Truckee soccer | Girls, boys edge Incline on the road, improve to 2-0 in league

Sun Staff report

Shauna Day scored the go-ahead goal in the 52nd minute to lift the Truckee girls’ soccer team to a 2-1 league win at Incline on Thursday.

The Wolverines improved to 2-0 in Sierra League play and 5-4-1 overall, while the Highlanders fell to 0-2 overall and in league.

Incline struck first in the 33rd minute as Kerri Tonking sent a cross to Elise Nelson, who found the right side of the net to put the home team up 1-0.

Truckee head coach Katie Jamison said the goal upset what seemed like an evenly matched game to that point, while the Incline coaching staff felt that the Highlanders were a dominant force in the midfield early in the contest.

Either way, Truckee responded to the goal with a cross from Melissa Cardoza followed by a header goal from Ashley Harris in the 39th minute, knotting the score at 1-apiece at the half. Day then scored the go-ahead goal 12 minutes into the second half, and the Wolverines made the lead stick thanks in large part to goalie Gina Bauerline, who came up huge with three-game saving goals in the second half, Jamison said.

Jamison said junior midfielder Olivia Duner controlled the center of the field while Sammy Holoday successfully ran the defense.

The Truckee boys improved to 2-0 in the Sierra League and 9-2 overall with a 2-0 win at Incline on Thursday.

After a scoreless first half, Johnny Zarate and Fernando Rodriguez each scored in the second half, both unassisted, to lead Truckee to the win.

Truckee head coach Casey Eberhardt said he was happy with how the Wolverines played in the second half after coming out a little flat early on.
