TRUCKEE TOPS DAYTON
DAYTON – The Wolverines knocked Dayton from the unbeaten ranks with a 25-23, 25-15, 23-25 and 25-21 victory in a Northern 3A match.
“It was very intense,” Dayton coach Monica Halverson said. “In the second game we lost our momentum a little bit. We missed quite a few serves, and that was detrimental to us.”
Jamie Darragh led Dayton with 10 kills two aces and two digs, while Kathie Arias finished with nine kills, three aces and three digs. Madison Foley ended with six kills, four aces and two digs, and Cassie DePew had five kills and four blocks. McKenzie Kielty had two kills and seven assists.

HAWTHORNE TOPS VC
HAWTHORNE – In a tight match, Hawthorne outlasted Virginia City 23-25, 25-22, 26-24, 25-23 in a Northern 1A match.
Jamie Poston led the Muckers with 10 kills, seven digs and three aces. Jill Dupre had six kills, six aces, 12 digs and two blocks, and Taylor Parsons had six kills and eight aces. Denali Fickus had 19 assists, three kills and threeaces.
Virginia City won the JV match 25-19, 23-25 and 15-8. Cori Defebaugh led VC with two kills while Shannon Parsons added a kill and block.
SENATORS BLANK WOOSTER
RENO – The first-place Senators continued to roll, pounding Wooster 7-0, in girls soccer action.
Carson is 4-0-1 heading into Saturday’s home match against Bishop Manogue.
Seven different players scored for Carson – Josie Daggs, Brenda Torres, Eliza Matley, Ali Cowan, Kenzie Tillitt, Kaitlyn Holmes and Kate Schulz. Holmes also had an assist.
Carson has scored 16 goals in its last two wins over North Valleys and Wooster.
There is no doubt Carson coach Randy Roser would have liked a tighter game to prepare his team for Saturday’s game against Manogue.
“I’d like it to be more consistent,” Roser said. “That’s high school, though, up and down. We slowed things down. We didn’t let the girls run any breakaways. It was more like a practice for us to get things moving.”
Arran Rumbaugh played in goal for the Senators, and faced just one shot.
DAYTON KNOCKS OFF WHITTELL
ZEPHYR COVE – Dayton scored twice in the opening 20 minutes and withstood a second-half Whittell rally to post a 2-1 Northern 3A girls’ soccer victory.
Sam Langer gave Dayton an early 1-0 lead, scoring in the fourth minute and she then assisted on Maribel Ledezma’s in the 19th minute, providing the Dust Devils with a 2-0 halftime lead.
The win enabled Dayton to even its league record at 2-2.
“Any win we can put on with these lake schools is big. It’s our first time being in this league, and it’s forced us to step our game,” said Dayton coach Jared Miklich.
DUST DEVILS BOYSFALL
ZEPHYR COVE – Whittell attempted 24 shots in the opening 40 minutes of its match match against Dayton, making three en route to a 5-0 Sierra League boys’ soccer triumph.
Trevor Fairbank, T.J. Kolesnik and Blake Heldt-Werle each found the back of the net for Whittell before intermission.
Following two dazzling saves by Dayton keeper Edgar Diaz, Fairbank beat the Dust Devils’ goalie with a 15-yard hard, low shot just inside the near post. Kolesnik hit a 20-yard shot at 25-minute mark. Heldt-Werle capped Whittell’s first-half scoring onslaught by bouncing in a 40-yard free kick in the final minute.
Dayton plays at Lowry on Saturday.
