Fallon's Lady Wave soccer team clusters around a loose pass to take control during a passing drill on Monday.
Today only leaves a handful of practices until the Lady Wave soccer team begins their season with a non-conference match against Pahrump Valley at Spring Creek High School on Friday and its first league match with the Truckee Wolverines on Sept. 9. Former assistant coach, now head coach, Lance Lattin, has a young team with a lot of sophomores, while three of his five seniors are returners, but a winning scrimmage with North Valley on Friday has bolstered his confidence in the team, he said. “Really I think that our shape was okay and our organization defensively as well,” Lattin said. “We’re just really young in every aspect and there’s very little varsity experience on the field so the girls are starting to understand each of their purposes and roles and where they need to be and when. We still have a ways to go but we’re making good progress.”
