RENO " The Carson Senators scored three goals in the first 14 minutes and cruised to a 7-0 win over Wooster in a Sierra League girls soccer match on Saturday.

Carson moved to 4-0 heading into Tuesday's home match against Damonte Ranch at 7 p.m.

The Senators dominated at both ends of the field, outshooting Wooster 26-1, getting two goals apiece from Brandi Vega and Megan Jackson, and one each from Brenda Luquin, Ashley Turner and Emily Field.

The Colts' lone shot on goal came in the 70th minute as the quartet of Field, Nicole Updegrove, Turner and Julianne King were praised for their defensive play by coach Randy Roser.

"We moved the ball well," Roser said. "Everything we practiced came through. Hopefully we'll continue to improve in the next few weeks. We played Wooster in a preseason tournament and beat them 4-0, and we had to work for every score we got."

Wooster was missing a couple of players and the heat took its toll on them throughout the match.

Vega, who is headed to Washington State in the fall, gave the Senators a 1-0 lead in the 9th minute when she dribbled around and through two defenders to beat Wooster goalkeeper Kristin Coultus.

Approximately six minutes later, Helainne Berris fed Jackson, who fired a shot in the right-hand corner for a 2-0 lead.

In the 21st minute, Vega made a nice centering pass in front of the goal to Luquin, who headed it past Coultus for a 3-0 lead.

Vega scored her second goal in the 26th minute with an 18-yarder for a 4-0 advantage.

Roser started subbing freely at that point and throughout the rest of the game. As a result, things got sloppy and out of sync at times.

Jackson scored her second goal in the 45th minute to make it 5-0. Field and Turner each scored inside the last 10 minutes.

Jen Johnson and Danica Sheldon shared time in goal and Sheldon picked up Carson's only save.

CARSON BOYS PULL OUT TIE

It was a game that the Senator boys were nowhere close to the top of their game and they almost paid for the lackluster effort with a loss.

Ian Gunn scored in the 77th minute to wipe out a 1-0 deficit and pull the Senators into a tie.

Carson coach Nate Brigham was disappointed with his team's effort.

"We were slow," he said. "They played better than we did. We had a poor defensive effort especially from the midfield to the 18-yard mark. We were letting them do whatever they wanted to do. We had more shots on us today than the rest of the games combined.

"We didn't move the ball, didn't create space. Our passing was off."

Save for Gunn's goal, Carson's best opportunity came in the 47th minute when Uriel Duran fired wide right.

Less than four minutes later, Nate Eng was unable to clear a ball near his own goal and Wooster's Morgan Lemos scored.

The Senators had a couple of other opportunities. Brady Roser booted a direct kick well over the crossbar in the 60th minute. About eight minutes later, a Wooster defender blocked a shot by the Senators, who were unable to recover the rebound.

After Gunn tied the match, each team had one opportunity in extra time but was unable to convert.

CARSON JV BOYS 6, WOOSTER 3

Carson won its second consecutive Sierra League match with a victory over Wooster.

Luis Camacho scored twice for Carson, while Ivan Reyes, Jason Martinez, Victor Romero and Zach Bruce added one goal apiece.

CARSON JV GIRLS 9, WOOSTER 0

Aaron Rumbaugh scored within the first 10 seconds and the Senators rolled from there as Oliva Pishnak added two goals and Kaitlyn Holmes, Janet Butler, Mo Chavez, Brittany Medina, Eliza Matley and Ali Cowan each added one.

Chavez added three assists as Carson improved to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in league play.

CHS graduate and head coach Ali Otto credited Sharon Montiel, Eva Arraz, Ali Fleming and Mary Novak for holding it together in the back row. Butler and Jessica Kline took care of the goalkeeping duties.

DAYTON GIRLS 3, INCLINE 2

Ingelin Garmann scored, Erica Garcia pressured Incline into an own goal and Garcia sent a crossing pass for an assist to Ashley Cross, who scored to give Dayton (2-1 in the Northern 3A) a 3-0 lead and the Dust Devils held on for the win.

DOUGLAS BOYS 3, DAMONTE RANCH 0

The Tigers improved to 1-0-1 in the regular season, getting goals from Edgar Arceo, Jeff Crozier and Andrew Andraski. Arceo's unassisted goal opened the scoring in the 15th minute as Douglas took a 1-0 lead into the second half.

Arceo added an assist, finding Crozier in the 46th minute, while Ross Gardner, who Douglas coach Milko Vazquez credited with a standout performance at sweeper, assisted on Andraski's 30-yard blast in the 60th minute.

Vasquez also singled out Dylan Colbert for his role as stopper along with the midfield play of Christian Salazar. Vasquez also said Gavin Sitzhugh and Luke Prince played important roles off the bench.

Douglas goalkeeper Corbin Zumpft had four saves.

DOUGLAS GIRLS 7, DAMONTE RANCH 1

Douglas was able to open up its potent offense Saturday with a win over Damonte Ranch in Minden.

The game was the Tigers' highest-scoring effort of the season as they improved to 8-0 overall and 2-0 in Sierra League play.

Ally Freitas scored three goals to go with two assists and Tia Lyons scored two goals to lead the Tigers.

Lyons opened up the scoring in the 10th minute after Freitas headed the ball forward on the fly. Lyons received the pass and carried several yards before chipping a nice shot over the Mustangs' keeper.

Freitas angled a shot between the post and the keeper in the 19th minute off a Michelle Day assist to put Douglas up 2-0.

Damonte Ranch closed the gap to 2-1 on Ciara O'Driscoll's loft shot in the 31st minute, but Douglas opened things up from that point on.

Natalie Freitas dropped a pass back for Ally Freitas in the 35th minute, giving Douglas the 3-1 lead and Alex Laing scored unassisted a minute later.

Ally Freitas looped a pass in the 38th minute to give Lyons a breakaway goal for the 5-1 lead.

Douglas wrapped up its scoring in the second half when Katie Dry assisted Natalie Freitas in the 48th minute and Laing assisted Ally Freitas in the 55th minute.

Sage Lyons, Mackenzie Cauley and Shelby Eisele had standout contributions on the defensive end and Dany Heidt and Kelly D'Amico were strong in the middle.

Christy Harvey posted two saves in net during the first half while Brianna Randall had six saves in the second.

Douglas next travels to Wooster on Tuesday and will take on rival Carson on Saturday.
