With playoff berths already well secured, the North Tahoe girls soccer team cruised to an 11-0 win over visiting Yerington on Friday, while the boys won 2-1.

Eight different players scored for the North Tahoe girls, with senior Bryn Anderson leading the way with three goals. Allison Wright scored two goals, and Emma Sproehnle, Jacki Partain, Lindsey Twomey, Maddie Cleeland, Piper Joubert and Nicole Marinoff scored a goal apiece.

AJ Hurt contributed two assists, while Wright, Sproehnle, Anderson, Twomey, Emma DesLauriers and Valencia Covell each had an assist.

The win adjusted the first-place Lakers’ record to 11-1-1 in the Northern Division III with one game remaining — at rival Incline (10-1-2) on Tuesday.

For the North Tahoe boys, Omar Cerda scored the first goal assisted by Ángel León, and Austin Carr scored the second goal assisted by Juan Pablo Herrera.

North Tahoe’s boys were 9-2 entering Tuesday’s league showdown at Incline, which shares the same league record. Only West Wendover, at 9-1-1, has a better record than the Lakers and Highlanders.

Incline will host the Division III state championship tournament on Nov. 6-7. Since there is no Southern DIII, the state tournament will serve as the only postseason tourney.
