CHEYENNE – Faith Meredith netted three second-half goals to help the No. 10-ranked Laramie County Community College women’s soccer team to a 4-2 victory over visiting Cloud County Community College on Sunday afternoon.
“We were a little sluggish coming out,” Golden Eagles coach Jim Gardner said. “We scored in the first 10 minutes, and I thought we were going to do OK, but we flattened out.
“We played so well against Snow, and then Snow beat this team 6-0. I think the girls thought we were going to have an easy road, but we can’t think that way.”
Beyonce Robinson gave LCCC (1-0-1) a 1-0 lead with an assist from Meredith in the fourth minute.
Meredith’s first goal came on a penalty kick in the 51st minute. She also added goals in the 71st and 72nd minutes with assists from Robinson and Avery Potter.
