Riverton girls suffer second loss to Casper school in same week, 5-1 to Kelly Walsh
Apr 28, 2013 - By Craig Blumenshine, Staff Writer
Little went right for the Riverton Lady Wolverines soccer team Saturday at Wolverine Field in a 5-1 loss to the Casper Kelly Walsh Lady Trojans.
Riverton's overall record now stands at 3-6-1 and the team's Class 4-A West conference record is now 2-5.
"It's been a rough week," Lady Wolverine coach Tanya Santee said, referring to her team's two losses to both Casper schools.
With goals in the 29th and 37th minutes, the Lady Trojans had a 2-0 lead at halftime but added another goal to make it 3-0 in the 50th minute.
Riverton tried to make a game of it in the 58th minute when Natalie Lymburner's perfectly-placed corner kick was kept alive by Aisha Durfey's head. Brittany Baxter finished to get Riverton within two at 3-1.
Kelly Walsh added two more goals in the 66th and 78th minuted to run away from the Lady Wolverines.
"We were able to control the ball for a good portion of the game, but we could not generate shots. We have been doing some really good things, but can put it all together.
And, the shots we had, we could not finish," Santee said.
The Lady Wolverines will close out their home season against Rock Springs.
The Monday evening varsity match will begin at 5 p.m. with seniors Karissa Kister, Vanessa Nells and Baylee Stafford slated to be recognized before the match.
