Lake Tahoe Community College women’s soccer roars past Siskiyous
Kenya Maltase, Rebecca Niblett and Melanie Ara each scored two goals, while Sydney Woodward added three assists Tuesday, Oct. 3, in helping the Lake Tahoe Community College women’s soccer team to an 11-0 Golden Valley Conference win over College of Siskiyous in Weed.
Maltase, a South Tahoe graduate, leads the team in scoring with eight goals and three assists, and ranks 19th in the state in points scored. Goalie Claudia Janese, another South Tahoe graduate, posted her eighth shutout of the season and her goals against average on the season (.055) is the seventh-best in California among keepers who have started at least eight games.
The Lady Coyotes (7-2-3 overall, 3-0 conference) also got goals from Zareli Villa, Jazmine Corvalan, Mylene Moran, Jenny Camacho and Megan Masters. Lake Tahoe’s 41 goals scored this season ranks fifth in the state and 14 different players have recorded goals for the Lady Coyotes.
“We came out aggressive and pressed them and started the best we have all season,” said third-year coach Jeremy Evans. “We scored five goals in the first 15 minutes and they seemed hungry for more. As a coach, I was a little unsure what to do and had to sub in our second line shortly thereafter. We haven’t collectively, all 11 players on the field at once, had that type of desire or hunger to start a game. It was beautiful to see, and hopefully we can keep it going against our rival on Friday.”
The Coyotes, who have won four straight games and outscored their opponents 27-0 in that span, host Feather River College in a key GVC game at 4 p.m. Friday at Lake Tahoe Community College.
