The Lowry High School boys soccer team wrapped up its short spring regular season with a split of two matches last week.

The Buckaroos were looking to avenge an earlier loss to Elko, when they hosted the Indians on Wednesday, March 30.

However, league-leading Elko had a different idea, scoring twice in the first eight minutes of play en route to a 6-0 victory.

Those were the only two goals of the first half, as the Buckaroos settled down into the flow of the game. 

Lowry was also without two of its goalies on the day, bringing up its goalie from the junior varsity squad.

Elko added to its lead in the 43rd minute on a penalty kick and picked up two more goals in a five-minute stretch in the 68th and 73rd minute. 

The Indians netted its final goal in the 78th minute.

“They put us on our heels right at the start,” said LHS coach Steve Swanson. “We weren’t ready to go and you can’t to do that against a good team like that. I thought Christian (Cuevas) and Alex (Ruiz) played well. We get one more chance at them back at their place.”

Buckaroos rally to beat Greenwave

When Lowry hosted Churchill County on March 19, the Buckaroos dominated the Greenwave in a 5-1 victory. It was nearly the same outcome this past Saturday in Fallon, but Lowry had to work much harder for the win.

Churchill County led 1-0 at halftime, before Lowry scored four goals in the final 40 minutes to secure the win and a second-place finish in the 3A East at 7-3.

Lowry concludes its season on Wednesday with a playoff game at Elko at 1:30 p.m. The Indians are undefeated on the season at 10-0.
