Delta High School's soccer team played extremely well this past week and almost upset the 4A WSL's number two team, Battle Mountain, in a 3-2 loss.
The Lady Panthers (2-4 in league, and 3-5 overall) played a strong defensive game to keep the visiting Lady Huskies from scoring in the first half.
Delta scored its first goal in the first half near the 14:50 mark.
Delta picked up its second goal early in the second half but could not keep the Battle Mountain offense from erupting for three goals and the narrow victory. The Lady Panthers could have tied the match with a penalty kick late in the match but missed the shot.
Scoring goals for Delta were sophomore Kristen Gardner and junior Siri Jasond. Jasond and Joanna Brieze were credited with assists.
Net-keeper Kaitlin Davis saved nine shots on goal by the Lady Huskies.
Battle Mountain's Rosie Davies netted two goals while Keelin Robinson scored the third goal.
On Saturday, April 6, Delta lost a heart-breaker against Steamboat Springs. The Lady Panthers were up 2-1 at half, but lost 3-4 after giving up three second- half goals.
Junior Joanna Briese scored twice for Delta with six shots on goal. Kristen Gardner scored Delta's other goal.
