No. 1 Lewis-Palmer rolls in 4A girls' soccer opener
MONUMENT - No. 1 seeded Lewis-Palmer girls’ soccer team showed why it received the top seed in Class 4A girls' soccer on Tuesday afternoon at a cold Don Breese Stadium.
The Rangers defeated Skyview 11-0. The game concluded after the first half due to the mercy rule. Rangers sophomore Kourtney Guetlein scored six goals, leaving little doubt who would win the game.
“It was pretty lucky on my part,” Guetlein said. “It was a team effort. I didn’t take the ball all the way down myself, I was just the one there.”
The score may have been higher, but the Rangers continued to find themselves guilty of offsides. They were called for the penalty 10 times in the half.
If there was any doubt that Lewis-Palmer would prevail, it went away with 10 minutes to go in the first half when L-P coach Ian Wale took seven of his starters out and had them run laps around the track to stay in shape.
“We worked hard to get the No. 1 seed and the first round is a reward for that,” Wale said. “We’ve got to rekindle some of the form that we had in the regular season, from now on the games are going to get tough.”
Laura Regnier, Emily Dunston, Shelby Howard, Noelle Limbird and Lindsey Ryals all notched goals for the Rangers.
