Tahoe-Truckee High School weekly sports wrap-up
The Tahoe-Truckee High School boys’ soccer team took an easy victory against Quincy last Friday at home, 9-1.
“We dominated the game from the outset, but could not put the ball in the net early on,” said head coach Larry Leatherman.
Elias Silver received a pass from Kyle Barth roughly 20 minutes into the game, scoring a goal.
Quincy answered 15 minutes later with a shot from the left to take Truckee into the half with a tie game.
In the second half, Jim Leatherman took a pass from Barth and buried it in the near post and scored two more, earning a “hat trick” and raising the score to 4-1. Kenny Jacobs fired a 25-yard shot and caught the Quincy keeper by surprise.
Silver added two more goals and earned a “hat trick” while Antuan Cannon put in another two.
Truckee ended up with 30 shots on the Quincy goal, to Quincy’s nine shots on Truckee.
Curtis Donaldson controlled the defensive end of things. Wes Thelen controlled midfield play.
In another game, Truckee beat Manogue 3-0 on Sept. 1.
In play last week, Truckee defeated Manogue 8-0 and Quincy 9-0.
The previous week, the team won five games at the Quincy tournament.
A game slated for Tuesday afternoon was canceled due to a scheduling conflict with Incline.
Last Thursday at home, Truckee fell to Whittell in three games, 15-7, 15-10 and 15-1.
At a tournament at Incline over the weekend, the spikers beat Virginia City in two games, split with Yerington, and lost to both Dayton and Hawthorne.
Truckee ended up fourth in its pool. In total, 13 teams competed.
