STHS, Reno tie in soccer

Staff reports

Trailing first-place Carson and Douglas by one point in the Sierra League standings, the South Tahoe boys’ soccer team didn’t gain any ground on them on Wednesday as the Vikings tied Reno 0-0 at Reno High School.

“We had our opportunities, shots off the post, that kind of thing,” said STHS coach Chris DeLeon. “It was a very physical game, and this is the type of game we are going to face in the playoffs. Reno is tied with Wooster for fourth place and we’re trying to hang on for third place.”

STHS (14-3-3 overall, 7-2-3 league) remains in third place and will host Wooster on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Community Youth Sports Complex. Carson and Douglas are still tied for first with 27 points, while STHS is next at 24 points.

The Vikings improve to 10-1-3 overall and host Wooster on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Community Youth Sports Complex.
