Girl’s soccer keeps rolling over opponents
The girls soccer team this week came out a little further ahead than, well, everyone.
The team beat Bishop Manogue, Oct. 16, 6-1, then they took it to North Tahoe again, 2-1 to finalize their dominance in Northern 3A play on Friday. Then, after a long weekend without practice, they shutout Whittell 3-0 on Monday, extending their record to 12-0.
Playing Bishop Manogue was a little more routine, but the field is really short. Truckee’s field, like most soccer fields, is 110 yards long. Bishop’s field is only 90 yards.
“The girls play better when they have space,” Adams said.
“The field was really small,” Camille Gannam said. “But we really controlled the ball.”
For the North Tahoe game, the second game between the two schools, started at 7 p.m. after the boys team for the first time this season.
“North Tahoe was really fun,” Gannam said. “We got to play with the lights. It was more intense.”
“It was a lot of adrenaline for all of us,” Nicole Cardinali said.
Against Whittell, the weekend slowed down the squad a bit.
“I think that’s Mondays for you,” coach Kyle Adams said. “They took it to us- they had two really good scoring opportunities.”
Now they have to look ahead to one more match each with Incline Village, Bishop Manogue and Whittell: Incline Village will be playing in Surprise Stadium Saturday, Whittell hosts the Wolverines on Tuesday and Manogue comes to town on Wednesday. After that, the regular season is a wrap.
“Let’s see if we can fire them up before zones,” Adams said.
When Incline comes back, they’ll be hungry for a victory.
“They know what they faced the first time,” Adams said.
“We’ll be more ready,” Cardinali said. “We weren’t ready for them last time.”
The JV girls took care of business in Quincy Saturday, beating their hosts 10-0. Masha Goodpastor and Whitney Hardy both had three goals and Brandy Barna, Alexandra O’Neil, Katie Geresey and Chenin Kriger all had one goal each. They wrap up their season today with a 4 p.m. home game against 4A South Lake Tahoe. The two teams played earlier this year and tied, the only blemish in a 13-0-1 season record that featured 89 goals and only six goals by opponents.
