Cowgirls fall 9-1 to Storm JV
Crook County finishes season with 1-12 record
October 25, 2012
The season is over.
The Crook County High School girls soccer team finished their season with a 9-1 trouncing by a strong Summit Storm JV squad.
The match, which was originally scheduled to be played on the Summit artificial-turf football field, was moved at the last minute due to a conflict with the Storm football team.
The change of fields delayed the start of the game, and disrupted warm-ups for both squads. However, Summit appeared to adjust more quickly to the change.
Playing in cold, windy conditions, the Storm team jumped out to a 3-0 halftime lead.
Less than two minutes into the second half, the Storm scored again to make the score 4-0.
However, the Cowgirls responded with a goal of their own less than five minutes into the half.
Maddie Lindburg pushed the ball past the Storm defense, then Jena Ovens raced to the ball, beat a Summit defender, and put the ball into the right hand corner of the goal.
However, that was the last time the Cowgirls would score. The Storm took control of the match, rarely letting the ball into their end of the field as they bombarded the Crook County goal with shots.
The Storm proved to be too fast, and have too many ball skills for the Cowgirls to keep up.
The Storm scored five goals in the match’s final 25 minutes as they ran away for the easy victory.
With the loss, the Cowgirls finish the season with a 1-12 overall record while going 0-10 in Intermountain Hybrid Conference play.
The Cowgirls lone victory on the year was a 4-3 win over La Pine who finished the season with a 1-12-1 mark.
