Sun Staff reports

The North Tahoe girls soccer team defeated host Sparks 2-0 in a Northern 3A Tahoe League game on Tuesday.

The Lakers are now 2-2 in league coming off their second straight win.

Senior co-team captain Sage Clark scored both North Tahoe goals, one on an assist from Sammi Schultz and the other from a Kelsey Wittels assist in the second half.

North Tahoe goalkeepers Kea Jolicoeur and Samantha Jeffers combined to preserve the shutout.

Lakers head coach Courtney Firth said her team did not play its prettiest game of the season, but the players made necessary adjustments after the half and stepped up their level of play to get the win.

The Laker boys did not fare as well, losing 2-0 at Sparks.
