CHS soccer team finds hard go against 4A opponents

Sun Advocate sports reporter

It is a tough preseason schedule for any soccer team. For a team that has only one senior, a couple of juniors and two inexperienced goalies, these first games are a real trial by fire experience. The last two games have been against 4A schools loaded with seniors. The latest game on Thursday had the Lady Dinos facing Salem Hills. The end result was a 10-0 loss.

It might seem like this is enough to discourage a squad, but Coach Keith Palmer is still optimistic about what he is seeing on the field. His starting senior goalie was out before the season even started and sophomore Ashley Noyes has had to try and learn the position quickly. Junior Jill Malone is also spending time in front of the net.

Palmer isn't dwelling on the scores right now, he is watching the improvements he is seeing on the field each time his team suits up. They have been spending a lot of time working on offense against defense, knowing when and where to pass and how to move the ball up field. Each game he detects a change for the better.

On Thursday the damage was done mainly in the first half of the game. In the second period, Carbon only allowed one score and Palmer watched his team's confidence grow as the scoreless minutes piled up in the half. Noyes made a great stop in the final minutes of play as Salem came down on a break away.

Carbon has a goalie coach lined up to work with the two inexperienced goalies starting on Monday. They have had one session with her up until now and Palmer saw some great strides after just one lesson.

The Lady Dinos face Manti on the road on Tuesday and have a home game against yet another 4A school, Payson, on Thursday. Region action begins next week on the road against highly ranked Park City.
