At 11-0, TNT is ‘dynamite’
Aptly named, it truly turned out to be the Truckee Soccer Tournament, with the undefeated Tahoe-Truckee High School girls’ soccer team sweeping the tourney over the weekend; four wins and no losses.
Facing Whittell Friday, Truckee came out 2-1, with Quincy Young scoring one goal, with an assist from Becca Shook, while Shook later scored a goal assisted by Callie Pratt.
“We didn’t play well Friday,” said head coach Doug Roberts. “We gave up a goal in the second half and they (Whittell) got back into it.”
In the second game, Truckee beat Lovelock 9-0, with Lindsey Back scoring four goals.
Truckee then handled Incline, 3-0, with Shook scoring twice and Megan Minnick scoring once.
The final game of the tournament was its toughest, with Truckee beating Douglas County 2-1, though Truckee had already won the tournament before the game even began.
Shook scored both of Truckee’s goals within the first eight minutes, one from the corner and another on a breakaway shot.
“Because we’d already won, I was glad the girls stuck with it (in the Douglas game),” Roberts said. “They’re one of the top 4A schools in Reno.”
The tournament left the Wolverines at 11-0, not bad, Roberts said, for a team in the rebuilding stages.
“We have lots of girls committed to the sport. I’ve encouraged them a lot through the years that if they’re serious, they need to play year-round,” Roberts said. “That’s why we come in every year as the favorite team because we’re improving all the time.”
He said because of this, his team is in better shape than the competition.
“We condition really hard.”
In the five years Roberts has coached, he has amassed a 93-2 record, both losses having come against bigger 4A schools. One of the losses was against Douglas.
“We got our revenge for that,”
