Lady Plainsmen Earn Third-Place At State Soccer
The final day of the 2018 high school soccer season resulted in one trophy for Laramie High School after both teams played in the third-place match.
The Lady Plainsmen posted an overtime victory, while the Plainsmen lost in OT in Jackson.
Sekoya Romero scored the game-winning goal in the 84th minute or first half of overtime, and that propelled the Laramie girls to a 2-1 victory over Campbell County for third place in Class 4A last Saturday.
Romero scored in the 14th minute, but the Camels tied it in the 65th minute.
Laramie beat Campbell County for the third consecutive meeting after the Camels had won in the Gem City earlier this season. The Lady Plainsmen close out 2018 with an 11-7-1 overall record.
The LHS boys had the same shot at a trophy, but they lost to Green River 3-0 in overtime.
Neither team scored in regulation. The Wolves struck first in the 87th minute on a goal by Gregory Marchal. He tallied two minutes later for a 2-0 lead at halftime of the extra period. Marchal got the hat trick in the last minute of play for the final margin.
Green River beat LHS for the second straight state tournament, after a 2-0 win in the first round in 2017.
The Plainsmen conclude the season with a 10-8-2 record.
