Flying above the competition, the Lady Eagles soared to a perfect 3-0 over the last two weeks. The ladies showed quite a bit of skill playing at Salt Lake Community College and on their home field.
Playing in Salt Lake against Colorado Northwestern on Oct. 3, they won by the score of 3-1. Western Wyoming was next to fall to the ladies with a score of 2-0.
Heading in strong for the first game played at home this season, the Lady Eagles were ready for whatever Trinidad Community College had to throw at them. It was a fast paced game with the Lady Eagles coming out on top, 1-0. Ashlyn Matthews assisted Lindsey Bray in scoring the only goal of the entire game in the first half of the game.
“Both teams had opportunities to score. We had a few more but neither team could finish as strongly as we had hoped, but we got the job done. Trinidad will be one of the biggest competitors in the region,” Mashaela Farris said. The Lady Eagles now have an impressive record of 11-1-2 and hope to continue winning when they travel to Kansas to play Maplewood Community College on Thursday, Oct. 16, Johnson County Community College on Friday, Oct. 17, and Iowa Lakes Community College on Saturday, Oct. 18. The girls are currently ranked 18th in the NJCAA.
