RANGLEY, CO—The Snow College Women’s soccer team had a successful week, which is to say, the kind of week that for them has become routine: lossless.
The Lady Badgers played successfully, 13-0, against Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC) on Thursday, Oct. 12. They then battled Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) on Saturday, Oct. 14, ending the week with another win, 2-1.
Thursday’s game against CNCC was an easy win for the Lady Badgers.
The team did an impressive job at preventing the CNCC Lady Spartans from getting the ball near the goal, but when they did, Snow sophomore goalie Hanna Johnson was there to back up her teammates every time.
CNCC had no chance, as the Lady Badgers’ teamwork was unbeatable. After scoring goal after goal using a passing strategy they have mastered, the Badgers earned an easy victory.
Earlier in the season, the Lady Badgers played the SLCC Lady Bruins twice, with results of one win and one tie. The game against SLCC last Saturday was a close call, but erased any doubt as to which team was superior.
After half an hour of scoreless game, SLCC gained first advantage in the battle when the Lady Bruins scored the first goal of the game in the 30th minute.
A tense 20 minutes later, Snow Freshman Jaycee Hafen assisted freshman Sophie Stewart in bringing the game to a tie, helping Stewart to score a crowd-pleasing header goal for in the 50th minute.
Another 15 minutes passed by before Snow’s ladies scored their second and final goal, in the 66th minute, by sophomore Nicole Jenkins.
It was a narrow victory, but the Lady Badgers pulled it together and ended the game with a victory.
“The first half was kind of hard,” said an enthusiastic Badger freshman, Haley Shroeder about the SLCC game. “We struggled getting our game together, but the second half we picked it up because we knew if we didn’t then they would win. We knew we had to work together and play a fast-paced game, so we did and we won.”
The Lady Badgers have yet to lose even one game this season. They have won 13 of their 15 games, with ties for the other two. They are currently on an impressive seven-game winning streak.
Snow will finish out the season next week with a game against Utah State University Eastern on Thursday, Oct. 19, and then against the College of Southern Nevada on Saturday, Oct. 21.
