Wolves seek another shot at state tournament
With two wins under their belt, the Green River High School Boys Varsity Soccer team are making strides towards a return appearance at the state soccer tournament in Sheridan.
That’s the goal head coach Chris Bieber has for his team. The team’s most recent victory, a 2-1 win over Riverton at home Friday, featured what Beiber referred to as 20 minutes of the team’s best work of the season so far, he sees a lot of work that needs to be done between now and the state tournament. Those 20 minutes occurred at the start of the game, but once the Wolves established their two goal lead over Riverton, Beiber said the team eased off of their opponents.
“There were some scary moments I hope don’t get repeated,” Beiber said.
Beiber said the team’s defense and midfield play are strong, but believes the Wolves should work more on moving the ball to their opponents’ net. He also views communication as an aspect needing improvement.
“We communicate individually, but team communication needs to be worked on,” he said.
With Green River hosting the upcoming Southwest Invitational boys soccer tournament, the Wolves will defend their championship at home. Beiber said he looks forward to watching the Wolves compete with the other teams participating, but aims to have Green River in the championship matchup.
The tournament takes place April 15-16 and features 14 3A and 4A boys soccer teams from throughout the state, including the Wolves’ rivals from Rock Springs. Action starts at 9:30 a.m. Friday with Green River taking on Pinedale.
The Wolves take to the field a second time at 2:30 p.m. against Buffalo and have one final match against Worland at 7:30 p.m.
The three games take place at Wolves Stadium.
