The best laid plans of mice and men they are a changing. Such is the case with this week’s soccer schedule as an anticipated game of Gering/Scottsbluff boys game was once again postponed. The Gering boys did play Torrington on Tuesday evening, getting a 2-0 win in their only game of the week.

Nic Bibb drew first blood with a goal in the first period with 5:59 left in the first half. Ty Romney quickly followed that up with a goal of his own with 4:28 left in the half, Brent Barge is credited with an assist on the Romney goal. The two goals were enough to win the game against the Trailblazers. Gering had a total of 10 shots with 3 on goal, Torrington had 7 shots with 4 on goal. Gering goalie Chris Bartow had 4 saves.

Gering Coach Justin Clark said “These kids are starting to come together as a group and play good soccer right now. I am very proud of the effort. This is a team obviously earlier in the year that we struggled a lot with. To come back and get a great win, especially on senior night is good.” Gering is now 4-10 on the year.
Scottsbluff played at Torrington on Friday with a 2-1 win over the Blazers. TJ Albright and Patrick Madden each earned one goal against Torrington; Eseah Ingram got an assist credited to him. Goalie Matt Mickey had 6 saves to help Scottsbluff win the game.

Scottsbluff played the Thunderbirds of Cheyenne East on Saturday and came away with a shootout win. The game ended in regulation with a 1-1 tie. Scottsbluff’s lone goal was scored by TJ Albright assisted by I. Nuland-Bowman. The 5-4 shootout at the end of the game left Scottsbluff on top for the win.
Scottsbluff is now 7-6 on the season and 2-4 in their district. At this time Gering and Scottsbluff are set to dual on Thursday night at Memorial Stadium in Gering at 5 p.m.
