South Tahoe topples Truckee, 28-20, to punch ticket to state
TRUCKEE, Calif. — The 2016 season is over for the Truckee football team after the Wolverines fell 28-20 Saturday against rival South Tahoe in the 3A Northern League semifinals.
The win vaults South Tahoe into the state semifinals; the Vikings will play next weekend in Las Vegas against Desert Pines High School.
Truckee (8-2) scored on impressive drives on its first possessions in both the first and third quarters, but the Vikings (9-2) played solid defense for most of the rest of the game to come out on top.
South Tahoe benefited from a 15-yard unsportsmanlike foul penalty against Truckee late in the 4th quarter to seal the win.
