Girls’ soccer off to another strong start

The Truckee High School girls’ soccer walked away with a 3-0 victory against Incline High School on Thursday.

Although the Wolverines kept possession of the ball through most of the first half, both teams struggled to find an offensive rhythm. Truckee had a hard time sending the ball past the Incline goalie Ali Marriner.

After the second half, it appeared the Wolverines had warmed up. Truckee came out of the gates fast and focused; ready to put away the first real play of the game.

Nicole Cardinali made a clean pass to Sara Grossman who slammed the ball into goalkeeper Amy Harris. The ball bounced off her foot and into the net.

Truckee fed off the adrenaline and wasted no time scoring the secon goal. Kaitlin Holeman mad a pass to Cardinali in the middle. Cardinali launched a beautiful ball into the net, just inches above Harris’ fingers.

The Highlanders tried to stay focused on scoring, but ended up playing a lot of long-ball instead.

In the final minutes Cardinelli launched the ball into the box to seal the game 3-0.

“The first half was everything we’ve been working on all year, it was fun to wathc it all come together,” Adams said.

“It was the best we’ve played as a team all year,” Adams added.
