Prep roundup: Carson High School girls soccer edges McQueen
RENO — Despite a lackluster effort, the Carson girls soccer team escaped with a 1-0 win at McQueen on Thursday.
Carson coach Greg Lehman admitted this week’s Homecoming activities seemed to affect his team’s performance on Thursday.
“We had moments but we seemed to be really, really flat,” Lehman said. “We looked tired today.
“It was actually really disappointing. We had a few moments where we seemed to be putting it together but we couldn’t sustain it for any length of time.”
The Senators salvaged the win when they scored with six minutes left in regulation. Karla Reyes scored on a header off of Lindy Lehman’s corner kick. Reyes played at goalie in the first half and combined with Galilea Cid, who played at goalie in the second half, to post the shutout.
Lehman said Makeala Bigley and Teresa Boehmer played well defensively for Carson, which improved to 8-2-1 in league.
