Calvo’s goal propels WHS past Spring Creek

Staff reports

After being unable to convert several scoring chances early in the first half, the Whittell High boys’ soccer team finally broke through in the 42nd minute in beating Spring Creek 1-0 on Friday in Zephyr Cove.

Ignacio Calvo scored the Warriors’ lone goal, helping the team improve to 10-8-2 overall.

“It was a solid win for us,” said WHS coach Steve Maltase. “Spring Creek was coming off a win over Battle Mountain and it scored four goals, so it was big for our defense to shut them down.”
