Plainsmen Snag First 4A East Conference Victory
The Laramie Plainsmen picked up their first conference win of the season with a 4-1 victory at Cheyenne South Tuesday.
Cameron Campbell scored two goals and also had two assists. Alexis Eleuterio and Blake Moore scored Laramie’s other two goals. Moore contributed an assist, as did Paul Gonzales.
The Plainsmen led 1-0 at half and tacked on three more in the second. South’s lone goal was on an own goal by Laramie after the keeper Tanner Reidel crossed into goal with the ball on a save. That made it 2-1 LHS before the Plainsmen added the last two goals for the final margin.
Laramie improves to 3-2 on the season and 1-2 in the 4A East Conference.
They return to the pitch next Monday at #3 Cheyenne Central.
Laramie Lady Plainsmen
Despite a slow start, the Laramie Lady Plainsmen continued their hot start with a 4-0 win over South at the UW North 40 Soccer Field.
After a scoreless first half, Lindsey Meyer got the Lady Plainsmen on the board in the 48th minute. It was shot from beyond the top of the 18-yard box. The assist went to Courtney Hamilton.
Sekoya Romero scored the first of her two goals in the 57th minute. She found the back of the net off a feed from Kade Setright. Her second goal came in the 72nd minute and was assisted by Hamilton.
In-between, Allison McElwee scored off a corner kick by Paige Trent in the 60th minute.
Lady Plainsmen assistant coach Makena Cameron said the team knew they weren’t playing like they could in the first half.
“We weren’t playing our game; that wasn’t our game at all. (At) Halftime we regrouped, and second half they came out; they played their game; they possessed; they moved to the ball, won the ball and got some goals in.”
The Laramie Lady Plainsmen are 5-0 on the season and 3-0 in conference matches.
They are back in action Monday versus 5th-ranked Cheyenne Central at 5 p.m.
