The Shut Out

Jeff Evans reported from the Girls Varsity Soccer team's Saturday September 26 game against Anderson.

Just seconds after the initial kickoff, the Cowboys swiftly moved the ball down the field just outside the right side of the Anderson penalty area. From about 25 yards out, Senior Forward, Emily Rush collected the ball, shot, and scored over the out stretched arms of the stunned Redskins Keeper to give Wyoming a 1-0 lead. Wyoming Girls Varsity Soccer Head Coach, Lauren Gruber, had to be pleased with the high level of energy and quick results the Cowboys posted versus her former high school Alma Mater. Just moments later, Junior Forward, Annabelle Steiner sent a strong, straight, shoulder height, corner kick into the box. Timing her run perfectly, Junior Midfielder, Jasmine Evans, glanced a full speed running header inside the near post past the Anderson Defense for the second Cowboy goal of the match.

Just moments after the second half kickoff, the Cowboys continued to control possession and drove the ball down the left side of the pitch.  Freshman Forward, Elly McCullumsmith played a great ball into Junior Forward, Casey Jervier. With her back to the goal, Jervier received the ball with one slight precise touch to her right and fired a laser of a shot with her left foot into the back of net making the score Cowboys 3, Redskins Nil.  Then about half way thru the second half, Jervier gathered the ball around midfield in front of the Anderson bench.  Showing her dynamic ability, Jervier sprinted down the right side, dribbling the ball, while outrunning the Redskin back-line, to get a nice final touch and finished her shot past the Anderson Keeper for her second goal of match.  Wyoming's overall defense was stellar and helped Junior Keeper, Lauren Metz, earn her first shut out victory of the season as the Cowboys won 4-0.  The Wyoming fans had a lot to cheer about as they were treated to some great teamwork and highly skilled play by the Cowboys !!!
