North Tahoe football spoils Incline’s homecoming

Jen Schmidt/Sun News ServiceNorth Tahoe junior Parker Laughlin breaks free of Incline's defense in the fourth quarter of Friday's 20-12 league win.

On a night when both the Incline and North Tahoe high school football teams showed off their ground games, it was the Lakers who came out on top behind the power of their counter-running attack.The visiting Lakers held on for a 20-12 Northern 2A win after taking a 14-0 lead into the half to improve to 1-2 (1-3 overall) on the season. The Highlanders fell to 0-3 with the homecoming loss.North Tahoe broke off a number of long running plays, including a 40-yard scamper by junior Leroy Valadez that set up his own 1-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter.Valadez scored two of the three North Tahoe touchdowns and was often the beneficiary of a defense having a hard time finding the ball.It (the counter) was pretty confusing, said Incline sophomore running back Tyler Bahneman. Its hard to see the ball; there are just so many guys flying around.- Sylas Wright contributed to this report
