LAKE TAHOE CC SOCCER SWEEPS REDWOODS IN REGULAR SEASON FINALE
OROVILLE, Calif. — The Lake Tahoe Community College soccer teams closed out the regular season by taking care of business in a doubleheader off the hill Thursday, Nov. 10. The Coyotes swept College of the Redwoods in Golden Valley Conference matches held at Butte College, taking important steps toward the playoffs in the process.
The Lake Tahoe men’s team (12-4-6, 8-1-3 GVC) beat Redwoods 4-0, a result that likely secures a home match to open the regional playoffs. Sophomore Jack Larter led the way for the Coyotes with a hat trick, giving the converted defender 10 goals in seven matches since moving up top.
Freshman Josh Anderson also scored for LTCC in Thursday’s victory. Lake Tahoe finished five points behind conference champion Feather River College in the final standings — the teams played to two ties during the regular season.
The Coyotes’ women’s team (11-5-4, 8-2-2) rolled to a 7-0 victory over the Corsairs in the first game of the twinbill. Sophomore Shawa Guerrero-Escobedo and freshman Kenya Maltase scored two goals apiece in the win while sophomore Kendall Eagan, freshman Victoria Sanchez and freshman Marlie Mandaguit also found the back of the net.
For Lake Tahoe, the victory clinched second place in conference and set a single-season program record for victories. The Coyotes now wait to see if a postseason berth is in their future — they can’t finish higher than 14th, and need some results to go their way to make the playoffs.
The CCCAA playoffs begin with the NorCal regional first round Saturday, Nov. 19.
