A busy week for Green River soccer


Over the course of the 2015 season, the Green River High School boy’s soccer team has shown flashes of brilliance and proved they can match up against anyone in the state. The team defeated powerhouse Jackson, and lost a close 2-1 game at home against second-ranked Casper-Natrona.

The team once again showed just how good it can be last Friday again against Natrona. The Wolves took a 2-0 lead late into the game thanks to two goals from senior standout Tanner Trumble. Unfortunately, it was not enough as Mustang freshman Danny Diaz scored three times in the last fourteen minutes to give Natrona a 3-2 win.

“We started the game really well; scoring the first goal and holding them scoreless at halftime and then coming out and half and getting another goal. We were pumped up,” head coach Chris Bieber said.

After the three goals by Diaz, Bieber said his team needs to be more consistent with just staying in front of a dribbler.

Green River (7-6-1, 3-4 4A West) had hoped to avenge the loss Saturday with a game at Kelly Walsh, but the game was cancelled due to inclement weather. The game has been rescheduled for today in Casper.

“Kelly Walsh canceling definitely did not give us any favors for the upcoming week with all of our senior events happening, but we will get three wins and end our season on a high note,” Bieber said.

Green River will travel to take on Evanston Thursday.

The Wolves defeated Evanston 1-0 earlier this season at home. Green River will wrap up the regular season Friday at home against Riverton.

The senior night game will take place at 5 p.m.

Bieber did not mince his words when asked what it would take to be successful as the regular season winds down.

“Play Green River Soccer; plain and simple,” he said.
