Viking boys jump on Churchill, cruise to win

After three games without scoring a goal, the South Tahoe boys’ soccer team got on track Wednesday with an 8-3 victory over Churchill in Fallon, Nevada.

Daniel Hernandez recorded a hat trick to lead the Vikings’ offense while Armando Rosales and Giovani Yanez scored two goals apiece and Oscar Marzocco netted one.

South Tahoe (3-2-2 3A Northern League) scored seven goals in the first half.

“Our team’s moving in the right direction,” said Vikings head coach Leon Abravanel. “We have a strong game on Saturday vs. North Tahoe who is undefeated. We believe that if we play our best, we can get a result vs. anyone in Nevada.”

The Vikings are in fifth place in the 3A Northern League and will host the Lakers (7-0-0 3A Northern) at noon Saturday at South Tahoe.

Truckee is in second (5-1-0) followed by Sparks (4-1-1) and Elko (4-3-0).
