Ken Kurtz/Spectrum Photography Gering senior midfielder Ty Romey defends against Scottsbluff’s Ben Rodriguez in a 3-1 loss to the Bearcats at Laners Memorial Soccer Complex in Scottsbluff on Tuesday. 
The Gering boys’ soccer team let one get away, edged rival Scottsbluff Bearcats, 3-1, at Landers Memorial Soccer Complex in Scottsbluff Tuesday night.

The loss hands the Bulldogs its ninth loss on the season with 15 matches played overall, who likely expected a tug-o-war from the Cats, who suffered a 3-1 loss in the Greater Nebraska Athletic Conference on April 9.

Gering Head Coach Justin Clark said he was pleased with Bulldogs performance. “Obviously, I would have preferred the win, but we did many things well, and we can use this match to get better. I’m very happy with the way we’re playing right now.”

Senior Javier Campos accounted for Gering’s only goal in the first half, countered by Scottsbluff’s Eseah Ingram, who scored one goal, and Patrick Madden with his two goals.

Gering’s Brent Barge had two shots with one on goal, Ty Romey one shot with one on goal, and Campos had three shots overall, and two on goal.

Defensively, Bulldog goalie Christ Bartow had five saves, against the Bearcats’ eight shots on goal, while Bearcat goalie Brady Sindt, had an equal number of saves, allowing only the one score. And, the teams equaled each other on corner kicks with five apiece.

Scottsbluff traveled to Torrington on April 20, while Gering will meet Cheyenne Central on the road Monday.

Meanwhile, the Gering girls’ soccer team suffered the same fate as the boys, falling 4-1 to the Bearcats at Landers Tuesday.

The Bulldog ladies, now with a 7-7 overall, were looking for payback after already being defeated twice by Scottsbluff, blanked 2-0 last month, and 5-2 earlier.

In the match Tuesday, Gering was able to manage one score in the first period, while the Bearcats scored two goals per half. Scottsbluff improves to 8-4 overall.

The Scottsbluff girls had 22 shots overall, with 16 on goal, and four corners. Gering, on the other hand, had 10 shots overall, including six on and goal, and one corner.

With the District tournament in view, the Bulldog girls have two matches left on their regular season schedule. They will host Campbell County on April 23, Saturday, at 2 p.m., then Cheyenne South on April 26, Tuesday in another home match starting at 6 p.m.

The Bearcat girls will have played Torrington on April 21, Thursday, at home.
