Vikings make good mudders

Tribune staff report

If the South Tahoe High girls soccer team ever needs to play some fall soccer in the Pacific Northwest it will be well-adjusted.

The Vikings played in Oregon-like weather Saturday as rain, snow and near-freezing conditions inconvenienced them and Wooster. However, the Vikings seemed unbothered as they pummelled the Colts 5-0 in the Northern Nevada League Division II game at South Tahoe Middle School.

“It was quite a victory in very adverse conditions,” said Viking coach Julia Peyser. “That’s the best I’ve seen them play in some time.”

Tirah Samura topped Viking scoring with two goals, while Christie Higman, Ashlee Francis and Melissa Stetson chipped in a goal. Four of the Vikings’ goals occurred in the second half.

The Vikings (7-9-1) close out regular season play against Fallon today at South Tahoe Middle School.

South Tahoe has qualified for next week’s zone tournament, where it will open with Division I champion Galena in Reno.
