Ladycats soccer coach Tyler Laity said before his team’s game against first place Whittell that his players were looking to make a statement to the league. The statement that his team ended up making however was not quite what Laity had in mind. The Ladycats lost to Whittell 7-0 on Oct. 9. in a game that most coaches would like to forget. Though they kept it close by halftime at 2-0, the Ladycats mental mistakes in the second half led to several goals on themselves.
Like any good team however, the Ladycats put the ugly loss behind them and rebounded strong, posting their own seven goal victory over visiting Yerington the next day on Oct. 10. The loss and win brought the Ladycats to 5-4 overall after the weekend in league play, leaving them currently in fourth place in their division.
The team will next head out onto the road to take on North Tahoe on Oct. 17 for a 4 p.m. game before heading to Incline the next day for another 4 p.m. game.
