South Tahoe undefeated in home schedule

Senior forward and midfielder Alyssa Reilly scored a hat trick in South Tahoe High’s last home game of the year Tuesday.

The lady Vikings racked up another shutout by defeating Carson 5-0, the only team it had not yet seen in the 4A Northern Region Sierra League.

The Vikings scored four goals in the first 28 minutes over the defending Sierra League champions.

Reilly had assists from Jennifer Napier, Stacey Volkmar and Megan Hoppe.

Kelly Meyer scored the other two goals. Nolie Pierini had an assist.

“We’re feeling pretty good at this point,” said South Tahoe head coach Julia Russell. “We’ve seen everyone at this point, and now we go into the second half the season on the road to see if we can make it for the rest of the year.”

South Tahoe is first in league at 6-0. This is its second straight shutout.

Carson dropped to third place in league at 3-3.

“I think South Tahoe won almost every 50-50 ball,” Carson coach Mike Popp said. “Our intensity is really not there right now. I was expecting more out of South Tahoe since they beat Douglas. But I think Douglas has more skill than Tahoe and are still the team to beat. But Tahoe is good. They are much better than last year. They control the ball a lot better than in previous years.”
