Lady Wolves goalie Holly Hunt makes a save against a Rock Springs player Saturday morning while Zoe Turner approaches to support Hunt.

Despite playing one of their best games of the season Saturday, the Green River Lady Wolves soccer team will have to add two more in the loss column.

On Saturday, the Lady Wolves took on the Rock Springs Lady Tigers at home and lost 3-0.

"Rock Springs is a tough team," head coach Tracy Wyant said. "They have strength throughout."

One RS player the Lady Wolves had to keep a track of all the time was Alyssa Bedard, who is currently second in the state for scoring in the 4A division. Wyant said she had Zoe Turner cover Bedard and that worked pretty well.

"With Alyssa, anytime she gets away from you, she's going to score," Wyant said.

"My team played RS better than the first time around," she said.

Wyant said the Lady Wolves worked hard against RS and they played well.

"I have nothing negative to say about that game," Wyant said.

Prior to the Rock Springs game, Wyant had all of the Lady Wolves not only set personal goals for the game, but team goals. She's not sure if this made a difference in their mental preparation or not, but the team that played on Saturday is the team she wants to see play every game.

She's decided to repeat this type of mental preparation for the next two games and see how it works.

"I felt like they played really good soccer Saturday," she said.

As for last Tuesday's game against Jackson, Wyant couldn't say the same thing. They lost 5-1, but even with the loss a great moment for the team came when their one and only goal was scored. The goal was scored by JV player Sydni Sanders, who was moved up to help fill the team. It was her first varsity goal and she was excited about it.

"She was at the right spot at the right time," Wyant said.

Right now, not only is the varsity team struggling with depth on the bench, but so is the JV team. Wyant said due to injuries she had to move two JV players up to varsity so she can have 11 players. This left the JV team with only 11. This leaves the varsity team with no players to sub until the JV game is over and those players come help varsity out.

"We're definitely running without subs," she said.

The Lady Wolves will travel to take on Jackson and Evanston this weekend, and to prepare Wyant is going to try a few different line ups to see how they will work.

"I have talent," she said. "They are physical."
