EPHRAIM—Snow College women’s soccer team continues to be stiff competition for their opponents, playing three games in a week and only allowing their enemies a single goal between them all.

This week, the Lady Badgers battled Western Wyoming Community College (WWCC) for the second time this season on Tuesday, Sept. 26. They finished out the week against Utah State University-Eastern (USE) on Friday and Saturday at home.

The Lady Badgers made it look effortless in their 6-1 win against WWCC, just like they did their first time battling them, on Sept. 5, when they locked in a 4-0 shutout against the Wyoming school.

The first goal of the rematch game was scored by Snow sophomore Emily Adams in the 26th minute, assisted by freshman Sophie Stewart.

She was followed seven minutes later by sophomore Nicole Jenkins. Sophomore Madelyn Graham kept the pace by scoring the team’s third goal, with the assistance of sophomore Allison Beeston, not long after.

Western Wyoming interrupted Snow’s dominance only once, by scoring their first and only goal in the 43rd minute.

Snow answered with a goal just one minute later, when Stewart hit the net, assisted by Nicole Jenkins.

Freshman Savannah VanOrden took over from there for her teammates, scoring the last two goals, with assistance on one of them from Snow’s Angela Clayton.

Friday’s game was an easy success against USE. After 52 minutes of goal absent time, freshman Nicole Hadlock scored the Badgers first goal of the game in the 53rd minute. Not too long after, Stewart hit the net for the second and final goal in the 67th minute.

The Lady Badgers never even let USE score once, ending the game with a 2-0 shutout victory.

Saturday’s game was similar to Friday’s, with the first goal coming late in the game when, with the assistance of Stewart, Nicole Hadlock scored in the 49th minute.

Hadlock then finished the scoring for the day when she hit the net for Snow’s second and final goal of the game, ending it with yet another Badger 2-0 shutout.

Nine of the Lady Badgers’ games this season have been victories. They have only two ties to break their winning streak, which is currently three consecutive wins.

The Lady Badgers will be battling the College of Southern Nevada at home tomorrow and Saturday.
