September 9, 2012

ORLEANS–To say Tyrah Urie is off to a good start this season would be like saying that the sun is a relatively warm place to be.
Well, much like the sun, Urie is on fire.
After scoring twice in the season opener at Lyndon, she doubled her output on Saturday, banging home four more goals in a 4-1 win over Richford, bringing her season total to six, leaving her an average of a hat-trick per game in the young season.
"Sometimes when the skill isn't good and everyone's effort stay's up, you can win some soccer games," said coach Brad Urie.

Ranger Boys’ Play Inspiring in 2-0 Loss to Peoples Academy

ORLEANS–Folks in attendance at the Lake Region-People's Academy boy's soccer game on Friday came away with a sense of how well this year's Rangers can play, as they more than held their own against a traditionally very good Wolves team in a 2-0 loss.
