PREP ROUNDUP: Carson girls blank Galena 1-0
RENO – Josilyn Daggs scored 12 minutes into the match, and Carson High’s girls soccer team held on for a 1-0 victory over Galena in a Sierra League match Saturday afternoon.
Carson, 6-2, returns to action Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at home against Damonte Ranch.
Carson out-shot Galena 16-5.
“Galena played us very hard; put a lot of pressure on us,” said coach Randy Roser. “They were trying to force us into bad passes. They did what Manogue did which was to play three forwards up top.
“It was all Josilyn in the first 15 minutes. Kenzie (Tillitt) did a good job in the midfield. Aaran Rumbaugh and Kaitlyn Holmes played outside midfield and they did a good job of slowing things down. Our back four defenders held it together.”
Carson, Galena boys tie
RENO – The Senators fought back from a 2-0 halftime deficit with second-half goals by Evan Sanchez and Cristian Hernandez to tie the Grizzlies 2-2.
Carson out-shot Galena 9-7 and had a 5-4 edge in shots on goals.
It was a physical contest with 40 fouls called. Seven yellow cards were issued.
“It was a physical game,” said coach Eric Masters, whose team is 6-1-2 heading into Wednesday’s home match against Damonte Ranch at 7 p.m. “They’re a good team.
They had two goals in the first half going with the win and we scored our two goals in the second half going with the wind. We were second-guessing ourselves a lot because of the win.”

RENO – Galena upset Carson 4-3 in JV soccer action Saturday afternoon.
