(Fremont County, WY) – The final week of the high school soccer season is here. After Lander concluded the regular season with two wins against Lyman and Mountain View, Lander secured state tournament bids after being in the top four in their conference this season.
Class 3A doesn’t do a regional tournament meaning the conference games throughout the season were more significant and more critical. The 3A West girls had multiple tiebreaking scenarios with Lander, Green River, and Mountain View. The Lady Tigers in most possibilities of tiebreakers would have won them a three seed although, for Lander, they did not need to go there because of the wins against Lyman and Mountain View last Thursday and Friday. Mountain View sat in the fifth spot heading into this week but split their games this week against Lander and Pinedale while Green River fell to both Cody and Powell. Mountain View advances to state as a four-seed while Green River’s season ended.
The Lady Tigers now will take on Douglas in the first round of the 3A State Soccer in Green River at 2 p.m. at Lincon Middle School. The Lady Tigers were runner-ups last season but won the state title in 2021 and will look to make it to the title game again.
