Douglas boys’ soccer wins 11th consecutive game

by Chuck Smock

The Douglas boys’ soccer team won its 11th consecutive game Saturday, but it was pretty – or easy.

The Tigers (11-1) were trailing Lowry High, 1-0, with 10 minutes to play in Winnemucca when they rallied for two late goals that secured a 2-1 victory. One of the Douglas goals deflected off a Lowry defender.

“We were real flat,” said coach Mike Robinson, whose team had played three games in four days and had to endure a five-hour bus ride to play Lowry. “We had a lot of excuses, but we just didn’t play well. It was a poor game. At least we didn’t lose it.”

Brett Marenco and Jeremy Louthan scored the Tigers’ goals. Louthan’s goal was his 20th for the season. The single-season scoring record for the Douglas boys’ team is 27 goals.

As a team, the Tigers have scored 50 goals this season and have allowed 11 goals in 12 games.

Louthan scored a three-goal hat-trick against the Wooster Colts on Friday to help Douglas to a 7-1 victory.

Kevin Rohrbough, Brett Marenco, Rory Marenco and David Harder each scored one goal.

“We played well against Wooster,” Robinson said.

“We really moved the ball around the field.”

Defenders Kevin Krueger, Caleb Currence, Ryan Rogers, Brandon Peart and Brett Marenco continue to play well for the Tigers, according to Robinson.

Douglas plays at Galena today and will play host to Reed on Saturday.

The Tigers have six matches left in the regular season.

Douglas is tuning up for what it hopes will be a rematch with McQueen – the only team to beat the Tigers this season – in the championship match of the zone tournament.

“We’re pretty happy with the way we’re playing,” Robinson said.

“We’re not happy with the way we played against McQueen (in the first game of the season). If we play them again, we’ll play with more intensity and pride.”
