Vikings win league opener by blanking Incline
South Tahoe’s boys beat Incline for the second time in the young season, shutting out the Highlanders 3-0 Thursday in Incline Village.
Senior Kory DiGrande opened the scoring in the 30th minute on a feed from Eddie Hernandez. Five minutes into the second half, Hernandez made it 2-0, scoring off a cross from Luca Genasci. Derek Caro scored the Vikings’ final goal, knocking a corner kick off the back of a defender and into the goal.
STHS assistant coach Bill Spicer said the Vikings’ offense came alive after adjusting to the smaller field, and a solid defensive effort was led by Griffen Boles, DiGrande, Martin Sanchez, Evan Sanchez and Ryan Caro. Keepers Sergio Rodriguez and Peter Pielaet-Strayer shared the shutout.
