Carson booters roll to eighth straight win
RENO – Carson High spotted McQueen an early score, and then scored four straight goals to knock off the Lancers 4-1 Wednesday afternoon.
Carson improved to 8-0 heading into Saturday’s home match against second-place Galena at 11 a.m.
“I think we played really well,” said first-year coach Eric Masters. “They’re a good opponent. They have some guys that can play.”
Johnny Lopez, Jon Guevara, Gustavo Gonzalez and Victor Romero all scored a goal.
Trailing 1-0, Carson tied the game in the 26th minute when Chris Espinoza won the ball and played it to Lopez, who took a shot from about 18 yards. The goalie tried to make a diving stop, only to see the ball roll off his hands and into the net.
Carson made it 2-1 right before the half when Romero corralled a loose ball and sent it to Luis Camacho, who fed Guevara for the goal from 12 yards out.
Gonzalez and Romero each scored in the second half.
Marco Magallon made several good saves in the second half, according to Masters, who also singled out Romero for strong play.
• The Carson JV squad rolled to a 7-0 win against McQueen thanks to two goals from Jorge Rodriguez and one each from Francisco Barrios, Adam Shoaf, Milton Rodriguez, Omar Garcia and Danny Limon.
Nathan King and Arnaldo Diaz played well defensively.
Carson is now 7-0-1.
HUG TOPS DOUGLAS
MINDEN – The Douglas boys’ soccer team fell to Hug 1-0 Wednesday on a late goal by the Hawks. Hug put the game-winner in on a breakaway with eight minutes to play.
“It was just an unfortunate exchange that led to a breakdown,” Douglas coach Milko Vasquez said. “We got the initial stop on it, but the clear went right to their guy and that was it.”
Vasquez said his team controlled possession for a good majority of the game and had a number of solid scoring chances.
“We should have had two goals in the first half, but we just couldn’t capitalize,” Vasquez said. “We need to learn how to take advantage of those situations.”
Vasquez said Audrick Anderson, Roy Dornbrook and keeper Francisco Sanchez had good games for the Tigers.
Douglas will host Damonte Ranch at 3 p.m. Friday when the team will celebrate Senior Day early.
