Community Sports: Carson FC Wolfpack U15 girls take title
The Carson FC Wolfpack U15 girls started the spring season by playing in the U16 Bracket of the Sagebrush Start-up Tournament as the only Northern Nevada representative.
The team entered the tournament having only played one game with its complete line-up due to player conflicts and weather issues that had hampered early season preparation. Despite its lack of experience as a team, the Wolfpack won the tournament in dominant fashion with four shutouts.
The Wolfpack posted consecutive 2-0 wins over U16 Northern California teams on Saturday, and then won 3-0 over the U15 Xtreme Black team from Idaho and ended with a 1-0 victory in the championship game over NorCal Elite U16 girls.
The Carson FC Wolfpack is made up of Elite Players from Reno, Carson City, Minden, Incline Village and Bishop.
