OROVILLE, Calif. — The Lake Tahoe Community college soccer teams took to the road Tuesday, Nov. 3, and delivered split results in a Golden Valley Conference doubleheader. The Coyotes’ men’s team got back on track with a 2-0 win over Butte College while the LTCC women’s team fell to the Roadrunners 4-1.

LTCC MEN BOUNCE BACK WITH 2-0 WIN

In the second match of the doubleheader, Lake Tahoe capped it by getting back on track. The Coyotes beat Butte 2-0, bouncing back from their first loss in conference play four days earlier.

Lake Tahoe (13-4-2, 6-1-1 GVC) scored a goal early in each half en route to victory Tuesday. Nicky Twumasi opened the scoring in the sixth minute off an assist from Jesse Anderson and Carlos Trujeque scored five minutes into the second half assisted by Jerrell Cato to make it 2-0.

Victor Andrades saved two shots to keep Butte (6-11-2, 3-5) off the board. Through Thursday, Nov. 5, the Coyotes remained two points behind league-leading Feather River College (Quincy, Calif.) in the conference standings.

COYOTES WOMEN FALL TO BUTTE 4-1

The Coyotes opened the twinbill with a 4-1 defeat to the Roadrunners. Lake Tahoe surrendered a goal three minutes into the match and never recovered en route to a three-goal defeat.

“Overall our effort was the worst it’s been of the year, which is so disappointing after last week’s Feather River loss because that was one of our best games in terms of effort,” Coyotes head coach Jeremy Evans said. “Teams that aren’t consistent get punished, and that is exactly what is happening with us right now.”

Lake Tahoe (4-11-1, 2-6) allowed two goals in the first 15 minutes Tuesday and trailed 2-0 at halftime. The Coyotes had a pair of close chances in the opening stanza against Butte (11-4-1, 6-2) but couldn’t convert.

Butte added two more goals in the second half before the Coyotes got on the board. Shawa Guerrero-Escobedo found the back of the net in the 65th minute, though it wasn’t enough to get Lake Tahoe back in the match — Evans said Mackenna Lynn and Brianna Carroll delivered solid performances throughout the contest.

Lake Tahoe returned to action Friday, Nov. 6, with a doubleheader against College of the Redwoods (Eureka, Calif.) in Redding, California. The Coyotes conclude the regular season at home on Friday, Nov. 13, against Shasta College (Redding) — the doubleheader is scheduled to start at 11 a.m.
