KW shuts out Riverton girls 3-0

May 5, 2014 - By Craig Blumenshine, Staff Writer

The Riverton Lady Wolverines girls soccer team continued to struggle finding offensive flow and was shut out by the Casper Kelly Walsh Lady Trojans 3-0 Saturday in Casper.

Riverton (4-11-1, 2-5-1 Class 4-A West) will try to rebound with a rare mid-week travel game at Evanston on Tuesday.

Earlier this year, the Lady Wolverines beat Evanston 1-0 at Wolverine Field.

"We didn't have our best game today for sure. We didn't make mental errors, but we didn't play as cohesivley. We had moments where we moved the ball around really well. We did get quite a few shot opportunities but just couldn't get them in," Riverton head coach Tanya Santee said.

Riverton trailed 2-0 at halftime and gave up a goal on a cross in the 78th minute.

"They have some really fast forwards. They made well-timed plays through the middle that we could't stop, and then it was off to the races," Santee said.

Santee said her team needs to feel like they are playing better, and that will be the focus as it plays its final week of the regular season.

After traveling to Evanston, both Riverton's boys and girls soccer teams will be at home against Green River this Friday prior to hosting the Class 4-A West regional tournament the following week.
