STHS explodes for 10-0 victory

Staff report

If there was any concern the South Tahoe boys’ soccer team might not have enough goal scorers, the Vikings put that worry to rest on Wednesday against North Valleys.

Anthony DeMarta had two goals and three assists, while Gil Navarro and Paulo Caetano each had two goals in South Tahoe’s 10-0 shellacking of the Panthers in a Sierra League game at South Tahoe Middle School. South Tahoe (9-3-1 overall, 5-1 league) led 6-0 at halftime, with DeMarta having a role in five of the goals and Ian Chandler notching one of the Vikings’ other goals.

“After the fourth goal, we subbed out all the starters except for our defense,” said STHS coach Chris DeLeon. “Sometimes these games can be detrimental to our style of play. The bench was able to contribute quite a bit. That’s something we’re taking a look at right now, who has the potential to help with this team.”

In the second half, Alredo Solorio, Diego Villagrana and Chase Grant scored goals for the Vikings, who have outscored their opponents 18-2 in the last four games. Caetano, Andrew Muñoz and Josh Daugherty all recorded at least one assist in Wednesday’s victory.

South Tahoe hosts Hug on Saturday at 1 p.m.
