GILLETTE – The Torrington High School soccer teams picked up a pair of road wins on Tuesday afternoon in Gillette against Class 4A Campbell County High School.
In a rescheduled match from the beginning of the season, the Blazer boys scored a 5-1 win over the Camels.
Torrington led 1-0 at half, but the visitors blew the match open over the final 40 minutes with four additional goals.
No stats were available from the match.
The win moved the Blazers to 5-2-2 on the season.
Due to a scheduling conflict with the Campbell County girls’ varsity team, the Lady Blazers ended up playing the Lady Camel junior varsity squad, and Torrington came away with a 7-0 victory.
“We had a good match,” THS coach Dave Cummings said. “The girls showed up and were ready to play.”
Torrington senior Morgan Bates got the Lady Blazers on the scoreboard early.
Torrington was able to build on the early lead for the remainder of the game, and a total of five different Lady Blazers found the back of the net in the victory.
Senior Kameron Stitt had three goals to complete the hat trick, while freshman Kayla Watson, senior Jenesssa Derby and sophomore Jade Brothwell also added one goal apiece.
“We are in a good position going into our match against Buffalo at the end of this week,” Cummings said. “It’s building off three consecutive wins, and it gives the girls the opportunity to work from the position of strength.”
The win moves the Lady Blazers to 5-4 on the season, and the team is riding a three-game winning streak as Torrington returns to 3A East Conference play on Friday, hosting Buffalo (5-3-1).
“I fully expect our defense to be much stouter than it was up there. We had a very solid half when we played them up there, and then we ran into issues in several different locations up and down the field,” Cummings said. “The girls have learned a lot and have been training well. I fully expect a different outcome this weekend.”
