South Tahoe boys’ soccer team gets revenge over North Tahoe
The Vikings avenged an earlier tie against 3A North Tahoe with a 4-0 win over the Lakers on Tuesday afternoon in Tahoe City.
“The difference was that we were playing very unselfishly and we played like a team,” said Vikings coach Joe Winters. “We created a lot of chances to score and managed to put a few in. It was a good comeback for us, especially playing on their field. The guys came out focused.”
Alex Torres got the scoring started for the Vikings in the 12th minute off an assist by Corey Vermillion, who followed that up with his own goal in the 17th minute from a Leon Abravanel assist.
The Vikings led 2-0 at the half.
In the 51st minute, Victor Mariscal scored off a Torres pass and Abravanel wrapped up the effort with a goal in the 60th minute on an assist by P.J. Bacon.
“I thought the defense played great with Tim Head, Jason Debacker and Chris Borek and our goalkeeper Carlos Ramirez,” Winters said. “They kept North Tahoe from getting many chances to score. Our defense has been playing very strong, only allowing one goal in the last seven games.”
The Vikings play next at Douglas tonight beginning at 3:30 p.m.
