South Tahoe slams Dayton
LAKE TAHOE – Dayton held South Tahoe scoreless for the first seven minutes of the game, but the Vikings scored seven times to end the half en route to a 10-0 victory on Tuesday.
Despite the loss, Dayton remains in the playoff hunt, and coach Jared Miklich subbed freely in an effort to keep his players fresh for upcoming games against Whittell and North Tahoe, two teams he believes the Dust Devils can beat.
“We have to win those two games,” he said. “The first seven minutes we got off some shots. They’re a really good team.”
