CASPER — Lady Red Devils soccer joins Red Devils soccer on the road this weekend, as the varsity and junior varsity squads travel to Casper to make up games originally scheduled for March 22 and 23. The good news, as previously reported, is the Casper schools will make the return trip to Evanston, in an agreement among the schools’ activities and athletics directors.

At one time, it was believed, at least for the Lady Red Devils, they would face Natrona County and Kelly Walsh on the home fields of the two Casper schools, but the postponed games stood a good chance of being played at a neutral site. The equitable arrangement from the activities directors in effect swapped schedules, so the Evanston schools will have the opportunity to face NC and KW in Evanston on April 19 and 20, when the Red Devils were scheduled to host, with the Lady Red Devils headed to Casper.

The girls will face a Lady Trojans team that has struggled somewhat, and the number two-ranked team in Class 4A in the Natrona County Fillies. NC was number one, before getting knocked down a peg in their first loss of the season to the new top-ranked Lady Plainsmen of Laramie. The Fillies are the only West Conference team ranked in the top five, which shapes up this way:

1. Laramie Lady Plainsmen

2. Natrona County Fillies

3. Cheyenne East Lady Thunderbirds

4. Cheyenne Central Lady Indians

5. Gillette Lady Camels

The Green River Lady Wolves were just outside the top five, receiving 12 points to rank sixth, followed by the Lady Tigers of Rock Springs with nine points in seventh place, the Lady Wolverines of Riverton with six points in eighth place, and Evanston and Sheridan tied for ninth, each receiving a single fifth place vote good for three points in the WyoPreps.com Coaches and Media poll.

The 4A East Conference is even more dominant, as far as the current rankings dictate, with all of the top five comprised of the East Conference member schools. The boys’ rankings only included the top five, and not the “also receiving votes” designation. From voting taking place on April 4, the top five ranking was as follows

1. Cheyenne East Thunderbirds

2. Gillette Camels

3. Laramie Plainsmen

4. Cheyenne Central Indians

5. Sheridan Broncs

As far as standings going into the week, with some weekday games scheduled in addition to the weekend, the girls appeared this way, according to WyoPreps.com:

This weekend in Casper represents a great opportunity for both the Lady Red Devils and Red Devils to gain some ground in standings, points and rankings. Both coaching staffs remained upbeat, and expressed their excitement about battling the Casper schools. Look for results and accompanying stories from the weekend in Tuesday’s Uinta County Herald.

Both soccer teams will be at home next Friday, April 12, hosting Rock Springs in a 4A West Conference doubleheader, with the girls game scheduled for 3 p.m., followed up with the guys’ match-up at 5 p.m.
