Cougars fall to River City

El Dorado High’s varsity girls soccer program hosted River City Tuesday night, fighting hard but coming up short in a 2-1 Sierra Valley Conference loss.

Caught off guard by an early Raiders push, El Dorado gave up two quick goals in the opening 15 minutes of play before renegotiating the pace and holding its guests scoreless for the remainder of the evening.

“We’ve emphasized a need to play better in the first 15 minutes of each game,” head coach Chris Herrman said. “We slipped early and gave up two goals right away to an outstanding River City front line, but managed to hunker down and fight our way back into it.”

Sophomore Kylie Haverson carried keeper duties through 75 minutes of play, with junior Emily Oliver stepping in for five during the matchup. After the two early goals, Haverson was tough as nails in the box, tallying seven saves in the hopes of keeping her squad in the action.

Up front, senior Kaylynn Cuddy was lead point for El Dorado’s offensive attack — a daunting task that required the Cougar forward to take on two and three defenders at once. Despite the odds, Cuddy tracked a through ball late in the second half and found threads after an arduous cycle of fruitless attempts.

“We have had numerous talks with Kaylynn about not hesitating to take charge and lead the offense for us,” Herrman said. “She had a courageous game carrying that weight, and I’m extremely proud of the way she performed as our team leader.”

El Dorado (0-3-1) occupies the sixth place in the SVC and is seeking its first league victory along with Union Mine and Galt. The Lady Cougars will play Liberty Ranch before hosting Bear River next week.
