Wood River girls are gaining ground

On soccer pitch

Express Staff Writer

After beating Buhl 7-0 last Tuesday the Wood River girls’ varsity soccer team hit .500 for the first time this season.

The mark was short lived, after a 6-0 shutout to Century of Pocatello on Thursday, but the break-even mark was important for two reasons.

First of all, it shows the Wolverines are playing more consistent soccer and it gives the team some momentum as the regular-season winds down and the post season looms.

In 14 games this season, 3A Wood River (5-6-3) has scored 47 goals and allowed 48, but bigger-school 4A and 5A opponents account for 39 of the goals.

When playing within its own 3A division, in contrast, the Wood River defense has surrendered just nine goals for a .64 gpg. average.

The team’s leading scorer is senior striker Charlotte Gourlay with 16 goals. She now has 32 goals in three seasons and has moved into fourth place on the school’s career scoring list.

Sophomore Margii Driscoll is next best with 11 goals, including seven in the last three games she has played. Rebecca Schwartzenberger has tallied 7 goals thus far this season.

All three players found the back of the net—twice each—in a 7-0 whitewash of Buhl last Tuesday. Hilary Field chipped in with a single score as Wood River stretched its unbeaten streak to four games.

Wood River has never lost to Buhl, going 11-0 all-time and outscoring the Tribe 52-1. But it’s a different story against Century. The 4A Diamondbacks are 4-0 against Wood River and have outscored Hailey 22-0 in the four meetings.

Wood River hosted Twin Falls for "Senior Night" on Tuesday, Oct. 7 in Hailey.

Suiting up for their final home game were seniors Kaylie Aaker, Kim Brown, Nicole Carlsen, Kate Elgee, Charlotte Gourlay, Danielle Maniere and Rebecca Schwartzenberger.

The final three Wolverine games are on the road. Hailey travels to Idaho Falls to play Hillcrest and Bonneville on Saturday and takes on the Cutthroats on Tuesday, Oct. 14.


JV beats Century 3-1

The Wood River junior varsity collected its biggest trophy of the season, bagging a 3-1 win over Century Thursday.

"I was very happy," coach Greg Gvozdas said. "We came out and played with a lot of intensity."

Tara Cappell, Lauren Eder and Kaitlin Gasenica scored Wood River’s goals. The score by Century was only the second time Wood River has allowed a goal this season.

Wood River (10-0-1) travels to Declo Thursday and finishes off an outstanding season in Idaho Falls Saturday.
