The Truckee girls stayed unbeaten within the Class 3A Northern League, but did suffer a blemish to their record in a 1-1 tie against South Tahoe.

The Wolverines struck first in the game, when junior Ava Seelenfreund received a through ball from Sophie Curtis. Seelenfreund then fought off a defender to fire a shot from the right side of the box, beating South Tahoe’s keeper. South Tahoe would even the game in the second half, scoring on a goal in the 60th minute.
