Girls post 6-1 win over Sparks
The Douglas High girls’ soccer team did just about everything right in its 6-1 victory over Sparks on Tuesday.
Julia Spaulding scored two goals, both on volleys off corner kicks, as the Tigers out-shot the Railroaders, 26-6.
“That was the best game we’ve played,” DHS coach Fred Schmidt said. “We’re learning to work together. Our starting group is starting to look strong.”
Center midfielder Stephanie Webb scored her first goal of the season to give the Tigers (2-0-2) a 1-0 lead.
Shasta Ceragioli made it 2-0 and fullback Mariah Weigel gave Douglas a 3-0 halftime lead with a blast from 50 yards that bounced over the Sparks goalkeeper’s head.
Lindsay Dimitri added a goal in the second half to go with Spaulding’s two scores.
Only a late goal by Sparks prevented the shutout by sophomore goalkeeper Ashley Sulprizio.
Schmidt was pleased with the play of his defense, led by sweeper Sarah Girdner, stopper Erin Bell and fullbacks Ali Shea and Weigel.
“The defense looked very solid,” the coach said. “The fullbacks we attacking and making runs. Everyone was getting into the offense and everyone was playing defense.”
Schmidt also praised the play of wings Sarah Shearer and Ceragioli.
“If we could bottle what we did in that game and uncork it when we needed it, we would be awfully hard to beat,” Schmidt said. “I may be being selfish, but I think the girls can play better.”
The Tigers were scheduled to play South Tahoe Thursday, but that game was postponed until Oct. 8. The team played Incline in a tournament at Truckee High Friday night. The Tigers will play three 60-minute games in the same tournament today.
