Men Split, Women 0-2 Against Sheridan, Gillette

The Northwest College soccer teams were on the road last weekend against conference rivals Sheridan and Gillette, with each game holding playoff implications as the 2018 season begins to wind down.

The two teams split against Gillette, with the men holding on for a 1-0 win, while the Lady Trappers, hoping to build on a 1-1 tie against Gillette a week earlier, fell to the Lady Pronghorns 2-0.

Neither team fared well against Sheridan, with the Trappers losing 1-0 and the Lady Trappers falling 6-0, in a contest that was closer than the final score indicated.

“I wasn’t happy with the end result, but I was happy with our effort,” said NWC’s Bobby Peters, head coach of both programs. “Both teams showed they can play at that level — it’s just the minor breakdowns that we need to keep working on.”
