JV girls show strong against Lakers
The Truckee High School girls’ junior varsity soccer team beat the North Tahoe High School on Wednesday 5-0.
“It takes us some time to settle in,” said Head Coach Norma Cannon.
After the Wolverines did settle in Paola Teran wasted no time scoring the first goal. Shortly after Erica Virrey scored the second goal on an assist from her corner kick seconds earlier.
The North Tahoe Lakers struggled to get anything going offensively.
Truckee dominated the pace of the game and controlled the ball the majority of the first half.
After driving and taking a shot on goal Nicole Panziera got the rebound off her own shot to score a goal and put the Wolverines up 3-0.
The Truckee defense ensured North Tahoe only had a few shots on goal.
The Wolverines continued to dominate as Whitney Brixey scored a goal off the North Tahoe goalie’s hands. Claney Delforge added another goal before the end of the half to make the score 5-0.
The second half continued with Truckee controlling the ball but unable to score another goal.
“In the second half we were moving player around to give them experience in other positions,” Cannon said.
“The score doesn’t matter to us (Cannon and assistant coach Wayne Vandergriff), we just want them to work as a team on the field,” Cannon said.
The Truckee High School junior varsity soccer team came up with a big win over Whittell High School on Tuesday 9-1.
