"I don't know what to say. I just don't know what to say," Mustangs coach and Iron Mountain High School graduate Bob Landsee told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I mean, we should've won this game by 20 points. But we don't finish."

Mountaineers face tough stretch ahead

EAGLE RIVER, Wis. - Iron Mountain dropped a pair of soccer matches Saturday at the Northland Pines Invite, losing 8-0 to Ashland and 4-1 to Assumption High of Wisconsin Rapids.

Grace VanLaanen scored Iron Mountain's goal in the loss to Assumption. Ashley Berger assisted.

"I am happy for Grace, she has been a relentless defender for four years for this team and it hasn't provided her a lot of scoring opportunities," Mountaineers coach Jim Laydon said. "It is great to see her get a goal before she graduates."

Assumption scored three goals in the first ten minutes to take control.

"I think we were still shell shocked from the first game against Ashland," Laydon said. "Once we settled in and started playing our game the time of possession evened out and the shots started coming our way."

VanLaanen powered a shot in off a Berger corner kick early in the second half.

Audrey Laurila made 16 saves in the loss to Ashland.

"I would like to credit Audrey for a very good game because it actually could have been worse," Laydon said. "We didn't play very well, but Ashland is one of the best high school girls teams I have seen."

IM plays at Antigo tonight, the first of three games this week - including Marquette and Kingsford -before a weekend tournament at Rhinelander.
