Quincy falls to girls’ varsity soccer
The Truckee girls’ varsity soccer team dominated Quincy on Tuesday 12-0.
“We were getting away with a lot of things and playing really sloppy,” said Head Coach Kyle Adams. “We made the types of mistakes good teams would have capitalized on.”
“We told them not to concentrate on scoring, but on how to play the game. We scored one goal in the last 20 minutes, but it was our best 20 minutes of the game,” Adams said.
Alex O’Niel and Sara Grossman lead the Wolverines with four goals each.
“We’re working on settling down and making controlled passes,” Adams said. “We need to control our speed of play and make quicker decisions.”
“We have to adjust to the ball, and by the end of the game we did a better job of this once we forgot about the goals,” Adams said.
After defeating the Quincy varsity team earlier this season, it was no surprise the lady Wolverine junior varsity team blew past the Quincy junior varsity team 9-0 on Tuesday.
In the first half Sam Deen scored the first goal for Truckee. Early on in the game it was apparent Truckee would set the pace for the entire game.
Paola Teran had the second goal with a nice kick to the upper right hand corner of the goal. Shortly after, from the far right side of the field, Erica Virrey found the front left side of the goal for another Truckee score.
Quincy had a rough time even getting the ball near midfield let alone getting past it. Every time a Quincy player tried to touch the ball they were swarmed with Wolverine defenders.
Rachel Waller made the score 4-0 with another goal. Mallory Sharp quickly added another point to Truckee’s total.
Virrey scored a goal off of a penalty kick to make it 6-0 going in to the half.
In the second half Teran worked the ball past three defenders to kick a goal past the goalie. It became clear at this point Truckee’s biggest concern was keeping its goalie warm on the brisk afternoon. Quincy was yet to get a solid shot on goal.
Deen added to Quincy’s misery by blasting a goal in the upper left hand corner of the net to make the score 8-0.
Quincy was simply out hustled. Clancy Delforge scored the last goal to the left hand side of the goalie to seal the deal 9-0.
