Reed handles Sparks in non-league contest
Reed scored twice in the first seven minutes on Wednesday afternoon at Sparks and went on to roll, 8-1, for a non-league road win.
The Raiders (2-1-0, 1-1-0) have now scored 12 goals in a span of less than 24 hours, handling Bishop Manogue 4-0 on Tuesday night. It will be Reed’s only non-league game of the season.
“Hopefully we keep it rolling,” Reed coach Jason Saville said. “The girls are moving the ball well.”
Sparks dropped to 1-5-0, 0-0-0 in its final non-league tune up. Five of the 3A North program’s six games have been against 4A schools.
“(It did) not (go) well as a preparation games goes,” Sparks coach Art Hurtado said. “It went like expected. (We are) still working on formations and personnel.
“Reed has more talent and speed than North Valleys (Sparks beat North Valleys 4-1 on Friday) which was a factor and we just could not make the adjustments in time.”
One night after scoring a goal and assisting on three others against the Miners, senior Hannah Anderson recorded a hat trick, and added an assist. Lauryn Shipp scored twice and also recorded an assist.
The duo put Reed up 2-0 in the early minutes before Angie Hurtado scored Sparks lone goal in the 13th minute. Ashlee Saville answered in the 21st with an assist from Hannah Grant.
Grant netted the final goal of the game in the 56th minute (MacKenzie Zappe assist). Sophomore Mikayla Farrow made the score 7-1 four minutes earlier, finishing off Kiarra Miller’s second assist.
Reed will look for its third-straight win on Saturday afternoon at Carson (0-2-0, 0-2-0). First touch is at 1:30 p.m.
Sparks will open 3A North play on Friday evening at home against Elko (5 p.m.). The Indians edged the Railroaders 2-1 in a non-league tournament contest on Aug. 26 in south Reno.
Reed’s Fleiner takes second at Red Hawk
Red Hawk Golf and Resort was home to the second High Desert League girls golf tournament of the season on Wednesday afternoon.
For the second consecutive week, Reno took home the team title. For the second consecutive week, it was against limited competition. The Huskies (368) only had to top the Lancers (390) in the team competition because no other school had enough golfers to qualify.
And for the second consecutive week, Reed’s Kaitlin Fleiner finished second overall. Her round of 74 was one stroke back of McQueen’s Megan Gaskill for medalist honors, and three strokes better than last week’s medalist, Reno’s Abbi Fleiner.
Tiffany Nila-Herrera was the only other Raider on the course. She finished with a 143.
Katie Gilbertson was the lone Spanish Springs golfer. Her round of 90 was good for fifth overall.
Hidden Valley Country Club will host the third HDL tourney of the season on Tuesday.
