“It will determine the Conference championship,” Cloud County coach Steve Ralos said.

A goal by sophomore Jake Currie extended the T-Birds’ lead to 3-0.
Lavery would score two more goals in the match to give Cloud County the 5-0 win.
“They were a very, very poor team and we didn’t execute things the way I wanted them to be executed to get ready for this weekend, and the postseason,” Ralos said.
