Making it look easy

In a show of offensive domination the Truckee High School girls’ varsity soccer team stomped Sparks High School 13-1.

The game started out with the Wolverines instantly set the tone of the game as a passing clinic.

After passing the ball around the entire Sparks’ defense, Nicole Cardinali found the first Truckee goal.

The shots on goal rang out, as Sparks had literally no chance on clearing the ball.

Jenna Lowrance had a nice shot on goal that was blocked by the goalie in just enough time for Sara Grossman to get the rebound and kick the ball to the back of the net.

Whitney Hardy would be the next Wolverine to score a goal and put Truckee ahead by 3. Shortly after Grossman added another goal.

Minute’s later Grossman decided to make it a hat trick by scoring her third goal.

From here the Wolverines began to pass the ball around the field in an attempt to not run up the score. But on a pass back to the Truckee goalie proved to be too long and a Sparks player kicked it in to the empty goal box for their only score of the game.

Camille Gannam showed great ball handling skills before feeding a perfect assist to Maisha Goodpaster for a goal.

On the next play Emily Griesmer, out of her goalie duties, scored a goal. Gannam found a goal to put the Wolverines up 8-1.

“Ladies, no more,” coach Kyle Adams called from the sidelines. The Wolverines were able to score at will, but they resisted. Instead they passed the ball around the defense, up to the goalie and back out again.

At the end of the second half the Wolverines scored five more goals.

“Considering the lack of competition they accomplished a lot,” Adams said. “They played very well.”

“Jenna Lowrance had a tremendous game. She did everything we’ve been asking her to do,” Adams said. “Whitney Hardy also had a great game.”

“They didn’t fall apart like they did against Lowry, they kept their composure the whole game,” Adams said.
