Mt. View too much in half two
The Crook County Cowgirls played a solid first half before struggling in the second half of an 8-0 road loss to the Mountain View Cougars in a Thursday afternoon preseason soccer match.
"I think we did really well," said Crook County assistant coach Jeremy Logan. "The other team had 10 seniors on their team, and we had five freshmen making up our team and one senior. So, our girls did really well."
The Cowgirls trailed just 2-0 at the end of the first half but struggled after Mountain View made adjustments in the second half. The Cougars exploded for six second-half goals in just 31 minutes. With the new rules, soccer has an eight-goal margin of victory before games are ended, so officials called the game at the 71st minute.
"We got tired and Mountain View showed their experience," Logan said. "They were just passing around us and they capitalized with six more goals."
Logan noted that Crook County goalkeeper Lakyra Walker had 21 stops, including stopping a penalty kick.
