Hail, hail the 
gang’s all here

Two soccer games for 
Laurent Perrier women

The old gang got together for a couple of women’s soccer games on Saturday in Ketchum.

They were pleasantly surprised to find they didn’t look so old. How it felt was a completely different matter—especially the next day.

The local Laurent Perrier women’s team hosted an All-Star squad from the Boise area at Atkinson Park and parlayed two gritty games into a 2-2 tie and 2-1 victory.

Laurent Perrier coach Rob Butterfield remarked (with only slight exaggeration) "There was magnificent play from every player."

In the opener, Boise’s Katy Derby broke through to score first.

Ketchum answered immediately. Casey Hanrahan pulled down a chip by Katherine Rixon and fired it past the keeper to even the score 1-1.

Never-say-die halfback Lia Johnson headed the ball to Becky Kerns, who netted Ketchum’s go-ahead goal in the second half, but Boise’s Cristle Wallin punched in the equalizer to salvage a 2-all tie.

In the second match, after a scoreless first half, Derby’s goal put Boise on the scoreboard first. On the ensuing kickoff, Kerns ran down a long ball by Rixon and slotted the ball to tie and keep Boise from gaining any momentum off their goal and tip it Ketchum’s way.

Minutes later, wily forward Kelly Kerns ripped a beautiful ball in the far right corner for the go-ahead goal.

Led by sweeper Jenni Conrad and stopper Margo Ros, LP’s defense held Boise at bay to notch a 2-1 win.

Soccer aficionado John Kirby remarked, "I thought Boise was going to win because they have some great forwards. Ketchum came back great in the second half."

Also suiting up for Laurent Perrier were goalie Kelly Haisley, Lynette Kerns, Vicki Johnston, Tizz Miller, Jody Zarkos, Amy Olson, Kyle Pribbish and Annie Stout.

The games were officiated by JoJo McNeal and Steve Keefer.
