It was all Lady Wolves in the first round of the 2015 Sweetwater Cup.

In the first match up between the two rivals April 9 at Wolves Stadium, the Green River High School girl’s were able to pick up a 3-0 victory, led by a hat trick from Lauren Hoyt.

She scored in the 18th minute, in the 38th minute on an assist from Taylor Stoeger, and in the 52nd minute on an assist from McKenzie Lucas.

Green River head coach Tracy Wyant said that going into the game they changed some things up and went with more of an offensive formation.

She said that they were looking for more people to score and that Hoyt had shown in practice that she is very offensive minded so they put her in.

“It was a very pleasant surprise,” Wyant said.

With the new offensive formation she said there was a learning curve at the start of the game, but as they the game went on they started to do really good.

“It was a good game for them,” Wyant said.

On defense, she said the team is improving and they are starting to gel and trust each other.

“They need to trust and support their teammates and they are starting to do that more,” Wyant said.



Starting Friday, Green River will host the 13-team Southwest Invitational.

The invite will take place at Wolves Stadium and the two Monroe fields and will feature four pools with round-robin play on Friday, followed by tournament action Saturday.
