CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Emi Yamamoto had two goals and an assist as the 10th-ranked Laramie County Community College Eagles eliminated the North Idaho College Cardinals 3-1 on Friday in the semifinals of the District B tournament at Laramie County Community College.

Allysa Howell had six saves for NIC, which concludes the season 10-5-3.

Demi Wignot opened the scoring in the 10th minute of the first half, scoring on a shot into the right side of the goal.

YUMA, Ariz. - Scott McMurdie opened the scoring in the 32nd minute and added a goal in the second half of the Cardinals' 5-3 loss to Otero Junior College of LaJunta, Colo., on Friday at the West District tournament at Arizona Western College.

Ethan Olson scored unassisted late in the second half to close out the scoring for NIC, which finishes its season at 9-8-2.

"I didn't think it was our best game but it wasn't our worst game," NIC coach Scott Moorcroft said. "We missed a real window of opportunity in the first 10 minutes of the second half."

Moorcroft said the team played good soccer during that time, had a couple of good opportunities, and had one ball saved at the goal line.

"We didn't capitalize - we were knocking on the door coming out of the break," he said.

First half - 1, NIC, Scott McMurdie (Ethan Olson) 32:00. 2, Ot, Ayrton Chavez (Noe Rios) 36:00.
