Wolverine boys’ soccer takes a win

The Truckee boys’ varsity soccer beat Quincy 6-1 in what Head Coach Rob Curtis described as “the weakest showing of the year.”

“They were overconfident and not focussed,” Curtis said. “It was a wakeup call, but I’m glad to have it out of the way early.”

Up 1-0 at the half, Truckee found themselves tied with Quincy fifteen minutes into the second half of play.

“Our intensity level was off,” Curtis said. “We can’t afford to have effort like that against teams like North Tahoe, they’ll take advantage of the lack of intensity.”

“When the whole team isn’t on they don’t run as a machine,” Curtis said. “We were just a bunch of parts.”

In the game Truckee’s two sophomore players, Scott Eberhardt and Chris Pearson, each had two goals. Kevin Waters scored the second point of the game which Curtis said sparked the teams attention. Truckee scored five goals in the last 15 minutes of play.

Danny Rostad had one goal and missed a penalty kick.

The frustration mounted in the Wolverines with two yellow cards and a red that left goalie Clayton Bena with a one game suspension.

“When we’re running down the ball they’re (Truckee) competitive with anyone, but when they’re not they allow everyone to be competitive with them,” Curtis added.
