Carson boys win second straight 4A match
SPARKS – Carson High’s boys soccer team won its second straight road match, knocking off Reed 3-1 Wednesday night.
Carson is 2-0-0 entering its home opener at 11 a.m. Saturday against Damonte Ranch.
“I’m very happy with how both the varsity and JV played,” first-year coach Eric Masters said. “We’ve been working on defense for the past month, so it was nice to score three goals. It was good to see Jason Martinez getting a couple of goals under his belt.
“Michael Samii played fantastic. Zach Smith and Victor Romero also played well.”
Carson opened the scoring in the 10th minute when Luis Camacho played a 40-yard diagonal ball to Sam Hutchinson, who found the back of the net on a half-volley.
Reed evened the score right before the half on a “bad goal kick,” Masters said.
Carson took a 2-1 lead in the 69th minute when Jaime Lopez played a through ball to Martinez, who beat the goalie. Carson scored again three minutes later off a corner kick by Sam Hutchinson. Martinez was able to head the ball past the Reed keeper.
Goalie Marco Magallon had four saves.
CARSON BLANKS REED
SPARKS – Jorge Rodriguez scored twice while Daniel Zuber and Francisco Barrios added a score apiece to lead the Senators to a 4-0 win.
Zuber, Samuel Bruketta and Miguel Ortiz all added assists.
Goalie Gustavo Villagrana had two saves. Nathan King, Arnaldo Diaz and Mario Escalante played well defensively.
CARSON EDGES RENO
RENO – Carson bounced back from a slow start to knock off the Huskies 15-25, 25-23, 26-28, 25-21 and 15-12 Wednesday night.
Carson, 1-0 in league, visits Reed at 6 p.m. today.
“It was a game of streaks and runs,” Carson coach Justin Malley said. “It was just a question of who got the ball at the end. We were tight to start. It was a matter of settling down and playing.
“We were up 20-15 in Game 3 and choked it away. For them to bounce back was nice. We recovered in the fourth game to send it to five,” Malley said.
Elysse Virden led Carson with 20 kills and three blocks, while Jeanette Van Sickle had 18 kills, four blocks and three aces. Bailey Valente had 25 assists and three aces.
