LARAMIE, Wyo. - The University of Wyoming women's soccer team concludes its impressive spring season, 4-2-1, with the annual Alumni Game on Sunday. The match will take place at 1 p.m. MT in the Indoor Practice Facility. The Cowgirls notched 17 goals during the spring with redshirt freshman Candace Sciberras leading the team with three goals.
On April 12 the Cowgirls traveled to Lincoln, Neb., for two matches against Nebraska and South Dakota State. UW fell in its first match against Nebraska, 2-1, with freshman Kayla Cryer scoring the lone goal. The Cowgirls defeated South Dakota State in penalty kicks after ending regulation tied 3-3.
"The spring was challenging and productive overall and we were happy with the outcomes," UW assistant coach Bob Casper said. "We were able to gain some wins and score some great goals in our matches. The one major sign of progress that we saw is that we have scored in every single game we've played, and defensively we've were able to post three shutouts."
On March 29, Wyoming hosted two games in the IPF against Northern Colorado and Colorado School of Mines. UW defeated Northern Colorado, 1-0, with transfer Shaina Ashouri scoring her first goal with the Cowgirls. UW continued its winning streak against Colorado School of Mines as freshman Kaitlyn Lomsnes notched a goal for the victory. The following Saturday UW continued with a match against CSU-Pueblo at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex. The Cowgirls dominated with a 6-0 win. Sciberras and sophomore Brooklyn Chambers notched two goals each during the match. Redshirt freshman Kimmy Burbank and sophomore Laurel Ramer added a goal each.
"We are finishing with the Alumni Game and are excited to continue to work on some loose ends on the field," Casper added. "We are also happy that we have had so many alums confirm their attendance. These games are a great blend of soccer, memories of past years being shared, and a sendoff for the team heading into summer."
