Vikings move back into first place

Avoiding a tie for the second time in five matches, the South Tahoe High girls’ soccer team moved back into first place in the Sierra Division on Tuesday in Reno.

The Vikings blanked North Valleys 4-0 as Jen Napier scored two goals.

“It’s nice to get a win under our belts, and we’re ready for Carson,” said STHS coach Julia Russell. “We’ve been plagued by the tie bug.”

South Tahoe moved one point ahead of second-place Douglas. The Vikings play Carson in their regular-season finale Oct. 29, while Douglas plays Reno.

With precise passing and the upper hand in ball control, the Vikings kept the pressure on North Valleys. STHS took a 1-0 lead on Lauren Bachelder’s goal on a pass from Tiffany Von Diemar in the 25th minute.

The Vikings scored their final three goals, including two unassisted shots by Napier, after halftime. Tracey Ketelsen scored the Vikings’ final goal unassisted in the 80th minute.

The Vikings, however, received some bads concerning an injury to junior Kelley Meyer. Meyer fractured her patella during an Oct. 16 match at Wooster.

STHS’s JV won 7-0.
