The 11th-ranked Laramie County Community College women’s soccer team
hosted Western Nebraska Community College on Sept. 8 for their first conference game of the season. The Golden Eagles took the victory in a shutout, 2-0.
It only took 10 minutes for LCCC’s Emi Yamamoto to find the back of the net, off an assist from Cori Mizel. LCCC maintained control of the game, but couldn’t find the right combination on offense to score another goal before the end of the half.
The Golden Eagles came out in the second half with more confidence and were able to put a great amount of pressure on the WNCC defense and goalkeeper. In the 60th minute, Iren Dahan scored the insurance goal, assisted by Brittany DeMartin. Goalkeeper Lauren Pelkey and the Golden Eagles defense only allowed the Cougars three shots for the game.
