The Lakers are scheduled to play league games at Whittell on Wednesday and host White Pine on Friday. Girls start at 4 p.m. and boys at 6.

The North Tahoe girls soccer team retained its first-place status in the Division III with lopsided wins over Battle Mountain, 9-0, on Thursday and Pershing County, 6-0, on Saturday.

The pair of shutouts gave sophomore goalie Rosalinda Jaurez five on the season as the Lakers improved to 8-0-1 in league (11-2-1 overall).

Against the Longhorns, senior scoring leader Bryn Anderson scored a hat trick with three goals, while Valencia Covell scored two goals, and Maddie Cleeland, Lindsey Twomey, Mallory Tyler and AJ Hurt scored a goal apiece. Anderson and Tyler each had two assists.

Tyler led the Lakers with two goals against the Mustangs, and Emma DesLauriers, Emma Sproehnle, Piper Joubert and Jamie Lanza each scored one.

North Tahoe’s boys defeated Battle Mountain 2-1 on the road Thursday in what coach Beto Alcaraz viewed as an underachieving performance.

“We did not play well at all,” said Alcaraz, whose Lakers improved to 4-1 in league. “We came out without any energy or desire to play the game. I’ll take this as a wake-up call and hope my players realize that every game from now on needs to be approached like we are playing in the final.”

Quinn Earley and Omar Cerda scored a goal apiece for the Lakers.
