The Miners took on the newly crowned Sierra Foothill League champs Tuesday, facing the Golden Eagles of Del Oro.
Despite trailing 30-17 at the half, the Miners never quit, battling the whole way, said NU head coach Jeff Dellis. But, in the end Del Oro (26-1, 10-0 SFL) was just too big and physical.
The Miners (7-20, 1-8 SFL) got 13 points from senior Nolan Stefani, eight from Daniel Carter and seven from senior Garrett O’Callaghan in the loss.
“I’m so proud of our seniors,” Dellis said. “It would have been easy for them to cash it in at any point this season, but they didn’t, they kept battling. I’m really proud of our seniors.”
Tuesday’s game concludes the season for Nevada Union.
