The Mountain Home Lady Tigers had a rough week in conference girls soccer, losing games to Caldwell, Skyview and Bishop Kelly.
Caldwell 6, Mountain Home 0
Mountain Home traveled to Caldwell Monday for a conference game with the Lady Cougars and lost 6-0.
Mountain Home was unable to get any balls in the net on the day. Venessa Estrella had 33 saves on goal for Mountain Home.
Skyview 6, Mountain Home 2
The Lady Tigers quieted the Skyview crowd early in the game with two first-half goals, but were unable to get any more, and Skyview came back to win 6-2 last Wednesday at Skyview.
Missy Jessup and Christa Lewis each scored for Mountain Home. Venessa Estrella once again had a great effort defending the goal, stopping 28 attempts.
"It was pretty phenomenal, to be honest," said Mountain Home girls soccer Coach Stephen Speak. "We only had 12 fit players, so I had 11 on the field and one substitute, against a team that did pretty well at district and almost made state last year.
"It was a big task for the girls, but they showed up there and quieted the crowd, as we were up 2-0 at halftime. We just played their socks off, just got worn down at the end, really, because most of the girls played the full 80 minutes, but it was a moral victory really. We played fantastic and everybody really had the Tiger spirit and played really well."

Mountain Home faced the defending 4A state champions Saturday at Eastside Park in Mountain Home and came away on the short end of a 10-1 loss to Bishop Kelly.
Missy Jessup scored Mountain Home's lone goal on a penalty kick. Venessa Estrella had nine saves on goal for Mountain Home. The loss dropped the Lady Tigers to 0-4 on the season. They play at Kuna today, Aug. 29, before they head to Middleton on Tuesday.
