Girls’ Soccer: Weather can’t slow Truckee

Cold, wet rain came onto the field for some playing time last Friday, as the Truckee girls’ soccer team prepared for yet another display of domination. Scoring seven goals against Lowry and taking another victory at the hands of its opponent, the Lady Wolverines were untouched by the chill in the air.

Scoring for Truckee were Kristine Trudeau with three goals and Kristine Bena, Julie Ruckheim, Darcy Spencer and Caitlin Holman with one goal apiece. Moving into Saturday’s match with Spring Creek and still fueled by Friday’s win, the Wolverines were fired up to face the Spartans. Wolverine coach Mike Holman predicts Spring Creek, “will definitely be in the running for the league championships.”

While dominating the game with 24 shots on goal, the Wolverines only put one ball in the net in the ninth minute of the second half, as Kristine Bena scored off an assist by Cali Pratt. Truckee finished the day with a hard fought 1-0 win.

Tomorrow the Wolverines head to North Tahoe to play the Lakers, closing out the regular season before beginning league championship play next week. A win over North Tahoe will put the Wolverines in the top seeded position in the semifinals.
