Sheridan HS Soccer: Normally a soccer game is 11-on-11 in terms of the number of players on the field for each team, and last night, the Sheridan Broncs managed to get the job done with 10.

The boys played down 1 player for the last 3 minutes of the first half and the entire second half, yet managed to score 2 shorthanded goals, to win their home finale vs. Campbell County 2-nil.

Bryce Child and Dane Steel found the back of the net for Sheridan.

Steel says it was not the prettiest of wins, and despite the recent hot streak that the Broncs have been on, the team still needs to improve.

Boys Coach Wade Kinsey says a backup plan was in place and had been worked on in practice, should Sheridan ever have to play shorthanded.

With last night’s win, the Broncs are now 6-0-1 in their last 7 games and more importantly, the team has secured the #2 seed in next weekend’s 4A East Regional Tournament.

Even if Sheridan loses this coming Friday at Thunder Basin, the Broncs control the tie-breaker against the Bolts, thanks to their win vs. Cheyenne Central last week, which TB does not have.

Meanwhile the Lady Broncs lost last night at Campbell County 2-0.

They will also play at Thunder Basin on Friday to conclude the regular season.

Colorado Rockies Baseball: The Colorado Rockies made history last night in a bad way.

Playing at Miami, the Rocks scored 5 runs in the 1st inning, part in thanks to 3-run home run by Elehuris Montero.

Starting pitcher Ryan Feltner was working on a 3-hit shutout on the mound, and then everything fell apart in the bottom of the 9th inning.

The Marlins scored 5 to tie the game, Colorado scored 1 in the top of 10th, but the bullpen could not hold and Miami scored 2 in the bottom of the 10th to win 7-6.

With the loss, the Rockies have become the first team in Major League Baseball history, to trail at one point or another, in each of the teams’ first 29 games of the season…and last night, the only time the team trailed was after the final pitch.

Game 2 of the 3-game series at Miami is today at 4:40pm.
