Lady Blazers demonstrate improvement


TORRINGTON  – The Torrington High School Lady Blazers exhibited considerable growth over the course of a weekend featuring home games against Worland on Friday, April 12 and Buffalo on Saturday.

The Lady Blazers kicked the action off in a tough matchup against top-ranked Worland with Torrington coming up short, 13-0. 

Digging deep, the Lady Blazers returned to the field to square off against the Buffalo Lady Bison less than 12 hours after playing Worland. 

While Buffalo prevailed, 7-0, the scoreboard did not reflect the Lady Blazers’ grit and determination during the game.

The Torrington offense maintained the pressure on Buffalo’s defenders, launching aggressive attacks deep into Lady Bison territory. The Lady Blazers spent significantly more time in their opponent’s side of the field on Saturday.

A solid Torrington defense kept Buffalo in check for most of the first and second halves.

“In the Buffalo game, we definitely made changes from the day before,” coach Tyler Cram said. “Our defense had more control in the backfield, creating opportunities for our players to get the ball to our forward offense. We definitely slowed down Buffalo’s attacks and shut down more plays today. Our goal this week is to continue to tune up our defense and work on getting more opportunities offensively.”


Worland established a 9-0 lead at halftime. The Lady Blazers managed to get in some good punches, however.

Sophomore Kristin Prado played goalie in the first half and tallied eight saves. Defensive hustle by juniors Kayden Tucker and Maggie Jacobson and sophomores Brooklynn McCoy and Kennedi Blevins cleared the backfield. A header by Tucker deflected an attempted shot by Worland.

The Torrington defense stepped up the intensity in the second half, holding Worland to four goals. McCoy served as goalie and made four saves. Prado and sophomores Salma Beltran and Natalie Lira cleared the back- and midfield with defensive plays.

On offense, junior Marisol Munoz broke through Worland’s defenders to make a shot on goal.


The Lady Blazer defense kept the Lady Bison offense on its toes in the first half, holding Buffalo to three goals.

Prado tallied eight saves in the first half as goalie. Beltran, Blevins, Tucker, Lira and sophomore Allie Martinez made solid defensive plays in the backfield and midfield.

Sophomore Macy Tremain delivered a shot on goal early in the first half while Tremain, Munoz and freshman Zoe Wilson led attacks into Buffalo’s territory.

Prado continued as goalie into the second half, posting seven more saves, including one on a penalty kick. Munoz found an opening in Buffalo’s defense to make a shot on goal.

The Lady Blazers hosted Scottsbluff on Tuesday, April 16. Results were not available at press time. Torrington travels to play Newcastle on April 18 with kickoff scheduled for 4 p.m.
