TAHOE CITY, Calif. — For the second straight season, the Whittell girls soccer team has delivered a league championship. The Warriors beat North Tahoe 2-1 on the road Tuesday to secure a second consecutive Division III North League title.

Whittell (15-1, 13-0 III North) got goals from forwards Kenya Maltase and Ali Copsy in the victory; midfielders Kate Krolicki and Gigi Stetler each had assists. It was the Warriors’ second one-goal win in their last four matches.

Freshman Taimani Hussey got the start for Whittell in goal and made six saves in the victory. The Warriors secured the outright league championship with one match left in the regular season — North Tahoe (7-5, 6-3) will finish in either third or fourth place.

Whittell concludes the regular season at home against Yerington on Wednesday at 6 p.m. The Warriors will host the NIAA Div. III state championships, which begin Friday, Nov. 7.
