Overtime Goal Pushes Plainswomen Past #10 Laramie County CC

Sterling, Colo...

The Plainswomen soccer team got the opportunity to play against #10 nationally ranked Laramie County Community College on their home turf on Wednesday, September 15th.  Coming off of a weekend split against Trinidad and Otero, NJC was looking to capitalize against a hard team to continue their upbeat play this season.  With high stakes on this game, the Plainswomen were looking to give it their best shot at defeating a team in which they never had beat in program history.  The overtime win for NJC moves the ladies to 8-2 on the season, and 3-1 in Region IX play.  This was also the first time in Plainswomen soccer program history to beat a nationally ranked team!  Next game up for NJC will be on Saturday, September 18th at 2pm against Western Nebraska Community College at the Landers Sports Complex in Scottsbluff.
