Chandler, Boles lead the way for Vikings
Seniors Ian Chandler and Josh Boles connected for a pair of second-half goals as the South Tahoe HIgh boys’ soccer team battled back from a 2-1 deficit to defeat North Tahoe 4-3 in a nonleague game on Monday in Tahoe City.
Trailing 2-1 at halftime, Chandler’s cross in the 40th minute was scored by Boles as the Vikings evened the game at 2. In the 58th minute, Anthony DeMarta’s shot deflected off the keeper and was redirected by Gil Navarro as South Tahoe led 3-2.
Then in the 70th minute, another Chandler cross from the wing found Boles, who slotted a shot past the keeper for a 4-2 advantage and what proved to be the game-winning goal. North Tahoe scored in the 79th minute.
“Both Ian Chandler and Josh Boles had great games, and it was nice to see them get rewarded with a couple goals and assists,” said STHS assistant coach Ed McClain. “North Tahoe is a scrappy team. They’re not that deep, but they have some very talented soccer players on their team.”
Diego Villagrana gave South Tahoe a 1-0 lead in the 30th minute by converting a penalty kick before the Lakers scored twice in the next 10 minutes.
The Vikings (11-3-1) have a Sierra League game on Wednesday against Damonte Ranch at 3 p.m. at STMS. South Tahoe is tied with Reno and Carson atop the league standings with 6-1 records going into the second half of the league season. The Vikings host the Huskies on Saturday.
