Laker boys play Colfax even

The North Tahoe boys soccer team played visiting Colfax (Calif.) to a 2-2 tie in its second nonleague game of the season Tuesday.

Sophomores Israel Ramirez and Salvador Avila, both forwards, scored a goal apiece for the Lakers.

“We played well,” said North Tahoe head coach Beto Alcaraz. “The boys feel more comfortable now. They’re moving the ball better than the first game. I think Saturday’s game was a huge wake-up call for them.”

The Lakers lost Saturday’s season opener 9-0 to visiting Jesuit, a highly competitive program from Carmichael, Calif.

“They played much better,” on Tuesday, Alcaraz said of his team. “I think they’ll find that not all games are going to be like Jesuit. The only way they’ll face another team like that is in college.”

North Tahoe competes in the Del Campo Tournament in Rocklin on Friday and Saturday, then plays its first league game at Truckee on Tuesday, Sept. 9. The boys game starts at 5 p.m. and the girls game at 3 p.m.
