PREP ROUNDUP: Carson, Reno girls battle to 1-1 tie
RENO – Carson High’s soccer team opened the Northern 4A season with a 1-1 tie against Reno Tuesday night.
“We were trying a few new things,” Carson coach Randy Roser said. “We didn’t play well. Our timing was off.”
Reno scored within the first 10 minutes of the contest, and Carson matched that score late in the first half when Kianha Pimental sent a cross to Josie Daggs, who beat the Reno keeper.
“That was a very nice play,” Roser said. “She (Daggs) had to beat a defender and then beat the keeper from the right side.”
Neither team was able to score in the second half.
“We had a few opportunities,” Roser said. “We just weren’t able to finish.”
Emmy Heller played the entire game in goal for the Senators. Natalie Stevens and Kate Schulz were praised for their efforts.
Carson, 0-0-1, returns to action at 7 p.m. Tuesday against Reed.
