THS girls still seeking first win after 0-3 weekend


TORRINGTON – The Torrington High School girls went winless over three-match weekend.

On Thursday, the Lady Blazers fell 4-1 to the Rawlins Lady Outlaws.

All the scoring was done in the first half of play, and it didn’t take long for Rawlins to find the back of the net.

Less than five minutes into the match, the Lady Outlaws struck first, and they added two additional goals to take a 3-0 lead 34 minutes into the opening half.

A minute later, the Lady Blazers sophomore Kameron Stitt netted Torrington’s first goal of the season in the 35th minute.

Two minutes later, the Lady Outlaws pushed their lead back to three where it stayed for the final 43 minutes of the match.

The next day, Riverton blanked Torrington 3-0, scoring a pair of goals in the first half with the final goal coming midway through the second half.

On Saturday, the Blazers fell 2-1 to the Lander Valley Lady Tigers.

Lander scored once in each half, but with five seconds left in the match, the Lady Tigers were called for a foul in the box, allowing Torrington to have a penalty kick.

Stitt connected on the shot for her second goal of the weekend.

“I was very pleased with the way the team has played this past weekend. It was three tough games in a row, and we saw improvement from one game to the next,” coach Dave Cummings said. “It just shows the character and the desire this team has.”

The Lady Blazers (0-7 overall and 0-2 in the 3A East Conference) are scheduled to host Scottsbluff, Neb. at 6 p.m. Thursday at Old Wiseman Field.

“Scottsbluff will be another challenge for us and looking forward to it,” Cummings said.
