WORLAND- The Worland High School girls soccer team defended home turf once again, while also putting on another offensive display as they defeated Cody 5-3 Friday afternoon.

Unlike the 6-0 win against Lander last week, the Lady Warriors were in a fight from start to finish. The Lady Fillies were the first to score with a goal by Hannah Bailey in the 19th minute.

After that goal the Lady Warriors seemed to take it personal as they would score the matches next three goals. Casey Wassum in the 23rd minute, Megan Molitor in the 27th minute and Emily Keller in the 29th minute.

The Lady Fillies weren't going to back down as just before the end of the first half Genevieve Sauers kicked a goal at the 38-minute mark.

In the second half Keller knocked in her second goal of the game in the 52nd minute, to give her team a 4-2 lead.

Also in the second half, senior Aubrey Goodrick made big time saves as Cody aggressively fought to get back in the match.

The final seven minutes of the match proved to be the most dramatic as Cody's McKayla Moss scored in the 73rd minute bringing her team within a goal of knotting up the match. A minute later the Lady Fillies for the briefest of moments tied the game but the goal was called off due to the ball not being set on a direct kick.

Then a few minutes later the Lady Warriors looked as if they had sealed the game but that goal was also taken off the board as they were called for offsides. But in extra time of the second half Hannah Ozmon scored to put her team up 5-3 securing a victory for her team.

After the game coach Daniel Warren commented on her team's performance by saying, "I liked how they were seeing each other, finding each other, and the movement we had offensively was really good. The transition from offense to defense was good as well. They could have been more aggressive but they still did well covering for each other."

Warren also added how she liked the mental toughness of this team, "After the first goal they rallied around Aubrey and took back the game."

The next game for the Lady Warriors will be at home today at 2 p.m. against Buffalo.
