Boys' season starts 3-1 at Worland


March 27, 2019

While the first game wasn’t the outcome they wanted, the Green River High School boys soccer team came home with three wins after losing their game of the season.

“We were still trying to figure out where everyone fits in,” head soccer coach Chris Bieber said about the first game.

The boys traveled to Worland to take part in a season-starting tournament. Their first matchup was against Riverton, who handed the Wolves their first loss of the season in a 3-1 effort. Bieber said he wasn’t happy with that start, but described it as an early learning experience for his team. Afterward, the Wolves turned around and won their next three games.

The Wolves were able to shut out both Newcastle and Rawlins 3-0, and finished strong in a 6-2 effort against Evanston’s JV team. Bieber said allowing only five goals and scoring 13 throughout the tournament was a great statistic to start off on.

The Wolves will get a break this weekend, allowing them to prepare for their first conference game of the season against their rivals, the Rock Springs Tigers April 4. The teams are scheduled to meet at the Rock Springs Junior High School Field at 5 p.m., but the game could switch to a contest at Wolves Stadium.

Bieber said the extra practice will help prepare the Wolves and believes the team will have a better idea of what positions the players will be best suited for. Bieber said he’s expecting fierce competition from the Tigers next week, but said the Wolves will be ready for them.
