Colfax 7, Bear River 0
The Bruins stranded six runners in the first three innings and never recovered Friday at Colfax, getting shutout by the Falcons and losing by seven.
Travis Anderson took the loss on the mound after going 3 2/3 innings and allowing five runs.
Michael Scudero finished the game on the bump, throwing 2 1/3 innings and striking out four.
When Bear River did hit, it was hard. The Bruins had only four hits, but three were doubles. Jake Sypnicki, Michael Raigoza and David Chorjel each had a two bagger, and Brodie Beck added a single.
The Bruins (3-6, 2-2 Pioneer Valley League) will look to right the ship Monday when they travel to the Selma Kiwanis Tournament to take on Chavez.
Lady Miners two in SFL play
The Nevada Union girls soccer team opened Sierra Foothill League play this week, taking on a pair of powerhouses to get things kicked off.
Facing Rocklin on Tuesday and Granite Bay on Thursday, the Lady Miners dropped both games, 4-0 and 3-0, respectively.
In both matches Nevada Union allowed one goal in the first half and played some strong possession and solid defense. Keepers Emma Curtis and Ellie Demartini did fantastic jobs blocking shots from some of the strongest strikers in the region.
Seniors Sarah Christal and Meaghan O’Conner, in the center defensive line, held strong as NU’s attacking players did everything they could to try to get the ball in the net.
The Lady Miners had some great opportunities, got off several great shot attempts, but both teams amped up the intensity and the game became pretty physical.
Nevada Union will regroup and iron out the weak spots, said head coach Ken Ramirez.
