Sheridan HS Soccer: The Sheridan High School boys soccer team announced their presence to the rest of the state this past weekend.

On Friday, the Broncs did what no other 4A East team has been able to do so far this season, and that was beat Cheyenne Central.

Not only did they do that, they did it in shutout fashion at home 3-nil.

The boys then followed up that win with a 4-1 victory on Saturday at home vs. Cheyenne East.

As far as the game against Central went, before the game, the Indians had only given up 2 goals all season, and had yet to trail in a game.

Junior Kelten Crow says the plan was simple.

Put the opposition in a spot they had yet to experience and watch them fall apart.

As for the Sheridan girls, they won on Friday at Cheyenne Central 2-0, but lost on Saturday at Cheyenne East 1-0.

This week is the last week of the regular season.

Tomorrow, Sheridan is scheduled to play Campbell County.

The boys will play their home finale, while the girls are on the road.

Then on Friday, both Sheridan teams play at Thunder Basin.
