Lady Rangers Earn First Win of the Year Against Lyndon

LYNDON–After a scoreless first half, Tyrah Urie picked up right where she left off last season, netting both goals in the Lady Rangers 2-1 win over the Vikings on Wednesday."We played well at times," said coach Brad Urie, who was happy to get the win, but not one hundred percent pleased with his team's performance on the field.The first half was a back and forth forty minutes of soccer with neither team getting the upper hand.Early in the second, Urie netted her first goal of the season, a header off of a pass from Hannah Leroux."Hannah, Ashley Locke and Sarah Burnham did a nice job for us in the middle," said Urie.Mikayla Lyndes tied the game for the Vikings before Urie struck again with fifteen minutes left in regulation with the game winner, this time with Drew Neal getting the assist.Jordan Cowles had four saves for Lake Region while the Lady Rangers directed fifteen shots at Lyndon's Emily Doty.While the win is nice, coach Urie says his team needs to maintain a steady level of play for a full eighty minutes of action.Simply put, Urie said, "We need to be more consistent."Lake Region will strive for that consistent effort on Saturday morning when they take on Richford in their home opener at 11:00.
