PREP ROUNDUP: Carson boys blank Hug
RENO – Carson High’s boys soccer team kept its firm grip on first place with a 3-0 win over Hug Saturday afternoon in a Sierra League match.
The win moves Carson to 8-1-2 in Northern 4A play heading into Wednesday night’s home match at 7 p.m. against arch-rival Douglas.
“Today was a huge win for us to see where we were as a team,” CHS coach Eric Masters said. “Last year I thought we peaked too soon, and this year we’re getting to that pinnacle. I took a different approach this year.”
Masters said his players are much more rested at this stage of the season, which should make a difference in the post-season.
Jason Martinez scored Carson’s lone first-half goal on a penalty kick in the 25th minute, and then Evan Sanchez, the dynamic transfer from South Tahoe, gave the Senators a 2-0 lead when he scored from about 50 yards away, as Hug’s goalie who is very short (5-3 or 5-4) was unable to deflect the ball. Chris Espinoza made it 3-0 in the 55th minute.
Carson blanks Hug 7-0
RENO – Kaitlyn Holmes and Josilyn Daggs scored two goals apiece to lead the Senators to an easy Sierra League win over the Hawks.
Carson led 1-0 at the half, and when coach Randy Roser inserted his starters in the second half, Carson couldn’t be stopped.
Midfielder Kenzie Tillitt butted heads with a Hug player and cut her forehead above the eyebrow. She was bleeding and had to leave the game, but is expected to be ready for Tuesday’s game against first-place Douglas.
“She got a couple of stitches,” Roser said. “She’s already been cleared. She said she was good to go.”
Chantal Torres, Kiahna Pimental and Jamie Perez scored Carson’s other goals.
