WORLAND- The Worland Lady Warriors once again flexed their offensive muscles as they defeated the Riverton Lady Wolverines Tuesday afternoon 8-2, defending home turf yet again.

Fresh off her hat trick against Buffalo on Saturday sophomore Casey Wassum got the Lady Warriors rolling with the match's first goal in the fifth minute. Worland would score the next three goals, one by senior Emily Keller in the 11th minute, another from junior Brooke Seidel in the 23rd minute and the other from freshman Kendall Wright in the 34th minute.

Cydney Bradley of Riverton would finally get the Lady Wolverines on the board with a goal in the 36th minute. After that goal the Lady Warriors turned up the defense and Riverton wouldn't score for another 31 minutes.

A penalty kick by Natalie Lymburner in the 67th minute gave Riverton their second and final goal of the match.

During that cold spell for Riverton, the Lady Warriors would tack on three more goals, two from junior Hannah Ozmon in the 56th and 60th minutes and another goal from Wassum, for her second goal of the match, in the 50th minute. Senior Megan Molitor gave Worland their eighth goal in the 70th minute.

After their win against Buffalo coach Danielle Warren mentioned the defense needed work. When asked her thoughts about the defense's performance against Riverton she replied, "They did so much better, there was the one breakdown but other than that they looked a lot better and were more cohesive."

Looking ahead to Powell on Friday, coach Warren said, "defense is going to be the focus again, the offense has been excellent. So it's about improving the defense and moving Shania McGarvin back to defense is going to be huge for us. She's an experienced player who is like another coach out there."

Keeper Hannah McEndree also had a terrific game and made big save after big save.

Next up for the Lady Warriors is a Friday match at 4 p.m. against Powell, this will be the first road game for Worland.
