A September of Soccer

Our sincere apologies to the hard-working Wyoming girls’ varsity soccer team and coaching staff for the lack of production by your designated Roundup reporters.  Our love of watching you play has not transferred to writing promptly about your efforts.  Here is our attempt at catching up along with a renewed dedication to be more attentive to our duties as this season heads toward your long run in the State tournament!

Taylor – September 9 – Win 6-1
After a tough loss to Indian Hill, the Cowboys were looking for a win and they found one on the road at Taylor.  Switching to grass for the first time this season, the team handled it well and routed Taylor 6-1.  Kayla Hampton, Ellie Mccullumsmith, Chelsea Davis and Jasmine Evans all contributed to the score.  Lauren Metz and her stalwart back line held Taylor to few shots and one hard fought goal.

Summit Country Day – September 12 – Loss 0-2
The Cowboys finished a four game road trip against the talented and tough Lady Knight team.  The Cowboys worked well in the first half.  Casey Jervier had a score stolen by Summit’s quick thinking back who sprinted to cover after the goalie came out to challenge.  After the scoreless first half where possession was divided on both sides of the field, Summit’s quick forwards broke through and forced their first goal.   The Lady Knights broke through again minutes later for a second score and played fantastic defense to hold Wyoming scoreless.

Mariemont – September 16 – Tie 0-0

The Cowboys hosted the Lady Warriors as they hoped to stay in the race for the CHL title.  A preseason scrimmage at Mariemont resulted in a 2-0 victory, so the Cowboys felt they had an early read on the Lady Warriors.  Mariemont brought their A game with them and kept  Wyoming’s scorers in check.  On the other side of the ball, Lauren Metz continued her great rookie season and worked with her back line to keep Mariemont’s scoring opportunities to a minimum.

Madeira – September 24 – Loss 1-2

The Cowboys hit the road again to challenge their CHL rival, the Lady Amazons of Madeira.
Kayla Hampton sat out for the contest with an injury, so Coach Gruber had to make some adjustments in the lineup and formation to minimize the loss.  Madeira struck first with a strong goal, but Casey Jervier shook off a few defenders to bring the score even at half.  The contest continued back and forth until Madeira scored their second and winning goal.  It was a heart breaking defeat for the Cowboys.
