Reed picked up a big 2-1 home win over McQueen on Tuesday night.
After a lopsided 5-0 loss to Spanish Springs on Saturday, Reed improved to 7-5-0, 7-5-0. McQueen fell to 5-8-1, 4-6-2.
Hannah Anderson put the Raiders in front 1-0 in the ninth minute. However, it was Ali Miller’s penalty kick goal in the 26th minute that proved to be the game winner.
“(This game) all of our players contributed, even though we only had thirteen players,” Reed coach Jason Saville said. “We possessed well and finished most of our opportunities. McQueen was on a roll—they tied Spanish Springs and barely lost to Reno. We knew, based off our last game against (McQueen), they would come with passion and fired up to win.”
Kendra McAnich scored McQueen’s lone goal in the 15th minute—temporarily tying the game before Miller’s tally.
“We played well—both teams did—but we struggled to score,” McQueen coach Tony Filicchia said. “We were every bit as good as Reed, if not better.”
Reed hosts Incline Village on Thursday in a non-league meeting before returning to DI North play on Saturday at home against Hug. First touch is at 11 a.m.
“We are trying to get back in the race (for the league title),” Saville said.
Hug forfeits to Spanish Springs
Spanish Springs was scheduled to host Hug on Tuesday night. Instead, it settled for a scrimmage against the Nevada club team.
The Hawks (4-12-0, 1-11-0) forfeited.
The league-leading Cougars now sit at 11-3-1, 8-3-1 heading into Saturdays’ crucial High Desert League match at second-place Reno. First touch is at 11 a.m.
