The Tanagers will also be home next week at 4 p.m. Tuesday against Harrisburg and at 6 p.m. next Friday against Huron. In what Coach Dave LaCombe described as â�?�?a very disappointing weekend of soccer matches,â�? Vermillion tied Sturgis and lost to Belle Fourche as the Tanagers made a trip to the Black Hills for the second straight weekend. Against Sturgis the Tanagers opened with two early goals from Hannah Nehlich-Arobba and Sophie Nehlich-Arobba, but after that the game turned into a defensive struggle.�? Sturgis outshot the Tanagers, 4-1, and managed the two tying goals as the game ended at 2-2.�? Katie Walsey had 10 saves in goal for Vermillion. Megan Bottlolfson scored the gameâ�?�?s first goal at Belle Fourche, giving Vermillion a short-lived lead.�? â�?�?Belle Fourche was definitely putting a lot of pressure on us,â�? LaCombe said, and the Lady Broncs emerged from their early deficit to gain a 5-1 victory. LaCombe noted his Vermillion club had only one substitute available for both games in the Hills while both opponents were deep on their benches.
