Vikings defeat Hug, but show weaknesses

The Vikings girls’ soccer team defeated Hug on the road Tuesday, but the result was a disappointment to coach Julia Russell.

The Vikings defeated Hug 3-1, but it was a closer game than their first 2002 confrontation, when the Vikings won 12-1.

“It’s a win, but we’re disappointed,” Russell said.

The team’s lack of intensity reared its head again, like it did for the first few minutes of each game earlier in the season.

“We have to play the best game we can play every time. And we didn’t do that tonight,” Russell said.

The Vikings took a 3-0 lead with goals by Stacey Volkmar in the 18th minute, Kelly Meyer in the 35th minute and Leah Simon in the 58th minute.

Hug scored late in the game.

“I think we were a little let down from Douglas … and I think we maybe went in a little overconfident,” said assistant coach Randy Volkmar. “But we’re still in first place.”

The Vikings improved to 7-0-1 in the 4A Northern Region Sierra League and 10-0-1 overall.

They face Reno at the Huskies’ home field on Friday at 3 p.m.


South Tahoe High’s junior varsity ran its league volleyball mark to 9-0 with a 15-10, 15-8 sweep of North Valleys on Tuesday night. Jessica Klingler had 15 service aces.
