CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The regular season of high school soccer is quickly coming to a close, so many games during this home stretch become that much more consequential.

The Natrona County Fillies got back into the rankings this week, as they entered today looking for their fourth win in a row in a home tilt with Rock Springs. The Lady Tigers threatened early on, and even earned an opportunity to score on a penalty kick. However, Rian Barthel stonewalled the attempt and denied any other chance for a goal. Once the Fillies took control of the ball, they started to find success on offense. Goals by Kylan Campbell, Elise Swan, and Chayse Grahm (who had 2) led the Fillies to grab the win 4-0 as they head into their final regular season game tomorrow.

Perfection in the regular season is at the doorstep of the Kelly Walsh Trojans boys’ team. With two more games left to go, the first hurdle in their way was Evanston. The Trojans made their presence known early, as they held control of the ball for the majority of this one. Parker O’Neil got things started for Kelly Walsh, as he scored his first goal from way outside of the box. He would soon add another to the total, and after that the Trojans never looked back. They took their game over Evanston 7-0, and only have one regular season game left before they can claim an undefeated regular season.

In the capital city, the fourth ranked Central boys team was looking to string together their second win in a row in a crosstown matchup with South. The Indians found early success thanks to a Sam Shumway goal, and added on with a Sam Smith score to go up 2-0 entering halftime. Out of the break, Central broke the game wide open. Logan Custis scored back-to-back goals in back-to-back minutes (one in the 46th and another in the 47th) before Roscoe Cone-LeBeaumont made it three goals in three minutes with a score in the 48th. That was more than enough scoring as the Indians defense kept a clean sheet to grab a 5-0 victory.

Across town at Okie Blanchard the Plainsmen did battle in a road tilt with East. This one, however, was a defensive battle the whole way. At the end of the first half it looked like Brenden Bohlmann broke the ice for the T-Birds. However, the referees determined that the shot bounced in off the football goalpost and not the crossbar of the soccer goal. That proved to be pivotal, as there was no more scoring the rest of regulation. Laramie stepped up in overtime, and Sammy Heany was the hero with the lone goal of the contest for a 1-0 Plainsmen win.
