Reivers Fall 1-0 to Laramie County CC
Council Bluffs, IA - Iowa Western Women's Soccer picked up its first loss on the year Saturday afternoon. The Reivers fell 1-0 to NSCAA 6th ranked Laramie County Community College.
HOW IT HAPPENED: The Reivers battled and held LCCC scoreless until the 72nd minute when Laramie's All-American forward, Jemma House, crossed a ball into the box for Nikita Woods to finish. Iowa Western had opportunities to score in both halves. In the first half, Amelia Fullmer beat the LCCC defense to a ball in the box, but she ended up on the ground. In the second half, Sara Paez touched a ball past the defensive line and took a shot on goal that was saved by the goalkeeper. Eva Castaño also got into some dangerous spots with the ball at her feet. Iowa Western had six corner kicks as well, but couldn't find the back of the net. Sophomore goalkeeper, Rebecca Jenson, came up with a couple of huge saves for the Reivers.
QUOTES: "I was very proud of the effort today. We had less than 18 hours to recover after a double overtime match yesterday. This was also our third match in four days and Laramie is a very good team," said Coach Adam Sanchez. "We had our chances to score, but we just weren't quite as sharp technically today. Several of our girls played more than 90 minutes yesterday and their legs were a little heavy. We did feel like Amelia was fouled in the box in the first half, but that is out of our control. These two matches in Rochester really challenged us to play at a higher level. We hope to see Monroe CC and Laramie at the national tournament in Florida later this year."
NOTES & NUMBERS: The Reivers move to 4-1 on the year, but are still 3-0 in conference play.
UP NEXT: The Reivers return to conference play on Tuesday, September 6th against Iowa Central in Fort Dodge, IA. The match will be played at 2:00PM. Iowa Western will host Scott CC next Saturday at the Reiver Sports Complex at 2:00PM. The matches can be viewed live at www.njcaatv.com/iwcc. Match updates can be found on Twitter at @ReiverWSoccer.
