Tanager soccer faces tough St. Thomas More By Parker Knox
Sports Writer â�?�?I knew this was going to be a tough game for us,â�? coach Dave LaCombe said about his Vermillion girlsâ�?�? soccer teamâ�?�?s date at St. Thomas More last Friday night, and he was right. The top-rated Lady Cavaliers handed the Tanagers a 6-0 loss in Rapid City as the Vermillion girls made the first of two consecutive West River road trips. LaCombe was missing three starters who didnâ�?�?t make the trip to St. Thomas More, and he�? assigned Katie Wasley�? to her first varsity start as goalie. â�?�?Katie did an outstanding job in goal,â�? LaCombe said.�? â�?�?They compiled 18 shots on goal, and we allowed only six goals.�? We played better in the second half, allowing only two goals, so I was pleased with our defense.â�? Vermillion returns to the Black Hills for a Friday night game at Sturgis and a day game Saturday at Belle Fourche.�? Next week the Tanagers finally get to play their home opener Tuesday evening against Sioux Falls Christian, and they will also be home next Friday night against West Central.
