady Bearcats have been on a roll recently, winning their last five games in a row. Standing in the way of their sixth, is Torrington. The Lady Bearcats found a ton of success early on, as they ended the first half up by 4 goals, while not allowing a single score. They kept the ball in the Trailblazers zone for most of the game, as Lauren Olsen managed to add one more goal in the second half, as the Lady Bearcats continue their win streak with a 5-0 win.
The boys team started this week playing two out of state opponents, in which they ended up splitting one win and one loss. Today it was back to in state opponents as they also took on Torrington, and this game was the Jackson Hughes takeover. Within the first minute, he scored and made his presence known from early on, but he was only getting started. On a breakaway, he ended up getting fouled in the box, which led to a penalty for him, and his second goal of the contest. His next goal was nothing short of outrageous, as he took a shot from way outside the box, and with that he got the hat trick, and Douglas picked up the win in the end 4-0.
