The season didn't start well for either Green River High School soccer team.

Both teams, taking on Cheyenne Central and Cheyenne East over the weekend, took two losses. For the boys, Cheyenne East defeated the Wolves 1-0 Friday while Central handed the team a severe 7-2 loss Saturday. For the girls, East shut the Lady Wolves out 7-0 while Central left Green River with a 5-1 win.

For the boys team, it was a combination of injuries, overlapping seasons and missing some positioning that lead to their losses, according to coach Chris Bieber.

Beiber said some of his players were competing at Districts for the GRHS Speech and Debate team, which hampered the team's ability.

Beiber said the team has six players on the injury list, which also impacted their play.

Bieber said he has a lot of returning players however and once they fine tune their teamwork, the team should improve.

"It's the little things, the fine tuning that counts," Bieber said.

The team will take on Evanston at home Tuesday. While Bieber admits it's too early in the season to predict what kind of team will travel to Green River, he said the team lost six of their starters to graduation last year.

However, he also knows the team will have to contend with some skilled mid-fielders and a striker Tuesday evening.
