Truckee’s girls soccer team lost a nonleague game 2-1 at Galena on Thursday.
Truckee head coach Amy Valdivia said that while there were a few bright moments for her team, the Wolverines were not on their game.
“They just didn’t last for the entire 80 minutes,” she said. “We were not playing our best team ball.”
Senior co-captain Addie Shaffer put Truckee on the board in the 78th minute. It was an impressive goal, Valdivia said, as Shaffer knocked a header into the upper corner of the net off a cross from Kelsi Decker in heavy traffic.
“It was really nice,” Valdivia said.
