NC pushes past RHS girls in final half
Apr 7, 2014 - By Craig Blumenshine, Staff Writer
The Wolverines will host Casper Kelly Walsh on Tuesday night.
The Riverton Lady Wolverines soccer team used a perfectly placed free kick from Savannah Salisbury in the eighth minute to tie Friday's match with Casper Natrona at 1-1, but that was the only time Riverton found the back of the net.
The Lady Fillies scored three consecutive goals to down the Lady Wolverines 4-1 in Casper.
The loss gives Riverton a 1-3 overall record and a 1-1 Class 4-A West conference mark. Natrona (2-3, 2-1 Class 4-A West) outshot the Riverton 8-1 in the second half to earn its most decisive win of the season.
"In the first half, we matched them shot for shot. Later, we couldn't get any rhythm going offensively like we had in our last two games," Riverton head coach Tanya Santee said.
Santee praised the play of Morgan Doyle in the match against NC.
"Morgan is playing forward but really gets back well to help us defensively," Santee said.
The Lady Wolverines host Class 4-A West foe Casper Kelly Walsh on Tuesday. Game time, according to the RHS activities offices, is set for 6 p.m. at Wolverine Field.
"I think Kelly Walsh will be more physical than Natrona. They will put a lot more pressure on us offensivly. I think KW is showing themselves to be a little stronger, and they have more experience," Santee said.
