The North Tahoe and Truckee soccer teams squared off on Dollar Hill this past Friday in a couple of close rival games, as the Truckee girls won 2-0 and the Truckee boys by a 2-1 score.
The girls contest remained scoreless through one half as neither team could find the back of the net.
Eighteen minutes into the second half, however, the Wolverines' increasingly threatening offensive attack finally broke through when Shelby Matthews cleaned up the rebound of a corner kick taken by Olivia Duner, giving Truckee a 1-0 lead.
Truckee sophomore Emma Warren added an insurance goal near the end of regulation to extend the lead to the final margin.
The score might have been greater if not for the solid game in goal by North Tahoe junior Angela Wood, who made several skilled saves throughout the game.
The Truckee girls are now 15-3-2 overall and 2-0-3 in Mount Rose League play. North Tahoe is 4-7-1 overall and 1-3-1 in league.
In the boys game, Truckee senior Jesse Fereira scored a goal in the eighth minute, while Fernando Rodriguez scored off an assist from Fereira in the 25th minute. North Tahoe's goal scorer was not immediately available.
Truckee's boys are 18-2 overall (with both losses to Sparks) and 4-1 in league. North Tahoe is 0-4-1 in league.
Both Truckee teams took on South Tahoe on the road last Thursday. The girls played the two-time defending state champs to a 2-2 tie, while the Truckee boys won 2-1.
Sophomore Leo Villa finally put the Truckee boys on the board with a goal in the 65th minute, assisted by Thomas Arnstein. Truckee's final score came on an own goal by South Tahoe in the 70th minute.
In the girls game, both teams scored one goal in the first half and one in the second.
