Boys’, girls’ soccer post wins against Yerington
The Truckee High School boys’ varsity soccer team came back from last week’s loss to beat Yerington High School 4-1 on Tuesday.
The senior led the offensive attach with all four goals belonging to upper classman.
JC Martinez found his goal with an assist from Sean Collins. Collins scored a goal with an assist from Ramiro Aguilar. Timmy McDonald scored off an assist from Kevin Waters, and Waters scored off an assist from Scott Eberhardt.
Forrest Platt made a brief appearance in the goal box to save a goal while the goalie was recovering from the previous play.
“We played really well,” Martinez said. “We didn’t stay with the ball, we had a lot of one touch passes and moved the ball around a lot,” he added. “Everyone was playing their game.”
“They played better as a team,” said head coach Rob Curtis.
The Truckee High School girls’ varsity soccer team came up with a big victory, 6-0, to defeat Yerington on Tuesday.
Sara Grossman had two goals while Alex O’Niel, Melissa Kleffman and Jenna Lowrance each had one. Emily Griesmer found a goal when she was able to give up her goalie position to play offense.
At one point in the game head coach Kyle Adams told the girls their kicks toward the goal looked they were “shooting flowers with parachutes attached.”
“We played really well,” Adams said.
The Wolverines put a lot of shots on goal, but Adams said “they just didn’t finish well.”
Brea Wright and Lissa Dodds played well according to Adams.
“On defense we’ve settled on who needs to be where. The puzzle is coming together, there’s just a few pieces we’re shifting around,” Adams said.
“We’ll keep trying to fine tune things to find our team of 11,” he added.
