The Lady Raiders soccer team lost two games on the road this past week, one each in Omak and Liberty Bell.

Lake Roosevelt lost 4-2 in a non-league game against Omak on Thursday, the loss largely a result of penalties. Three penalties against LR led to three goals for Omak.

"Overall I believe our team outplayed them and had control the majority of the game," said Head Coach Casey Moore, "but part of learning soccer is how to use your body legally."

Coach Moore highlighted some of her players from that game: "Players who stood out this game included Loryn 'Lomo' Moore, who scored both goals for LR, and Hannah Wapato, who hustled at midfield. Hailey Whalawitsa had her best game this season vs. Omak but, sadly, suffered an injury the last two minutes of the game."

On Saturday the Lady Raiders lost 7-0 against the Liberty Bell Mountain Lions, who "exemplified sportsmanship and played well," Moore said.

Raider Loryn Moore suffered an injury at the beginning of the game. "We were down four starters but our team stepped up and had their best game in terms of communication," said the coach. "Lake Roosevelt hustled the entire game, especially defenders Maya Milk and midfielder Hannah Wapato."

The Lady Raiders soccer team's next game will be at 11 a.m. this Saturday, Oct. 15, at home on Ludolph Field at the former middle school in Grand Coulee, where they'll take on the Tonasket
