SPARKS — Carson High and Reed battled to a scoreless tie in a Division 1 girls crossover soccer match Tuesday night.
Carson is 1-0-1 heading into Saturday’s home showdown against Spanish Springs at 1 p.m.
“We played well,” Carson coach Greg Lehman said, adding that he felt his team should have won. “Our defense played very well. We had good ball movement and created some good scoring opportunities. We just couldn’t find the back of the net.”
Lindy Lehman and Bailie Zuber played well on defense, and Julie Torres was solid in the midfield in her first game of the season. Chantal Torres had one of the better scoring opportunities for the Senators.

Dayton fell to 1-1 overall heading into Thursday’s match at Truckee.
“We had four really good opportunities,” Dayton coach Jared Miklich said. “One went off the post and another was headed to the upper corner and their goalie made a nice play on it. We had a couple other chances.”
Miklich praised the play of defender Briseida Lozano and midfielder Claire Holloway. Goalie Kristina Mason recorded five saves.
Fernley handles Dayton

Jaime Avila, off an assist by Marco Torres, scored Dayton’s lone goal.
“Fernley has improved quite a bit from last year,” said Dayton coach Vismar Rivas. “They have a lot of players back, and we’re a young team with a lot of freshmen and sophomores. We’re starting all over again.”
Dayton visits Truckee on Thursday.
Truckee sweeps Dayton
DAYTON — The Wolverines survived three tough sets against the Dust Devils en route to a 25-19, 25-20 and 25-20 Northern Division 1A victory Tuesday night.
Dayton, 0-1 in league play, hosts Lowry at 6 p.m. Friday.
“We were sluggish,” Dayton coach Mike Edmiston said. “Looking at the stats, it was our inability to put the ball down. They are a good team, but we’re not hitting the ball well.
“Shalia (Powell) only had 18 assists. They had some tall girls up front, but they weren’t any bigger than us. It was pretty even across the front at the net.”
Cheyanne Strong finished with four kills and five digs, Kaylee Turner had five kills, two blocks and three aces, and Rachel Hadley had four kills and six digs. Libero Elvia Diaz finished with nine kills.
Dayton had just service aces.
“We served a lot better at the (Yerington) tournament,” Edmiston said. “Truckee served a lot more aggressively.”
