Staff Reports

Eric Libby scored one goal and backup keeper Robbie Liebherr scored what proved to the game-winning goal at the beginning of the second half as Carson beat North Valleys 2-1 on Wednesday in Reno.

It was the first loss of the season for the Panthers, who fell to 7-1-3 overall and 5-1-3 in the Sierra League. The Senators improve to 9-0-3 and 5-0-3 and are keeping pace with first-place South Tahoe for the league championship.

In the 42nd minute, Carlos Hernandez crossed a ball into the box and Libby headed it home. Then a few minutes into the second half, Liebher, who played a role in the first goal, stripped a North Valley defender and scored to make it 2-0.

The Panthers’ Bobby Partida took advantage of a defensive mistake with a only a few minutes left in the game and slotted a ball past goalie Sean Carter.

“It was a really good game,” coach Jim Nealis said. “I thought we dominated for the most part. Their two forwards really keep them in it.”
